Article Body:
Proof Evident is a newly released crime fiction novel by lawyer and
controversial psychologist, John Dicke. The story line is based around a
criminal case for Judge Avery Jackson who coldly murdered Sheriff
Hardacre during his speech to 150 city officials. The problem is, Mr.
Jackson has no memory of the event at all…

Jack Maine leaves the public service and starts up a private practice
with the assistance of his talented wife while taking on this difficult
and seemingly doomed case. His dedicated and patient staff includes a
master investigator and a phenomenal young novice lawyer – both of whom
are fully aware they may not see a paycheck for some time. Jack’s nemesis
is the quick-witted and well-financed defense team led by an ambitious
attorney that is set on becoming "seen". Death follows this case
everywhere. Just when the lawyers feel they are getting somewhere -
people start dropping like flies. Soon a CIA scandal is discovered that
threatens national security, which powerful people are desperate to
cover-up; meanwhile a drug ring threatens to take control of every aspect
of the community.

John Dicke addresses the issue of pleading Not Guilty By Reason of
Insanity, which is a much larger issue than I had previously been aware
of. Even mentioning the plea will turn off a jury, who are hardened by
the preconception that the plea is repeatedly used to falsely gain
sympathy, and therefore, receive a lighter sentence for a crime they are
guilty of committing.

John also shows the intense stress of an exhausting case, which can be
exhilarating to intrigued lawyers bored with the mundane courthouse
activities, and the temptations that could destroy those that have more
desire than sense. Mr. Dicke uses elements of real life, historical
events – including the government scandal.

It is my opinion that Proof Evident is a book for deep-thinking
individuals who favor courtroom drama - because there is a lot of it. I
found myself wanting to skip through those sections, but had I done so
the ending would have left me shocked and baffled. I loved the eventful
conclusion and was surprised by a few characters as well. Overall, I
think John Dicke has created an interesting novel that deserves to be
given a chance by readers of this genre.
