Publisher's Summary

A family of four is slaughtered in rural Tennessee. Two weeks later, a retired high school principal and his wife are brutally slain. Two Satan-worshipping teens stand accused. It's up to prosecutor Joe Dillard to convict them. 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.

An Enjoyable Listen

I've listen to and enjoyed 8 of Scott Pratt’s stories 6 of which was the Joe Dillard series. His stories grab your attention immediately and hold your interest throughout the novel. Joe Dillard is his own "Jack Reacher" type personality with a little bit of MacGyvver" thrown in for good measure. He'll "get the job done" by any means necessary.

This novel is about gruesome murders committed by two male devil worshipers lead by a redheaded woman. A family of four is slaughtered in rural Tennessee, and two weeks later, a retired high school principal and his wife are brutally slain. Prosecutor Joe Dillard must risk his own life as well as his family's life to bring the "evil murderer to justice." Joe is determined to win this case as atonement for some of his past wins defending people he knew were guilty. The plot has some twists and turns, and the suspense builds throughout the story.

If you are looking for interesting stories which has lots of action and are delivered at a pace that does not overwhelm or confuse the listener, the Joe Dillard series 1 thru 6 may be for you. I don't plan to read books 7 and 8. Tim Campbell does a great job narrating the story.

The incidents portrayed left me sick to my stomach

Every negative stereotype I've ever heard about justice in the south was reinforced in this book: civil servants taking the law into their own hands or looking the other way at illegal activities, sheriffs wielding their own brand of justice and blackmailing and making deals for their own personal benefit, judges ignoring the obvious letter and spirit of the law and using their warped interpretation of it to come up with perverted sentences based on personal inclinations, crime scene evidence being manipulated to favor a false interpretation of events.

There was a fairly interesting story interwoven among the criminal justice debacles, but my goodness, how can one enjoy it in the midst of all the legal shenanigans? Is this the way things are still done down there?

I found myself becoming more incensed along the way. I may be incredibly naive, but I love our American system of jurisprudence, and I like to think that justice does prevail most of the time.

This book reinforces why, even today, I won't drive into the deep South.

As a final note, because of the insufficiency of the narrator, I had quite a difficult time discerning whom was speaking and had to backup and go over many parts of the dialogue.
