False Oath: The Nate Shepherd Legal Thriller Series, Book 4 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Two brothers. One accused of a horrific crime. The other chasing a golden future. And an attorney navigating between both.
Fresh off his latest case, Attorney Nate Shepherd takes in some local high school football, hoping that a Friday night under the lights will give him a chance to relax with his family. It does - until the quarterback’s brother is arrested in the middle of the game.
Nate jumps in to represent the brother, who stands accused of a crime far worse than anyone imagined. As the internet rains fury down on his new client and a merciless prosecutor maneuvers to put the young man away, Nate scrambles to find out what happened and why. But no one, anywhere, seems to be telling him the whole truth.
Nate struggles to build a defense, unwinding a spool of facts that threatens to spill over into his own family’s lives. And with each revelation, the conflict grows until a new danger arises.
Will their secrets tear the brothers apart?
False Oath is the fourth book in the gripping Nate Shepherd Legal Thriller series. If you like razor-sharp dialogue, iron-willed characters, and slippery moral quandaries, then you’ll love Michael Stagg’s fierce courtroom drama.

First, there was an incident that the opposing counsel raised questioning a witness during the trial that had no foundation; even the witness asked the attorney during questioning how she could know that? Indeed, how? According to the recounting, the situation involved only three people, one of whom was dead, one who was on trial, and the witness testifying. As described, it was impossible for the the attorney to know any of the details, yet she quoted exact dialog. The author never explains how this was possible.
A large part of the defense concerned trajectories, yet the angle of penetration of the wound was never even mentioned. This would have been a material issue, even if the angle had not been determined, that would have reinforced the defense.
The entire case for the defense rested on the residence of the defendant and his brother, the nationally ranked high school quarterback. It is simply not credible that no one noticed that he wasn't living in the right state. Certainly his father knew, and that aspect was never addressed, even if it were that his father was complicit in this as well.
Lastly, a top ten nationally ranked quarterback would be besieged with schools, agents, influencers, hangers-on, ad infinitum, yet this aspect of the situation is treated with such lack of verisimilitude that the story suffers. Of course, that makes the story more messy and harder to write, but to ignore this strains credulity.
All in all, a good read, but there are noticeable lapses.
