Joe Dillard Untangles Legal and Personal Webs
This is book 5 of the Joe Dillard series, and tells the story of Joe's taking on clients whose young daughter was kidnapped from her home during the night. Scott Pratt's writing style is conversational and flows well to keep up the pace of the plot. I was engaged from beginning to end with tension on each page regarding the little girl's disappearance. In spite of hard evidence pointing to the girl's father, Joe finally feels his client is innocent and looks for suspects close to business and family relationships. Meanwhile, adding conflict and challenge to his life, Joe discovers the truth about his father supposedly killed in Viet Nam. Without giving too much away, health issues with Joe's wife arise, testing his core stamina and character. This book would appeal to those of us who enjoy a good who-dunnit, with an interesting and likable protagonist who isn't perfect, but very human indeed.
