Product Description

Review

Singer, the attorney-author of several solid legal thrillers, turns in another winner. Landon Reed used to be a football quarterback, until he fixed a couple of games to make some quick cash. He did his time, then went to law school, and now he's joined a legal firm run by the affable Harry McNaughten, who is soon killed in a mugging gone wrong. When more members of the firm are killed, Landon suspects these are not random tragedies but deliberate acts of murder. Landon is deeply affected by the men's death, and the reader shares his grief. As usual, Singer, a pastor and a lawyer as well as a writer, nicely balances the crime drama with his exploration of Christian themes--in this case, exploring a man's quest for redemption for past sins and the difficult decisions he must make when confronted with a choice between keeping his family safe and bringing a killer to justice. Singer's many fans will be lining up to read this one.--Booklist

From the Back Cover

"A new legal thriller from a master of his craft"Landon Reed is an ex-quarterback convicted of organizing a point-shaving scheme. In prison, he finds forgiveness and faith. After prison, he earns a law degree and longs for an opportunity to prove his loyalty and worth.Be careful what you ask for.Harry McNaughten is one of the founding partners of McNaughten and Clay--and the only attorney willing to take a chance employing an ex-con turned lawyer. Though Landon initially questions Harry's ethics and methods, the crusty old lawyer wins Landon's respect with his brilliant legal mind and knack for winning. But as the two lawyers prepare for a high-profile murder case, Harry is gunned down in what appears to be a random mugging. Weeks later, the firm's leased jet explodes over Chesapeake Bay, and two more McNaughten and Clay lawyers are eulogized. Somebody has a vendetta against the firm, and Landon, his family, and his sole remaining partner are the final targets.As Landon struggles to keep the firm together, he can't help but wonder: Is the plot related to a shady case from McNaughten and Clay's past, or to the murder trial he's neck-deep in now? And will he survive long enough to find out?

HASH(0x88afc75c) out of 5 stars A first rate white collar crime plot. 13 Sept. 2013
By Larry J. Allred - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
At first blush, it seems like Mitch Rapp meets a John Gresham hero. Singer does a great job in developing an intricate plot that really picks up steam as you turn the pages. One thing I enjoyed was the total lack of profanity. That was truly refreshing!

HASH(0x88f931e0) out of 5 stars Maybe Singer's Best 17 Jun. 2013
By Joshua Olds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
QUICK HIT - I'd call Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales Singer's best...but that wouldn't really do the rest of his books justice.

Landon Reed is finally getting his second chance in life. As a college quarterback, he was found guilty (and rightfully so) in a point-shaving scandal that landed him in jail. But prison didn't make Landon callous. Instead, the former football star found faith and forgiveness, completing his sentence and beginning a new mission in life. He marries his longtime girlfriend and mother of his child, finishes law school, and stumbles into a job with the notorious Harry McNaughten. McNaughten is equally contrasting amounts of hard-nosed cuss and soft old codger, the only one willing to hire an ex-con lawyer but also willing to put Landon through the ringer.

Things heat up quickly as McNaughten and Landon dive into a murder case that has more than its share of intrigue. Elias King had once been a high profile prosecutor, but after a turbulent political and legal season, he found himself a defense attorney at a less-glamorous but still very much respected law firm. Then came the accusations of insider trading. Then came the dead body of his lover, Erica Jensen. Then came the phone call to Harry McNaughten to take the case. And everything that follows is a whirlwind ride.

Over the years, Randy Singer has impressed me with the balance of complexity and readability in his novels. There are always five things going on, but the reader is never lost. And somehow everything twists around either thematically or structurally to tie together into one cohesive story. On one hand, you could call Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales the redemption story of Landon Reed; on other hand, you could call it a legal thriller about an unsolved murder; or, if you explore Landon's wife's storyline, it's about a journalist who gets the scoop of a lifetime; or maybe it's about the complex side character Sean Phoenix. To almost any other author, such a collection of storylines would produce a bulky and disjointed novel. But to Randy Singer, it's just another great way of discussing a whole host of tough, relevant issues while telling a deep, multi-layered thriller combined with a whodunit mystery that'll keep readers guessing until the end.

