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 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

Another Home Run By Scott Pratt

What an excellent job Scott Pratt did in writing this series. Every book has had a riveting plot and the characters blend seamlessly from novel to novel. I have a hard time finding a stopping place in all the books because they never cease to hold my attention.

Riveting

The storyline continues without any mediocre details. The narrator flows into each character in a way that allows my imagination to picture the character. This story was not predictable.

Fell flat at the end

Ending not within the realm of the plausible like the first six books. Still love the series and will read the next

A Crime of Passion

Very good. Everyone loses. So true in real life when hatred rules ones heart and ambition. Thank-you for another thought provoking story.

Too dumb for words

What disappointed you about A Crime of Passion?

This down home stuff is interesting, but this conclusion begs a slap in the face.

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.
