Pratt writes better legal thrillers than Grisham

Those who have not listened to any of the Joe Dillard legal thrillers by Scott Pratt are in for a treat. This is Book 8 in the series. All eight are stand alone, but listening to them in order is useful because of the development of the main characters is cumulative. This is not the best book in the series but it is still a 5 star legal thriller. The novels in the series include some courtroom activity as well as borderline illegal actions in the cause of justice. Joe Dillard is like what Jack Reacher would be if he had a law degree and a family; he's as willing to get his hands dirty in a fist fight as he is to fight for justice in a courtroom. All of the books in the Joe Dillard are set in northeastern Tennessee.

The books tend to be short at 6 to 8 hours but that is because of Pratt's compact writing style; the stories are rock solid. Tim Campbell is the perfect narrator for this series.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Semblance vs. Realism

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Aristotle declared [Poetics] that organic or living forms was the most important feature of any composition, and that everything in art, however fantastic, must seem like life. However, he also observed that IT NEED ONLY SEEM, NOT ACTUALLY BE, LIFE LIKE. I subscribe to this explanation and feel that the "legal thriller" genre attributed to this book contains nothing of the mystery of so-called form: how a theme or content becomes, from an object of reality an object of art, which distinguishes a phenomenon from its representation, how an "event" becomes a "work", be it fiction or otherwise.


What was most disappointing about Scott Pratt’s story?

Verbosity.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tim Campbell?

Ray Porter
