His first book, An Innocent Client, introduces us to Joe Dillard. Joe is a criminal defense attorney who is somewhat jaded and ready to quit. He would like to find one innocent client to represent though, and Pratt helps him do that in a well written legal thriller. Joe was such a popular character that it was natural to bring him back again...and again...and again. I am looking forward to the seventh Joe Dillard novel, A Crime of Passion, due out later this month.
To those of you who haven't had the pleasure of reading a Scott Pratt book, start with Innocent Client, and I am fairly certain you will be hooked.
