A classic entry in the Shell Scott series! This was a warm Sunday afternoon; Sheldon Scott, Investigations—my downtown L.A. office—was closed, and I was invited to a party. A Hawaiian party at that: luau, roast pig, the works. From behind the house somewhere I heard a happy squeal. A happy feminine squeal. Sounded like a good wild party. There was a lot of hellish yelling and whooping. At the top of six cement steps I found a buzzer on the right of the massive door, poked it as chimes went off to the tune of How Dry I Am.

"If you like Reacher, the Lincoln Lawyer, Jake Brigance and Paul Madriani, you'll be excited to meet Joe Dillard!" --Amazon Five-Star Review "I predict it won't be long before you see Scott Pratt's name mentioned with Lee Child, Michael Connelly, John Grisham, and Steve Martini when critics talk about legal/crime fiction." --Amazon Five-Star Review "Every bit as good as Grisham! Superb characterization, suspense, drama." --Amazon Five-Star Review "I love the Dillard Series by Scott Pratt. As a retired attorney who practiced transactional law and not civil or criminal litigation, I appreciate the way Scott reveals the tension between defense attorneys and prosecutors, the prejudices of both toward each other, the Judge, and law enforcement." --Amazon Five-Star Review

"Reasonable Fear" is the fourth of the acclaimed Joe Dillard series offered by Scott Pratt. The series has encompassed legal thriller, legal mystery, and legal suspense, and has been favorably compared to the master, John Grisham. In this novel, Joe Dillard has become the district attorney in Northeast Tennessee and is confronted with the most difficult case of his life. Three young women have been murdered, and Dillard becomes deeply involved in the case with Sheriff Leon Bates. Dillard 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 easily be altered by money and politics. When the villains start threatening Dillard's family, he asks himself the most difficult question he has ever faced: "When is it reasonable under the law to kill? What circumstances make it reasonable to use violence to defend one's own family?" Dillard's life, and the lives of his wife and children, will depend on the answer, and on the strength of his character.
