Good News, Bad News: A Best Defence Novel
Life's full of good news and bad news for defence lawyer Robbie Munro. The good news is he's in work, representing Antonia Brechin on a drugs charge. The bad news is that she's the granddaughter of notorious Sheriff Brechin.
Meanwhile, another of Robbie's clients, Ellen Fletcher, has won the lottery and asked Robbie to find her husband Freddy, who disappeared having swindled the evil Jake Turpie. Unfortunately, Jake's not willing to bury the hatchet - not unless it's in Freddy's head.
Robbie juggles cases and private life with his usual dexterity, but the more he tries to fix things the more trouble everyone's in.
