Product description


'Death by Dangerous is a nail-bitingly paced thriller in which the barrister John Anderson finds himself caught up in a Kafkaesque spiral of disaster. Though unquestionably the driver of the car involved in a crash which killed two people, Anderson has no recollection of the incident. The mutli-ethnic tensions of contemporary Manchester are vividly brought to life as he sees the various elements of his life career, marriage, perhaps even sanity disintegrate before his eyes. Death by Dangerous is a very assured debut from Olly Jarvis, and I look forward to reading his next book.' -- Simon Brett, 2014 Golden Dagger Winner for outstanding body of work in crime fiction.

'Death by Dangerous by Olly Jarvis is a barrister's tale, my kind of page-turning legal thriller. I wish I'd discovered this ace legal thriller before I did my 'summer read' recommendations.' --Gyles Brandreth

'Olly Jarvis turns in a really good story, plenty of local interest for Mancunians, and a plot that keeps you guessing.' -- Books Monthly 'Fast paced thriller from inside the court room, an outstanding debut crime novel' -- The Last Word Review 'A really great read. Looking forward to more from Mr Jarvis.' -- Liz Loves Books 'Olly Jarvis has now been added to my list of favourite Authors, and he is very close to the top' -- Chocolate Pages 'The storyline played out perfectly for me and kept me guessing as to what would happen next and I was hooked right until the end.' -- David's Book Blurg 'I absolutely love legal thriller novels and this particular novel was certainly no exception. It is fast-paced, full of action and I read the whole thing sitting on the edge of my seat desperately turning the pages! I completed the novel in just one afternoon and found it so difficult to put down even to get food / drink!' -- Sara's Book Blog 'Death by Dangerous is an incredible fictional debut from Olly Jarvis and moments after turning the last page I am already desperate for him to release his next book.' -- Book Love Bug 'No other way to put this: Olly Jarvis has written a tour de force.' --Barrister blogger

'I was completely spellbound and inside his story that drove me like a car out of control, to the final page within a day of picking this book up.' --Crimesquad.com
