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.
