Linda S. Prather is a new author to me, whereas I have listened to several books performed by Logan McAllister. Both are extremely talented. I loved all of the unexpected twists this book had. I typically listen to romances most of the time with mystery and thriller books added in for change of pace. This story gripped me from the very beginning. Logan added so much to the book with the various voices he performed and was able to add a sense of urgency. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and or publisher. I highly recommend this book and will look for more books by both the author and narrator.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this audiobook to a friend, but I would make sure they understood that it wasn't what one might think of as a 'legal thriller.' I honestly thought it was going to be more of a courtroom thriller, which it wasn't. It was entertaining and the narration was spot on.
What did you like best about this story?
Quite a few people were saying that they were bothered that Jenna seems naive and that as an Assistant DA, she should have been a stronger character both as an ADA and as the female lead. While I agree from a stereotypical standpoint, I enjoyed the story nonetheless. It's fiction and I try to always allow for some margin of artistic license. With this in mind, I enjoyed Jenna's story and can't believe the how terrible some people can be! It was a fast paced audiobook and I enjoyed the cast of characters-from the good to the bad ones.
Have you listened to any of Logan McAllister’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This was my first Logan McAllister narrated novel. I think he did a great job and enjoyed listening to his narration. There is enough variance in his voice to tell the difference between characters and he has an easy listening cadence. I'll definitely have no issues listening to other novels narrated by Mr. McAllister.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
"All is not what it seems..." The book definitely takes quite the twist from the story that you're listening to in the beginning.

The emphasis is on the thriller rather than the legal as very little action takes place in the courts. Plenty occurs outside of them, however, involving those who should be above, but not outside, the law - from judges to the defence and prosecuting attorneys.
Jenna Patience James is a successful, fast rising prosecuting attorney and has for some time been dating Michael, the attractive and wealthy son of the powerful Judge William Elkins. When Michael's mother dies 'in an accident', Jenna discovers that not only is Michael not the man she had thought him to be but also that corruption, and worse, lie deep in the justice system. Lives are lost, murders committed and Jenna has to decide who to trust as she, herself, is horribly threatened.
This is a fast paced thriller with numerous twists and well developed characters as Jenna finds herself caught in a lethal battle between rich and powerful men who will stop at nothing to save their positions. Narrator Logan McAllister gives a superb reading, clear, well paced and giving distinctive voice to the numerous protagonists.
Beyond Reasonable Doubt is the first book I have read by author, Linda Prather, but will certainly not be the last. I was very fortunate to have been gifted my copy by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you, I enjoyed it enormously, even if it did sometimes stretch credibility to it's limits, and can wholeheartedly recommend it to all who prefer their legal thrillers to take place outside of the courtroom.
