A Best Defence novel
Blood is thicker than water - but it’s not as hard as cash. The trial of Robbie Munro’s life: one month to prove he’s fit to be a father. No problem. Apart, that is, from the small matter of a double-murder in which Robbie’s landlord, Jake Turpie, is implicated. Psycho-Jake demands Robbie’s undivided attention and is prepared to throw money at the defence - along with some decidedly dodgy evidence. Robbie has a choice: look after his daughter or look after his client. Can the two be combined to give the best of both worlds? Robbie aims to find out, and his attempts lead him into the alien worlds of high-fashion, drug-dealing and civil-litigation. It’s what being a father/lawyer is all about. Isn’t it?
‘A Scottish crime thriller with a great lead in lawyer Robbie Munro and a cast of reprobates to keep you guessing, laughing and on the edge of your seat - a cracking read.’
‘Funny, intelligent and realistic...The dialogue sparks, the personal relationships built between our main protagonist and the supporting cast is hugely compelling and overall I really can’t recommend this highly enough.'’

‘Readers who have encountered Robbie Munro before will approach this latest book expecting fast-moving Tartan Noir... They'll not be disappointed. This is a thoroughly enjoyable read that keeps you turning the page from the start to the very end.’
‘'A clever, absorbing and funny book...The dynamics between the family relationships are hilarious and astute and that combined with the thriller element to the book, makes it an addictive turner. I loved it!’
