    I wish more people knew about Pratt. Joe Dillard is one of my favorite characters. Pratt writes with such ease. It has never taken me more than a day to finish one of his books. Dillard goes against a mean ass judge hunting down a mean ass serial killer. We learn the connection midway through this one. I love Dillard's family. The side story of his wife's ongoing battle with cancer, his son, his German Shepherd (you had me a woof)...and I of course like his cohort, Leon.

This is seemingly the last of the Dillard series as Pratt has penned a new series with Darren Street, which I just ordered!! I'll embrace it because Pratt can do no wrong. I will be leaving this book in the little mini free library box on the street corner so I can spread the goodness.

    Have to say that I've enjoyed all of Pratt's novels including this one. I've enjoyed the basic storyline as well as the family situations. I would have given this 5 stars except for it seemed a little over-the-top at times, other than that just a great, exciting story. Not much lawyering in this one. More action and suspense and trying to figure out whodunit.

    Another great story from Scott Pratt I would recommend this work of art to all who believe in justice for all. Believable characters who become your family.

    I really enjoyed this book a lot. Is the story very mysterious? Somewhat. Did I know who is behind it? Pretty much. But I didn't care, I enjoyed the story telling and I think Joe Dillard is a very interesting guy with questionable ethics. Now I'm going to start from the beginning of this series and listen to books 1-7.

    I enjoy this series, particularly as I am an attorney and Mr . Platt gets those pesky legal details correct The plots are plausible and the personal details make this series work. I recommend this author to those looking for a good read .

    Loved this latest installment of the Joe Dillard Series. Author Pratt can't write them fast enough for me. Joe never disappoints. He is such a good person, always risking his own peace of mind and body to help someone in need. This had a bad-ass bad guy, who committed horrendous crimes, and one of them is in the opening scene. In sexual abuse scenes, author Pratt isn't descriptive to the point that it turns your stomach to read it, but you get what's going on.

As a loyal reader of the series, I am totally invested in the Dillard family characters, and I hope Pratt is working on book 9. We just need to know how (or should I say "if") his wife beats her cancer, which doesn't look good based on what went on in this installment. We also care about his son Jack and his girlfriend Charlie, and other members of Joe's family who have stepped in to help with Caroline (the cancer victim) and Joe, to keep his law practice running. Loved it and look forward to anything this author writes. (Note: I am admittedly stingy with 5-star ratings, (this is as close as it gets) as I feel they have to be an exceptional, unique, well researched, and artistically crafted piece of work to earn that 5 stars.)

    Eh. This one went off the rails for me. Very little courtroom drama. Joe Dillard suddenly morphed into Harry Bosch which didn't make sense to me. The ending felt forced and unrealistic. I hope Scott Pratt returns to the courtroom.

    Scott has done it once again! Another great legal thriller. Joe Dillard is always in the middle of a hairy situation and uses legal savvy, brute force,cunning and his good buddy to help him save the day. I have been waiting to read this book and have not been disappointed

    Definitely didnt want to see this series end. This book I couldnt put down and read within 24 hours of starting it. Joe Dillard is an awesome character and this series turned boring court stuff into interesting side stories throughout.

    I have read the first 8 books of the Joe Dillard series, and outside of Conflict of Interest (not a bad read, but not as fast paced and entertaining as the others), I loved them all, until now. Sadly I really loved the majority of Judgment Cometh, it was a fast paced, entertaining page turner, though the crime was more gory than I typically like. I thought the only real drawback to the flow of the story was the ongoing issues of Dillard’s wife, who has had cancer through out the series.

I thought the only real drawback to the flow of the story was the ongoing issues of Dillard’s wife, who has had cancer through out the series. I don’t mean to be heartless, and I do have sympathy for the dread and pain this family is in, but in most of the books it doesn’t add anything necessary to the main plot of the story. I feel that in many cases it actually disrupts the progress of the novels. If its purpose is to show Dillard’s strong family ties/love, that was well expressed in the first two novels. Once the cancer went into remission I would have preferred that it been left there, not brought forward time after time, book after book. Toward the end of Judgment Cometh Pratt did use his wife’s extreme illness in a role to present the idea that Dillard may be making bad decisions based on his own emotional turmoil. The resulting effect lead to an ending that dropped my star rating from a four to a three. POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT…. As I stated, I loved this book until the ending. I don’t mind rogue cops, etc. Example Harry Bosch in Michael Connelly’s series is certainly one, but I love the Bosh series. The ending of this book, however, goes to extremes. It was just too much breaking of the rules, which for me, made it unrealistic and disappointing.

If I read a book that I will re-read, I save my pennies and eventually buy it. Caroline has the strength of 20 people, men or women, all of whom are at peak physical condition. Maybe more. A bothersome thought: in at least two books, he reads the newspaper. You will understand when you read this book. Which you must by the way. Never mind, this is explained later. One thing I especially appreciate about this series is the devotion, love, and support the family - including friends who have been drawn into the family - have for each other. This book shows it completely. There is no doubt. Even if you may have thought so before, this book will dispel any lingering incredulity. Even though Joe insists he no longer wishes to practice law, he gets wilier with every book. Any reader of the series will know Joe's best friend is Leon Bates. The hijinks the two of them get into together are legendary. Yes, yes, I know this is fiction. Anyway what they do, together and separately is almost beyond belief, except with them, it is believable.

