Description of this Book

The start of a fantastic new legal series, perfect for fans of Robert Galbraith, written by an acclaimed QC Elliot Rook is the epitome of a highly successful, old-Etonian QC. Or so everyone believes. In fact, he is an ex-petty criminal with a past that he has spent decades keeping secret. Until now... An unidentified young woman of Middle Eastern origin has been found murdered on the outskirts of Rook's home town. Billy Barber - a violent football hooligan and white-supremacist - is accused of her murder. Barber insists that Rook must defend him. If Rook refuses, Barber will expose him, bringing crashing to the ground the life and career that Rook has spent his life building. The truth is there for the finding. But at what cost?

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review A brilliant read ... I really loved this one. Both life in the London chambers and the Nottingham background of the crimes and QC himself are very well researched and the characters brilliantly drawn * Tablet * The start of a very promising new legal series -- Choice Magazine [A] thriller I found hard to put down - a seemingly respected barrister who has it all is, in fact, an utter fraud * Guardian *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)

Born the son of a coal miner, Gary Bell QC left school without any qualifications and drifted in and out of a number of jobs before being convicted of fraud aged eighteen. He then spent two years penniless and homeless in Europe, before returning to his studies aged twenty-one and, after seven years, became a barrister. He has spent the last thirty years at the Bar, becoming a QC in 2012. He specialises in defending major fraud and murder trials.
