Publisher's Summary

A family of four is slaughtered in rural Tennessee. Two weeks later, a retired high school principal and his wife are brutally slain. Two Satan-worshipping teens stand accused. It's up to prosecutor Joe Dillard to convict them. A former defense attorney who spent way too much time defending people he knew were guilty, Joe is determined to win this case to atone for his past.

But an evil young woman named Natasha is responsible for the slayings and Joe knows it. Natasha is walking around free because the two boys who have been arrested are too terrified to implicate her. Now Joe must risk everything - including his family's safety and his own life - to bring an evil murderer to justice.

    "OK, I'm hooked on Joe Dillard..."

    ...but the narrator is still pretty bad. Here's a case where the narrator does the book no favors...but he's not bad enough to keep me from the rest of the series.

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

    Story
    "A very dark thriller!"

    In good faith is Book 2 of the Joe Dillard series. Joe has given up private practice and is now an assistant district attorney. This novel is about several especially gruesome murders by three devil worshipers the leader of whom is a beautiful young redhead woman. The setting is northeastern Tennessee. A subtext of the story is a serious health issue with Joe's wife Caroline.

    I could have selected 5 stars rather than 4; it was a close call.

    "Outstanding legal fiction"

    If you love legal fiction as I do, you will love Joe Dillard. These are well-thought-out books, and I encourage anyone interested in this genre to read the whole series!

    "GOOD, NOT GREAT"

    My first listen to this legal thriller series. It was good enough that I will try Book 2 in the series.

    Story
    "Finally, a murder mystery without foul language"
    Would you consider the audio edition of In Good Faith to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read, I listened.


    What other book might you compare In Good Faith to and why?

    An Innocent Client, also by Scott Pratt. It was a pleasure to listen to a great story without having to endure foul language, which I don't want in my brain and try to avoid.


    What about Tim Campbell’s performance did you like?

    He read smoothly and fluently with no distracting mismatched voices, he just brought me right into the story.

    Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.

    Story
    "A Gooey Dollop Of Para Atop The Normal Here…"

    Apparently Scott Pratt's got some sort or denominational religious angst going on in his head… It apparently developed since his excellent earlier novel, "An Innocent Client" (which should be read first BTW). And here he swirls it around and around in a mishmash of mystical versus spiritual plot whorls.

    I don't like it when an author relies upon ghosts, mystics, or satan/gods to solve his/her story difficulties. Pratt does that here. Maybe you'll enjoy it, since he's a good craftsman and Tim Campbell's a fine reader. Don't know whether I'll try the next in this series… I like my legal thrillers to be more "normal" courtroom matches without a gooey side-order of the "para'.

    Story
    "Enticing second book"
    What made the experience of listening to In Good Faith the most enjoyable?

    It ramps up the intensity from the previous book.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The murderers in this are crazy. It makes for such a good read.


    What does Tim Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is Joe Dillard's, a strong and yet kind voice.


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

    Law never ends.


    Any additional comments?

    Tim Campbell does a great job, but sometimes his voices do not sound different for each character. It becomes difficult to listen to a conversation without he/she said.

    "Another good one from Scott Pratt"

    I like the way this author breathes life into his characters and writes a good story that keeps your interest from the beginning. I have read the first in this series and plan to read all of them.

    Story
    "Another good one"

    This one caught me off guard and I really like the change.

    The highlights; No spoilers here. The story takes a right turn from the first one. Normally it's not required to read the previous books when it comes to legal thrillers as they seldom build on each other...this is the exception.

    Now for the 2 likes and 2 dislikes

    First, as I mentioned above, I like the plot change this book took from the last one. This was an unexpected change that most writers don't have the balls to pull as not all readers may like it. This reader did, a lot!

    Second, I really like the multiple plot lines that wove through the story. Too often authors center a legal thriller around one case & that's what the world revolves around. Seldom is life that simple

    Dislikes
    1- it wasn't easy to name two dislikes about this book as it is very well written. The characters are built up well with their own flaws and strengths. The one thing that would improve the book is making the book longer by adding in more details. There are more then a few times when we are told the end result when I am very interested in the journey. These books are about 1/3-1/2 the size of, say, a John Grisham novel. Plenty of room to expand. Sure I could make it through in one day but I would like extra

    2) I really can't think of a second thing that would improve the book, it's that good
