The Book

Deadly Proof

In the biggest case of her career, attorney Kate Sullivan is tapped as lead counsel to take on Mason Pharmaceutical because of a corporate cover-up related to its newest drug. After a whistleblower dies, Kate knows the stakes are much higher than her other lawsuits.

Former Army Ranger turned private investigator Landon James is still haunted by mistakes made while serving overseas. Trying to forget the past, he is hired by Kate to look into the whistleblower’s allegation and soon suspects that the company may be engaging in a dangerous game for profit. He also soon finds himself falling for this passionate and earnest young lawyer. 

Determined not to make the same mistakes, he’s intent on keeping Kate safe, but as the case deepens, it appears someone is willing to risk everything–even murder–to keep the case from going to trial.

What was the working title?

Strict Liability

Describe your book in 5 adjectives

Suspenseful, fast-paced, smart, realistic, surprising

Which character took you by surprise?

Ethan Black. He’s a very complicated guy.

What was the latest you stayed up working on this story?

Actually not very late, but I have worked on it as early as five a.m. I’m a morning person.

Which character’s name was the hardest to choose? Why?

Adam. His name was actually something else, and then I realized I had way too many “E” names. I didn’t want to have confusion. It took me a while to find the right name because he was entrenched in my mind as another name.

What’s something that didn’t make it into the final copy?

There was a kidnapping scene that got cut and changed, but all for the better! I’m very happy with how it turned out.

  1. Enjoyed the interview. I love Rachel’s books. Don’t include me in the drawing. I already gave a copy.

  2. This Present Darkness was my first CF read too!

  3. I read on the book cover the comparison to John Grisham’s books. I have read quite a few of his so this should be another book I’d enjoy. I don’t like a steady diet of suspense but do enjoy them as an occasional treat. Thanks for the giveaway of Deadly Proof. Rachel Dylan is an author I’m not familiar with.

  4. I have never read anything by Rachel and would love to win a copy of her book. Thanks for the giveaway. I am Caucasian but I have some German in my distant background. Merry Christmas! 🎁🎄

    I’m Caucasian–my maternal grandparents were both from Switzerland, and my paternal grandparents were from Sweden.

  6. Rachel’s book sounds like one I would enjoy reading. I am English, Irish, Dutch and German.
