Publisher's Summary

Landon Reed is an ex-quarterback convicted of organizing a points-shaving scheme. During his time in prison, he found forgiveness and faith and earned his law degree. Now he longs for an opportunity to prove his loyalty and worth. Be careful what you ask for. Harry McNaughton is one of the founding partners of McNaughton & Clay and the only lawyer willing to take a chance employing an ex-con-turned-lawyer. Though Landon initially questions Harry's ethics and methods, it's clear the crusty old lawyer has one of the most brilliant legal minds Landon has ever encountered. The two dive into preparing a defense for one of the highest-profile murder trials Virginia Beach has seen in decades when Harry is gunned down in what appears to be a random mugging. Then two more lawyers are killed when the firm's private jet crashes. Authorities suspect someone has a vendetta against McNaughton & Clay, leaving Landon and the remaining partner as 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 McNaughton & Clay' s past, or to the murder trial he's neck-deep in now? And will he survive long enough to find out?

A great story EXCEPT for all the sexual innuendo.

I really liked this story but got sick really quick of the multiple In detail descriptions of the women and what they were wearing and how the supposedly Christian married man had to really avert his eyes (giving the suggestion of his sexual thoughts/desire toward someone other than his wife over and over ) I wanted to hear a good mystery but feel like I got a boatload of useless sexy details I didn't want. It was embarrassing and had to be turned off at times with kids around and that is just taking it too far! More mystery and less sex please!!!

Good story good book good read

Where does Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very High

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales?

SPOILER ALERT*** When we find out the lawyers allegedly going to die in a plane crash actually had turned the tables on those pursing them. I had thought only one of the two would have been the victim but not the other one.

What about Joey Collins’s performance did you like?

Steady good performance throughout and he changed his voice just enough for the different characters but not outlandish like some other narrators do.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

It's a good exciting tale without profanity and with a Christian element I like.

this is now one of my new favorite books.

I love reading/Listening to a book and trying to see where the author is going. A game of seeing if I may be able to understand what the ending will be before I hit the conclusion. I thought I figured this book out. Was I wrong?! Great story, and I plan to dive into more of Mr. Singers titles.

Very good and clean legal thriller.

I liked this book. It was very good but not great in my opinion. I thought I figured out most of the mystery as I listened to the book but there were a few nice plot twists or surprises for me in the end. I enjoyed that and I enjoyed the lack of profanity, sex, etc. that sometimes derail secular books like this for me. I did question the armed NFL player as a body guard, how dumb can partner in a law firm really be, and thought of a few different defenses that may have worked though I'm not an attorney. In the end, I recommend this book.

A bit slow, but stick with it

Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales to be better than the print version?

I didn't buy the print

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales?

Don't want to be a spoiler, but I'm really into courtroom scenes.

What about Joey Collins’s performance did you like?

He did a good job. The performance parts I didn't like were the Southern accents, just being from the South, its my pet peeve. However, his performance still was good and he did a nice job differentiating between the genders without being too obvious.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really

Any additional comments?

I enjoy the Christian aspect to Randy Singer's novels, to me, they give the reader another layer of reality to think about. I had predicted most of it until the end but there was a little surprise. This book wasn't as good as Singer's novel The Judge, but it was enjoyable. The first three hours are really slow, I was having my doubts if I could stick with it, but it was worth it.
