Publisher's Summary

A beautiful, young, rising star in the country music world is found dead in a Nashville hotel room.

The owner of her record company is charged with murder.

In the seventh installment of Scott Pratt's best-selling Joe Dillard series, Dillard is hired to travel to Tennessee's capital city to defend Paul Milius, a record company baron accused of strangling Kasey Cartwright, his label's young star. Dillard navigates Nashville's unfamiliar legal system and the world of country music in search of the truth, but he soon finds himself confronted with a web of lies so masterfully woven that he fears he may never find any answers. As the trial begins and the tension mounts, Dillard fears that not only will his client be wrongfully convicted but that Dillard himself may not survive.

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

    Story
    "I hope there will be more of this series."

    A Crime of Passion is Book 7 in Scott Pratt's extraordinary Joe Dillard series (yes, I know that Audible lists it as Book 6, but that is not correct). I hope it is not the final Joe Dillard novel. Scott Pratt is now on my short list of favorite mystery/thriller authors and is #1 in the legal thriller category. Tim Campbell flawlessly narrates all of the novels in the series.

    Highly recommended, but read the series in order.

    "Good solid story, fine narration"

    Kept my attention and I stayed in the driveway more than once to finish a chapter. That's all I ask

    "Whatever happened to "Narration"?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, for the ones who can tolerate the "performance".


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Nothing.


    What didn’t you like about Tim Campbell’s performance?

    Too much "performance", which is now metamorphosing into "dramatisation". I understand that I am probably in the minority here, but for those who like drama, there are plenty of wonderfully dramatised books available from Audible.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, depending on who directs.

    "Good Legal Thriller"

    I am in the process of listening to the Joe Dillard series. When one ends I immediately pull up the next one and begin listening to it. I really enjoy the character development. Joe and Caroline have a good marriage and face a terrible battle-Caroline's cancer. The series has also included their children growing up and becoming independent.
    This particular book is the story of Joe defending a not particularly nice person and of course lots of unexpected twists and turns. I enjoyed the story and how Joe dealt with his client.

    "Absurd ending"

    Ending out of keeping with previous books. No spoilers but totally disappointing. I have enjoyed previous books in the series, and while I enjoyed the book, I felt as if the author just did not want to bother wrapping it up with a reasonable and believable ending.

    "Was not expecting this ending"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend the entire Joe Dillard series to all. It is such a good book and the characters are intense. Scott Pratt has invested so much into these characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Crime of Passion?

    It is hard to pick one. But, Lana is captivating. Her evil ways just carries and right from the jump you know you want her to get hers.


    What about Tim Campbell’s performance did you like?

    Tim gets better with each book. He is Joe Dillard; the voice, the inflection, everything. He is this character.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    In reality this series would make a great movie series. Tag line would be Never trust a pretty country singer. Sorry Taylor Swift.


    Any additional comments?

    I am curious as to how many books will be in this series. This cannot be the last one due to so many open questions. I cannot wait for Book 8
