Nail-biting tension and exhilarating action – a brilliant debut legal thriller that fans of John Grisham, Lee Child and Michael Connelly will love.

I read a lot of crime thrillers, but this was my first court room drama, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was well paced, had an interesting plot, and a likeable but exciting leading character.

Action packed, tension filled, and with plenty of interesting twists to keep readers engaged. As Eddie came from a conman past, ideas or situations that might have been contrived were actually believable and engaging.

I’m a really hard reader to please, but The Defence is a punchy, fun novel delivered in a really fresh way, and I’m already looking forward to the sequel.

All of our reading group enjoyed this book. It was fast paced and we were all wondering how the hero would resolve his problems and get out alive
We look forward to more in this series
