My Review

Robbie Munro is a defence lawyer, defending Genghis McCann a small time crook who is at the rob again. These guys are Munro's normal clientele, up next is a high profile case, a famous snooker player who is accused of throwing games, if Munro doesn't win the client's work rep is over and the world is watching.

So this is part of a series but I have never read any of MacIntyre's previous books and don't think I lost out on anything by starting with this one. Robbie is a family man and with a second baby on the way he needs to knuckle down, get work in and provide for his family. Outwith the courtroom we have some drama's and Robbie is hilarious in some of his interactions, chat and just thought process in how to goes about stuff. He is around enough shady people that you can't help but have some kind of tarnish but he is an actual good guy and you are rooting for him throughout.

His clients are characters and have a lot of personality, I hated the famous client, what an arrogant rude individual but you can imagine this to be what some clients are like, coming from money or not. I liked the wee characters that don't have huge parts in the novel but the parts they are in have a lasting effect, well they did for me. Whilst this is my first by this author it won't be my last, I will be buying the back catalogue of the series, 4/5 for me this time.
