The Joe Dillard Series Box Set, Part 1: Books 1-4: The Joe Dillard Box Sets Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
"Pratt's richly developed characters are vivid and believable, especially the strong Southern women who fight their male-dominated culture from behind a facade of vulnerability." (Publishers Weekly)
Books one through four in Scott Pratt's iconic Joe Dillard series are offered in a bundle.
An Innocent Client: In this best-selling debut, criminal defense lawyer Joe Dillard has become jaded over the years as he's tried to balance his career against his conscience. Savvy but cynical, Dillard wants to quit doing criminal defense, but he can't resist the chance to represent someone who might actually be innocent. His drug-addicted sister has just been released from prison and his mother is succumbing to Alzheimer's, but Dillard's commitment to the case never wavers despite the personal troubles and professional demands that threaten to destroy him.
In Good Faith: In the second book of the iconic Joe Dillard series, it's up to newly minted prosecutor Joe Dillard to convict Satan-worshipping teens accused of committing heinous crimes. A former defense attorney who spent way too much time defending people he knew were guilty, Joe is determined to win this case to atone for his past. But an evil young woman named Natasha is responsible for the slayings, and Joe knows it. Natasha is walking around free because the two boys who have been arrested are too terrified to implicate her. Now Joe must risk everything—including his family's safety and his own life—to bring an evil murderer to justice.
Injustice For All: In the third book of the best-selling Joe Dillard series, Dillard finds himself in the middle of two volatile mysteries. The primary suspect in a local judge's murder is Dillard's son's best friend, and Dillard's wife may have destroyed evidence. Meanwhile, a missing girl turns out to be a mystery far deeper than anyone imagined....
Reasonable Fear: In the fourth installment of the best-selling Joe Dillard series, Dillard has become the district attorney in Northeast Tennessee. He becomes heavily involved in a local murder investigation with Sheriff Leon Bates and soon realizes that he is up against an enemy that he has never before encountered—someone so rich and so powerful that the course of justice could be altered by money and political influence. But when bodies start showing up in his driveway and his family is threatened with termination, Dillard must ask himself how far he's willing to go. His life, and the lives of his family, depend on the answer.

My introduction to Joe Dillard came through the first novel, An Innocent Client, and I enjoyed it immensely. A travelling preachers is found dead in a motel room and a young waitress at a local drinking establishment is charged with the murder. The manager of this somewhat disreputable bar is a middle-aged southern gal who develops lasting friendships with many of the regulars and several these gentlemen have come to respect her as well. When necessary, they help each other; no strings attached. This was an intelligent novel and I enjoyed the development as it took us through the court system. Five stars!
This novel prompted me to buy the series and I am glad I did!
The second novel, In Good Faith, tested the scope of reality as the paranormal raged through the gristly murder of a family of four. In this novel we become a bit more familiar with Joe Dillard's family and his own shortcomings. He has a bad temper and he acts irrationally at times. I learned to like him, though, and I developed respect for Caroline, his wife. I met his local sheriff, Leon Bates, and the two complement each other though Bates has greater finesse in his strategies. He is also politically astute, something Dillard is not.
Number three, Injustice for All is a multilayered mystery. After a horrendous court scene, a judge is murdered on his own property. Because the body was burned, the area around the body contained little evidence. To make matters worse for the forensic experts, any tracks that may have been at the scene were washed away in the ensuing rain storm. Joe Dillard, however, must now look at the possibility that his colleague's son could have been involved. Again, a very intense novel, tightly written.
Reasonable Fear is the fourth novel and adds another level of corruption, the Colombian mafia and their hired assassins. Dillard has been promoted and the political pressure that comes with the job tests his equilibrium. He makes unpopular decisions and his extended family is targeted by the mafia. They have no choice but to go into hiding. This time Sheriff Bates tells Dillard that he has gone too far. Very riveting and almost impossible to put down!
Novel number five is Conflict of Interest. A couple's only child is kidnapped and the parents want Dillard to represent them but this becomes impossible. No perpetrator is found and the FBI charge the father with the abduction. The wife sues for divorce. Mr. Munroe is imprisoned and his assets are seized. At the preliminary hearing Joe Dillard is dismissed. Beneath this complex development, however, are two additional strands of tensions and Pratt handles them all in a most interesting way. Tension is tight and the reader becomes desperate in his search for the solutions. Great writing!
OK, so there were a few spelling mistakes, and a few homonyms were misplaced, but by and large these were lost in the tension of the novels.
I am now starting number six: Blood Money.

All the above makes for excellent reading. I certainly recommend this set as all the books are great.
You could not go wrong buying these books. He keep captures you in the first book and does not let you go and you do not want to either.
Thrilling court work from all sides.
