"Reasonable Fear" is the fourth of the acclaimed Joe Dillard series offered by Scott Pratt. The series has encompassed legal thriller, legal mystery, and legal suspense, and has been favorably compared to the master, John Grisham. In this novel, Joe Dillard has become the district attorney in Northeast Tennessee and is confronted with the most difficult case of his life. Three young women have been murdered, and Dillard becomes deeply involved in the case with Sheriff Leon Bates. Dillard soon realizes that he is up against an enemy that he has never before encountered; someone so rich and so powerful that the course of justice could easily be altered by money and politics. When the villains start threatening Dillard's family, he asks himself the most difficult question he has ever faced: "When is it reasonable under the law to kill? What circumstances make it reasonable to use violence to defend one's own family?" Dillard's life, and the lives of his wife and children, will depend on the answer, and on the strength of his character.

The search for that answer leads Dillard and his friend, Sheriff Leon Bates, down a path so dark and so dangerous to a villain so evil, it will change both Joe and Leon forever -- if they manage to survive. "If you like Reacher, the Lincoln Lawyer, Jake Brigance and Paul Madriani, you'll be excited to meet Joe Dillard!" --Amazon Five-Star Review "I predict it won't be long before you see Scott Pratt's name mentioned with Lee Child, Michael Connelly, John Grisham, and Steve Martini when critics talk about legal/crime fiction." --Amazon Five-Star Review "Every bit as good as Grisham! Superb characterization, suspense, drama." --Amazon Five-Star Review "I love the Dillard Series by Scott Pratt. As a retired attorney who practiced transactional law and not civil or criminal litigation, I appreciate the way Scott reveals the tension between defense attorneys and prosecutors, the prejudices of both toward each other, the Judge, and law enforcement." --Amazon Five-Star Review

Since 2008, economic policymakers and researchers have occupied a brave new economic world. Previous consensuses have been upended, former assumptions have been cast into doubt, and new approaches have yet to stand the test of time. Policymakers have been forced to improvise and researchers to rethink basic theory. George Akerlof, Nobel Laureate and one of this volume's editors, compares the crisis to a cat stuck in a tree, afraid to move. In April 2013, the International Monetary Fund brought together leading economists and economic policymakers to discuss the slowly emerging contours of the macroeconomic future. This book offers their combined insights.The editors and contributors -- who include the Nobel Laureate and bestselling author Joseph Stiglitz, Federal Reserve Vice Chair Janet Yellen, and the former Governor of the Bank of Israel Stanley Fischer -- consider the lessons learned from the crisis and its aftermath. They discuss, among other things, post-crisis questions about the traditional policy focus on inflation; macroprudential tools (which focus on the stability of the entire financial system rather than of individual firms) and their effectiveness; fiscal stimulus, public debt, and fiscal consolidation; and exchange rate arrangements.
