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.
I'm a sucker for legal fiction. So Randy Singer's newest was pretty high on my list. The basic premise of Dead Lawyers Don't Tell Tales is pretty convoluted which makes the story that much more fascinating.
Landon Reed is a shamed and just fresh from incarceration former quarterback turned lawyer. He immediately begins to make amends and tries to get his life on the right track. A crusty, seasoned lawyer takes Landon under his wing and things get really interesting after Landon's mentor is killed. In the meantime Landon's wife is getting insider information from a secret source that seems to have access to any secret.
