The story line is based around a criminal case for Judge Avery Jack son who coldly murdered Sheriff Har dacre during his speech to 150 city officials. The problem is, Mr. Jac kson has no memory of the event at all& Jack Maine leaves the public servic e and starts up a private practice with the assistance of his talented wife while taking on this difficul t and seemingly doomed case. His de dicated and patient staff includes a master investigator and a phenome nal young novice lawyer _ both of w hom are fully aware they may not se e a paycheck for some time. Jack_s nemesis is the quick-witted and wel l-financed defense team led by an a mbitious attorney that is set on be coming "seen". Death follows this c ase everywhere. Just when the lawye rs feel they are getting somewhere - people start dropping like flies. Soon a CIA scandal is discovered t hat threatens national security, wh ich powerful people are desperate t o cover-up; meanwhile a drug ring t hreatens to take control of every a spect of the community. John Dicke addresses the issue of p leading Not Guilty By Reason of Ins anity, which is a much larger issue than I had previously been aware o f. Even mentioning the plea will tu rn off a jury, who are hardened by the preconception that the plea is repeatedly used to falsely gain sym pathy, and therefore, receive a lig hter 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 a ctivities, and the temptations that could destroy those that have more desire than sense. Mr. Dicke uses elements of real life, historical e vents _ including the government sc andal. It is my opinion that Proof Evident is a book for deep-thinking indivi duals who favor courtroom drama - b ecause there is a lot of it. I foun d myself wanting to skip through th ose sections, but had I done so the ending would have left me shocked and baffled. I loved the eventful c onclusion and was surprised by a fe w characters as well. Overall, I th ink John Dicke has created an inter esting novel that deserves to be gi ven a chance by readers of this genre. ISBN#: 0-9764981-5-4 Author: John Dicke Publisher: Synergy Books
