Killer Lawyer is the latest addition to the Jake Wolfe series by Mark Nolan. It is an incredibly clever, intense, gripping and suspenseful read. This has a complex, multi-layered storyline- with lots of action, drama, intrigue, humour, danger, tension, and mystery.
We once again team up with former marine Jake Wolfe and follow his lead, as all the excitement unfolds. Jake has earned his law degree, and has also been recruited to undertake dangerous, covert assignments on behalf of the gov

The townsfolk are all on edge as there is a killer going around town popping people between the eyes. This killer has no MO I guess that is why he is being called the Random Killer.

The way I see a typical day for this guy is that he wakes up thinking this is a good day to die. So he heads out to town looks around at all the people wondering the streets. Maybe they are going to work, to school, to the mall, out to eat, to check the mailbox or maybe they are just out for a nice stroll on a beauti

Another memorable story in this fabulous series. Mark Nolan certainly knows how to write an exciting and tense Action Thriller. I quite enjoy a plot that I can’t guess what’s going to happen, and there are a couple of Wow moments in this story that I wasn’t expecting. This is the third book in the series and I’ve loved each one of them. Jack Wolfe is a great character.
Jake Wolfe may have become a qualified lawyer, but he didn’t seem to have it in him yet to settle down into a normal lifestyle. I

I highly recommend this series, they will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat until the end. In this book there is a serial killer killing random people but what will happen when he kills one of Jake's friends? This is where the story becomes about revenge and survival. I enjoyed watching the development of these characters especially Jake and I love his side kick dog. I had a hard time putting their story down, it is worth picking up just for the action thriller journey.

Killer Lawyer (Jake Wolfe Book 3) by Mark Nolan was a pretty okay read that has many heart stopping moments.

My first read by this author, I didn't know what I was getting into. I will say that this book is part of a series, and though this book can be read as a standalone, I did find that there were many things, in regards to character background, development, and past plots; that at times made me feel lost. So I highly suggest reading the other books before this one.

As much as I enjoyed this

Jake Wolfe is a highly trained ex-Marine who worked with the CIA in special ops. He lives with Cody, his adopted K-9 ex-war dog, on the Far Niente. He is seeing Sarah, the veterinarian, but he continues to get "the call," which usually involve ... distractions.

My third book in the series, I fell in love with Cody the first book of the series. This time a serial killer hits way too close to home when his sweet senior neighbor is the next victim of a serial killer. The murders are so random that l

Killer Lawyer is the third book in Mark Nolan’s Jake Wolfe series and what a story it is! I have to say that the writing gets better and better with each book! The writer is a master of intense action thrillers and you are guaranteed a head spinning rollercoaster ride! You could read the story as a standalone but you would miss out of having met Jake and Cody and Sarah (Jake’s girlfriend who is a veterinarian) and seen how they began!

Jake Wolfe is a lawyer. At least that is what it says on his business cards. He doesn't have any paying clients but he wouldn't have time for them anyway. Actually he is one of those rogue operators authors write about who get called on by various Alphabet agencies that make sure they can disavow any knowledge if the mission goes south. What really makes Jake stand out from the others, is his dog, Cody. Jake was a military dog trainer and Cody saw lots of combat as a military dog. Back in the St ...more

Killer Lawyer by Mark Nolan is a five star novel. This is the third book in the Jake Wolfe series and it will keep you on the edge of your seat. Even though most series are best read in order, this one is ok to be read as a stand alone. The way the author is able to reel in the reader is fantastic. I could not put this book down. Jake is a lawyer, but really doesn’t have many clients. He got his degree online and barely passed the bar exam. He likes to have this professional coverup because he i ...more

Killer Lawyer by Mark Nolan is a phenomenal suspense read that had me sitting on the edge of my seat from beginning until end. It’s the third book in the Jake Wolfe series and my first book by this author, but it certainly won’t be my last. I can honestly say that I had no problems jumping into this book having not read the first two. The author provided plenty of detail, so I had no issue piecing everything together.

