Elliot Rook, QC: Book 2av Gary Bell169
Can Rook keep his criminal past a secret when facing the most dangerous case of his life? Thirteen men have died in a London prison. Barrister Elliot Rook QC, who risks losing everything if his secret criminal past is revealed, must defend Charli Meadows, the vulnerable single mother accused of smuggling the deadly tainted drugs inside. But just as Rook becomes suspicious of those closest to Charli, a note arrives at his flat - threatening violence if the trial is not called off. While Rook battles to defend Charli and protect himself, his young protege Zara Barnes is fighting for her livelihood. In a few short weeks, only one tenancy at the legal chambers will be available to the ever-multiplying mass of pupils. Determined to make it hers, Zara takes on her biggest solo case yet. But will her gamble pay off? Praise for the Elliot Rook QC series: '[A] thriller I found hard to put down' - Observer 'Slick and wonderfully paced, I was hooked from the opening pages. One of the best legal thrillers I have read recently, it reminded me of early Grisham' - AMW Books Blog 'A brilliant read' - A. N. Wilson, Tablet

The court scenes bristle with authenticity. Throughout, I had flashbacks to my time at the bar. And Rook is a compelling creation. Intrepid, irreverent and ingenious. I'm a follower. -- John Fairfax It's very well done - crackles with authenticity and warmth in the relationship between Rook and Zara. Rumpole of the Bailey dusted off and brought firmly up to date for the twenty first century. -- Harriet Tyce Post Mortem is brilliant in the court room and inventive -- Paul Burke * Crime Time *
