After a whistleblower in the pharmaceutical cover-up case dies, attorney Kate Sullivan knows the stakes are much higher than her other lawsuits. Get ready to stay up way past your bedtime turning the pages to find out what happens next in Rachel Dylan’s new legal thriller, Deadly Proof. Trying to forget the past, former Army Ranger turned private investigator Landon James is hired by Kate to look into the whistleblower’s allegation. He also soon finds himself falling for the passionate and earnest young lawyer. As the case deepens, it appears someone is willing to risk everything—even murder—to keep the case from going to trial.


The first book in this exciting series has started off with a powerful story line. Pharmaceutical companies try to introduce new medicines everyday. What happens when one company pushes for a new drug that they secretly know is harmful? I have to compare this writing style to the caliber of Robin Cook meets John Grisham in a gritty drama that exceeds with high octane action. The author in my opinion has surpassed the above mentioned authors with tough as nails characters and a plot that takes you inside boardrooms to pharmacy labs where secrets are exposed. 

I loved Kate instantly. She is a strong woman with exceptional ethics. When she takes lead on a case involving one of the most powerful pharmaceutical companies , her life is suddenly in danger. The tension mounts as a whistle blower comes forward. Will Kate be able to keep the person alive long enough to testify? The relationship between Kate and Landon was nice and I loved how faith became a factor as they grew closer to each other. 

I loved the fast pace of the story and the details of how lawyers investigate to get their facts in order. It was interesting to see how greed can take over someone and turn them into nothing more than a heartless person. It boggles my mind that a company knowingly will put a dangerous medication on the market for money. Who decides to go a step further in order to win the lawsuit? Are they willing to kill to get what they want?

Landon joins Kate in the investigation and proves to be a valuable asset to her. He is powerful and determined to keep Kate safe. Will he be able to keep her away from danger? The intrigue was incredible and I loved the cat and mouse game the pharmaceutical company played with Kate’s law firm. Their oh so innocent need for time to prepare for trial was devious. 

This is one book you must read if you love thrillers with greed, secrets, danger , lies , and learning to trust. I will be anxiously awaiting the next book in this well written series. 

I received a copy of this book from LitFuse. The review is my own opinion.

Riveting new series offers legal suspense with a romantic twist
In the biggest case of her career, attorney Kate Sullivan is tapped as lead counsel to take on Mason Pharmaceutical because of a corporate cover-up related to its newest drug. After a whistleblower dies, Kate knows the stakes are much higher than her other lawsuits.
Former Army Ranger turned private investigator Landon James is still haunted by mistakes made while serving overseas. Trying to forget the past, he is hired by Kate to look into the whistleblower’s allegation and soon suspects that the company may be engaging in a dangerous game for profit. He also soon finds himself falling for this passionate and earnest young lawyer.
Determined not to make the same mistakes, he’s intent on keeping Kate safe, but as the case deepens, it appears someone is willing to risk everything—even murder—to keep the case from going to trial.
