NICK STONE    Book Number: 87202    Product format: Paperback

A fast-paced legal thriller and a nitty-gritty portrayal of London's seamier side. Publisher's Weekly starred this book with this review "The Machiavellian plotting, Old Bailey fireworks, and almost Dickensian richness of character and setting make this a standout." Terry Flynt is a struggling legal clerk, desperately trying to get promoted. He is then given the biggest opportunity of his career, to help defend a millionaire accused of murdering a woman in his hotel suite. The only problem is that the accused man, Vernon James, turns out to be not only someone he knows, but someone he loathes. This case could potentially make Terry's career, but how can he defend a former friend who betrayed him so badly? With the trial date looming, Terry delves deeper into Vernon's life and is forced to confront secrets from their shared past which could have devastating consequences for them both. For years he has wanted to witness Vernon's downfall, but with so much at stake how can he be sure that Vernon is guilty? Packed with tension, suspense and surprises from the award-winning novelist. 500 page paperback.
