BabyBarista book two - bravo!
on 3 May 2011
Not being a legal bod myself I was a little unsure of what to expect of The BabyBarista Files but after reading the first in the series, Law & Disorder, I can safely say you don't need to work in the legal profession to thoroughly enjoy these tales. If you watched the BBC programme Silk and were intrigued by life in chambers but wanting the best of British humour at the same time then these are the books for you.
Book two reunites the main character, BabyB with his nemesis, TopFirst, for lots more back stabbing and underhand tactics whilst a case involving some potty pensioners, the "Moldies", rumbles on. There's a whole host of genuinely interesting characters, including the wise and wistful OldRuin, OldSmoothie, the barrister they all love to hate and introducing a few new ones, my favourite of which goes by the name of Smutton. I'd say Law and Peace is a tad more saucy than the first, which is never a bad thing in my book.
It's a book that delivers on a lot of levels, there's plenty of humour, a good plot, some sage wisdom and even a bit of romance for good measure - i'm already looking forward to the next instalment.