Another area where Singer consistently impresses me is in the area of theme. Storytelling is one of the best ways to convey truth, especially when it comes to sensitive and complex issues. Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales is no exception to the trend. Central to the novel is the theme of forgiveness and whether or not those disgraced deserve a shot at redemption. Singer also dives into the shady world of "off the books" intelligence gathering by private and government agencies, raising moral dilemmas and pertinent questions. Nor does he neglect the personal side of things. Landon and his wife must not only adjust to his life outside of jail, but also their lives as working parents with a daughter.

In short, this is a book you will enjoy, whether you typically like "legal thrillers" or not. The characters are believable, likable, and real; the story palpable, complex, and intense; the theme thought-provoking, substantive, and engaging--I'd call Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales Singer's best...but that wouldn't really do the rest of his books justice.

HASH(0x89b84588) out of 5 stars Another riveting legal thriller from Randy Singer 9 May 2013
By Mocha with Linda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Randy Singer is on my short list of must-read authors. His legal thrillers are riveting and thought-provoking and among the best books I've read in any genre. I knew from the title and the blurb that Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales would pack plenty of punch and Singer delivers in spades! Intriguing characters and an intricate plot riveted me from the opening pages and I was oblivious to all around me as I read. "Fascinating" doesn't even begin to do justice as a descriptor of this novel. It is prudent to read it as carefully as one might pore over a legal brief, as Singer adeptly weaves seemingly innocuous details into the story that become "aha moments" once the story is completed. The ending was perfection, and the epilogue. . .well, when you read it you'll know why I consider Randy Singer to be such a brilliant author! Don't miss this brand-new release!

HASH(0x8974c0f0) out of 5 stars The Randy-Man Can, Because Singer Tells No Bad Tales! 2 Jun. 2013
By Wolfe Moffat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you know anything about Randy Singer and John Grisham, you know that both of them are lawyers, and they both happen to be authors. And they both write rather well. Oh, but unfortunately for Grisham, he's written a few bad ones. Hey, I recently read "The Racketeer," and it was plain awful! But I just read Randy Singer's latest, "Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales," and while he might not be where Grisham is today, Singer has yet to tell a bad tale! I know, because I've read all of 'em! And this is a good one!

Landon Reed went to prison for pulling a stunt while playing college football. It cost him his athletic career. But Landon still loved the law, and finished getting his degree, and his desire is to be the best lawyer that God has appointed him to be. But he has to be trusted, and after going through a trial or two after his prison term, Harry McNaughten wants Landon to work for McNaughten and Clay. Landon is hired, and he's working under Harry. And Landon, with his wife and little girl, is thrown into a big-time murder case. Without warning, Harry is murdered.

So, without warning, things get crazy, and without another warning, the firm's jet explodes, with two other associates apparently not surviving as well. Landon's wife, Kerri, is a nervous wreck, but this family also has faith. And they have a big buddy who isn't afraid of attacking a blitz when he sees one coming. But suddenly, Landon has this case all to himself. Will he wind up dead?

Randy Singer has never been afraid of the what-if's in life, and it shows in his writing. He's consistent, and he's among the best. Now, John Grisham may have a few more books on Randy, but compared to "The Racketeer," Randy comes out looking a lot better than old Johnny-Boy! But that's because there's a man out there named Randy Singer, and the Randy-Man has delivered every time!

HASH(0x895b93b4) out of 5 stars Exciting legal thriller 5 May 2013
By a christian book fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read all of Randy Singer's legal thrillers and loved them all. So I was anxiously waiting his newest and downloaded it immediately on my Kindle. This one does not disappoint. Best one yet. Loved seeing Mitchell again from a previous series. Kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way thru and came to a satisfying end.
