This is my second outing with Brogan McLane QC and although I loved the first book I felt like I was home with this one. This is a legal thriller set in the Crown Courts but Brogan McLane always seems to get entangled far more than any normal QC would do. He does really get stuck right into the heart of the investigation side of things, playing a very dangerous game at times. He is married to Joanne who really shines in this story for me. The whole case becomes very personal for Brogan McLane and his wife, with some very moving scenes.
Some people may seem to have everything but to what lengths will they go to make sure that they keep what they have? This is a story about wealth, power and the value of a life, a little girl who has been through and seen too much. She is a package. Not the good stuff inside but just the vessel to carry to valuables. This story tests the whole judicial system and the men that thought they were above the law.
This isn’t a book that you can casually read, it is one where you really need to be involved with the events and who is who in return you get a story that will stay with you way after you have finished reading it. There is a lot of court jargon so make sure that you familiarise yourself with the Glossary at the front of the book before you start reading. As the book is set in Scotland there is also quite a bit of Scottish accents used which you will get the hang of as I did. It all goes to make it one very authentic story.
This is turning into a series to keep my eye one. Just loving it! Already got book three in the series ready to read.
For me this was a very strange and quite confusing world.
The main character is struggling to find a legal way to justice in a world of traditions, legal procedures, unspoken alliances and aristocrats who are above the law.
Understanding all this legal language wasn't easy for me.
On the other side there is a lot of Scottish accent. That was another challenge, but it shows the author's ability to switch voices.
And between all that there are some beautiful poetic passages and the despicable
I won this book in Booklover Catlady Maxine's competion. Thanks to the author and Maxine.
A fast moving plot, beautifully described.
Great attention to detail - Characters and settings from all walks of life makes interesting contrasts.
Great to have crime story without stereotyped police involved - but with our man Brogan McLane!
