Dead Lawyers Don't Lie Book Review and Giveaway

A mysterious killer who calls himself The Artist is assassinating wealthy lawyers in San Francisco. When war veteran Jake Wolfe accidentally takes his picture during a murder, The Artist adds Jake to his kill list and he becomes a target in a deadly game of cat and mouse that only one of them can survive. How far would you go to protect your loved ones from a killer? Jake wants to leave his top secret, violent past life behind him. But the reluctant, flawed hero can't ignore his duty and his personal moral compass.

This gripping thriller is full of suspense, plot twists and surprises. It features a cast of interesting characters, including several strong-willed women, two wise-cracking San Francisco Police Homicide Inspectors, one highly intelligent dog, and a philosophical killer who shares Jake's admiration for Van Gogh paintings but still plans to kill him anyway. As Jake gets closer to unraveling a merciless conspiracy, his life gets turned upside down and the danger level increases, adding to the growing suspense. This entertaining page-turner starts out as a murder mystery and then shifts gears into a high-speed action thriller that takes you on a roller-coaster ride to the riveting ending. A good read for those who enjoy mysteries, suspense, action and adventure, vigilante justice, unique characters, witty dialogue and a little romance too. Now on sale in over a dozen countries around the world. Be the first among your friends to read it.

Fans of new Kindle Unlimited novels will be happy to know this book is one of the best financial thrillers in kindle unlimited books.

My thoughts:

Jake witnessed a murder and caught a photo of the murderer.  Because of the photos, he's thrust into a game of cat and mouse with a paid assassin. Can Jake and Cody discover who is murdering lawyers before the assassin finds them?

This story is full of twists and turns, and manages to be serious and fun at the same time.

It's an action packed thriller, but it was definitely a long book. I feel like it could have been trimmed some and not lose anything from the story. However, I could very much tell that Mark Nolan is from the Bay Area! So many of the phrases that he wrote were identical to the way that I would say the same thing! It made the story very fun for me to read.

 "I wish I could have given this book 10 stars--it is that good. If you like playing detective, you will love this book." 

 "This is the best action mystery book I have read. Mark Nolan is a hidden treasure."

  1. It sounds like this was a really good action packed story, and the only thing you would've wanted was for it to be a little bit shorter. Thanks for introducing it to me!