Of course, Joe would still be standing in the end, though for a while, and just a little, you'd thought otherwise. I didn't care so much for uber intelligent complications as long as I was enjoying myself. Great plots, excellent story telling; though the kindle versions could benefit from some more grammar and spell checks. Scott Pratt, you've earned another follower.

    Caroline, Jack, and Charley are sidelined due to cancer and a car accident, respectively. Joe is hired to represent a drunk, caught with a judge’s dead body in his pickup. But the sheriff who got the confession obtained it illegally. So Joe Dillard does what he does best, defend his client and uncover the miscarriage of justice. At the same time, we follow Joe and Leon as they, with the help of The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, narrow in on the prime suspect in the murder of 4 missing judge Caroline, Jack, and Charley are sidelined due to cancer and a car accident, respectively.

    Scott Pratt and Joe Dillard at their best The 8th Joe Dillard book is about receiving justice just as the series has boasted, however heart as always is love for family and his friends. I have found all Scott Pratt's books riveting and convincing crime does not pay . Life is portrayed as unfair and hurts even the innocence. So realistic...I read each book in the series in less than a day . Raised in Knoxville, I know so many of these places and love how Pratt incorporated them into his books.

    I really have enjoyed Scott Pratt's books, but I'm finding that they are getting away from legal courtroom drama and outsmarting the opponent, to more of a detective book and at times Lawyer Joe Dillard and his friend Sheriff Leon Bates decide the end justifies the means. I'm not so much of a fan for that type of book. I have to admit, the books have been entertaining and fast reads.

    Judgement cometh I choose this rating because the plot and characters were very well throughout and developed. I was very much thinking of not reading this one novel because I had read the prior seven stories and just knew it would be another law novel. And at the time I was tired of all of them. T do believe that waiting as I did was just the thing for me. When I did start reading this Novel I was greatly surprised. I had enjoyed the prior seven, I loved this one. The conclusion was great 👍.😊

    Scott Pratt takes us on another wild ride. I didn’t review the first several Joe Dillard books by Scott Pratt because I couldn’t wait to get to the next one. The hero of these books, Joe Dillard, is an attorney, of all things. Dillard is honest and takes no crap from anyone. In “Judgment Cometh” he goes up against pure evil and the consequences are far reaching. Dillard’s relationship with his family is well written and you feel you know them all well the farther along you read. I highly recommen Scott Pratt takes us on another wild ride.

    Another great read! Keeps you on the edge. Twists and turns build to a crescendo with excellently timed events coming together to conclusion in semi-realistic fashion. Enjoy the breaks into real life challenges of family and friends who support each other through strength and love. Narration gives the dialogue a extra drama and sets the tone. Switching between the audio and reading helped me to continue the story when my eyes couldn’t stay open but my mind needed to finish a chapter.

    Great Legal Thriller Hard to put this book down. A psychopath is killing judges and Joe Dillard is hired to defend the killer. But of course, he isn't REALLY the killer. So, Joe Dillard and his Sheriff buddy, Leon Bates, have to figure out who the REAL killer is. This story has many twists and turns and surprises. Sometimes it is a little unrealistic, but most good legal thrillers are, too. That's what makes them so exciting. This one will keep you turning pages late into the night.

    I really enjoyed this series! I read one of the books, out of order. I enjoyed it so much that I read the entire series. I like Scott's characters, and I find the books to be well written. Joe Dillard is a smart lawyer who is very family oriented - not a perfect family - so they are easy to relate to. I am hoping the series will continue. I would recommend these books to anyone who enjoys reading law and order type books.

    I would give this 3.5 stars if I could. I like Pratt's stories and his characters but this one starts out great but then reads like he was in a hurry to get it done. The courtroom drama was not very dramatic. And some of the characters went above and beyond the type of behavior I have come to expect. I was thinking this might have been the end of the series but I just saw that #9 is on the way,

Love like that surrounds my oldest daughter and her much devoted husband.thanks again Scott see ya later! Liddy You did it again! 4 hours of complete freedom from today's confusion. Scott is one spellbinding author and keeps you waiting for his next one. The characters are like family now. Why not give yourself a mind blowing experience!

    I remember the title as a needle point decoration in the wardens office in Shawshank Redemption. The judgement of something is important to a point and then it can loss it's meaning in a twisted turn of events that compels the reader to become part of the vengeful reactions of characters in the plot. Man I wanted to kill that judge as much his son did,but vengeance is best serve cold as he finds out. Great read thanks Scott.

    Joe Dillard is the man! I really liked the fierce combination of lawyer, Joe Dillard, and sheriff, Leon Bates, throughout the entire 8-book series. The accomplished justice in more unorthodox ways and the reads were exciting. I would love for abound Joe Dillard book in the future.

    Scott Pratt's Joe Dillard series I have read all of this series and I hope to see more. Mr Pratt has the ability to make you feel like you're reading about an old friend. His books include violence, humor and strong family values. I think anyone who wants to read this type of book will enjoy these books. I sincerely recommend them.