Killer Lawyer is the third book in the Jake Wolfe series by Mark Nolan. While it could probably be read as a stand alone book, I recommend reading the first two books. Not only because they have overlapping characters, and you will have a better understanding of their dynamics, but because they are good! Jake is a complex character, he is a lawyer by day, and an assassin by night. He works with the US Marshals, and also alongside the SFPD. He also is a retired marine, and K9 handler, so he and h ...more

In this installment, Killer Lawyer Mark Nolan has hit it out of the park again. This is the third book and it has just as much action, mystery, suspense, drama, and humor as the first two books. I love the characters that Mark Nolan writes about Jake and Cody. Now one would think that Jack and Cody are male characters, you would be half right Jake is a man and Cody is his ex-military dog that goes with him everywhere. That is what I love about the Jack Wolfe stories the fact that there is a huma ...more

I am a sucker for a good thriller book.  I am a sucker for dogs. I am a sucker for a man in uniform.  Put the three of them together and I am practically head over heels.  Mark Nolan has crafted yet another amazing book with Jake Wolfe and his dog.

Mark Nolan just gets better and better with each Jake Wolfe story he produces. There is action, suspense and even a little romance in this story. Nolan takes us into the mind of not only Jake but also the psychopath killer.

This is book three in the Jake Wolfe series. It is best read in order because many of the characters carry over from the first two books. After reading the first two books waiting for the next story was not easy to do. Reading this story was like welcoming back an old friend.

Jack Wolfe and Cody are back in another exciting story where they both have to deal with their personal demons while trying to run down a killer terrorizing San Francisco in a series of random shootings. Jake's attitude and mouth keep him in trouble with the authorities he has to work with, his friends and his family. As in the earlier books in this series, the interactions between Jake and his dog set the standard for respect and love. The writing isn't as smooth as Nolan's earlier books, but b ...more

Killer Lawyer by Mark Nolan is the third book in the Jake Wolfe series. This book can be read as a stand-alone however it is the return of the main character so it would be beneficial to read the other books first.

This is the third book in the Jake Wolfe series and while story threads and characters are carried over from the previous books, I think everything is pretty well explained as they are introduced. Even though it could be read as a stand-alone, I think it's a better reading experience to read in order.

This story is told in multiple POVs (yes, I count the dog's thoughts as a POV) and there are several things going on at the same time. There are lots of characters in this mystery/suspense and the s

Third in this excellent series, this is another good read. Mark Nolan has created some fascinating characters and I can't get enough of the partnership between Jake and Cody.
If this is your first read you will enjoy meeting them.

A lot going on with sub plots too, we are taken on a suspenseful ride as the pair aim to capture the bad guys. With many twists and turns it keeps the reader turning the pages. As with the first two there is humour, crime, adventure, romance and more.

Hope there is more

I didn't think the "Jake Wolfe" books could get any better than the first two but, if possible, I would have given this one 6 stars. While there were less bullets and mayhem there were more personal touches to the characters which leads me to believe we're going to get many more stories in this series and I love it. The love between Jake and his dog, Cody, is so touching and from my knowledge of dogs who've been trained for war, a handler and his dog have this special relationship. I'm so lookin ...more

Mark Nolan has created superb characters in Killer Lawyer. Jake Wolfe is a vet who has worked with the CIA and now is after a serial killer. With his best friend, who happens to be of the canine species, he is investigating a murderer who hit too close to home. Criminals should never target friends of a Vet! This book made me laugh out loud and later made me cry. A veteran and a dog, a perfect combination!

Slow read

It was a difficult read. I skipped many chapters to get to an ending. It was difficult to ascertain if the main character was a super human, or the author was a bit over-kill with the MC’s exploits! The dog was the only bright spot! The ending was more comical than a plot resolution! A majority of the last 15 chapters were too much fantasy - not very believable!
