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.

    "Absorbing"

    This is book two of the Joe Dillard series. In this book, Joe has quit his job as a defense attorney and has gone to work as a prosecutor for the State of Tennessee. A family is murdered at a rest stop by two teenagers and their leader, a girl called Natasha. Joe is prosecuting the boys but has been unable to find evidence on Natasha. Apparently, the teenagers are into Satan worship. There are problems in the prosecutor’s office with a possible crooked prosecutor. Meanwhile, on the home front, Carolyn is being treated for breast cancer.

    The book is well written. I enjoy Pratt’s style of writing. He grabs your attention immediately and holds it for the entire book. Pratt is continuing to build his key characters. The plot has some twists to it and the suspense builds throughout the story. I am looking forward to the next installment of the series.

    Tim Campbell does a great job narrating the book. Campbell is a stage actor, opera singer, voice-over artist and audiobook narrator.

    Story
    "The incidents portrayed left me sick to my stomach"

    Every negative stereotype I've ever heard about justice in the south was reinforced in this book: civil servants taking the law into their own hands or looking the other way at illegal activities, sheriffs wielding their own brand of justice and blackmailing and making deals for their own personal benefit, judges ignoring the obvious letter and spirit of the law and using their warped interpretation of it to come up with perverted sentences based on personal inclinations, crime scene evidence being manipulated to favor a false interpretation of events.

    There was a fairly interesting story interwoven among the criminal justice debacles, but my goodness, how can one enjoy it in the midst of all the legal shenanigans? Is this the way things are still done down there?

    I found myself becoming more incensed along the way. I may be incredibly naive, but I love our American system of jurisprudence, and I like to think that justice does prevail most of the time.

    This book reinforces why, even today, I won't drive into the deep South.

    As a final note, because of the insufficiency of the narrator, I had quite a difficult time discerning whom was speaking and had to backup and go over many parts of the dialogue.

    "Supernatural Ruined an Otherwise Good Story"

    This should have been a great book. I don't happen to like Devils goblins and other supernatural forces

    "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.

    Story
    "An Enjoyable Listen"

    I've listen to and enjoyed 8 of Scott Pratt’s stories 6 of which was the Joe Dillard series. His stories grab your attention immediately and hold your interest throughout the novel. Joe Dillard is his own "Jack Reacher" type personality with a little bit of MacGyvver" thrown in for good measure. He'll "get the job done" by any means necessary.

    This novel is about gruesome murders committed by two male devil worshipers lead by a redheaded woman. A family of four is slaughtered in rural Tennessee, and two weeks later, a retired high school principal and his wife are brutally slain. Prosecutor Joe Dillard must risk his own life as well as his family's life to bring the "evil murderer to justice." Joe is determined to win this case as atonement for some of his past wins defending people he knew were guilty. The plot has some twists and turns, and the suspense builds throughout the story.

    If you are looking for interesting stories which has lots of action and are delivered at a pace that does not overwhelm or confuse the listener, the Joe Dillard series 1 thru 6 may be for you. I don't plan to read books 7 and 8. Tim Campbell does a great job narrating the story.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but 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'.
