Three more novels on the way!

Thank you to everyone who has helped to make Removal such a success.  It has been well reviewed on Amazon, and I have received many messages saying how much you have enjoyed it.  Removal is published by No Exit Press, London, in the UK, and by Arcade Publishing, New York, in the US.  I’m excited to be doing a signing in Houston, Texas, on November 1, more details to follow.   No Exit has signed me up for three more novels.

The first, A Higher Duty, will be out at Christmas in e-book and in paperback in February. It’s a bit different to Removal, a dark tale of blackmail, hypocrisy, and prejudice among barristers in the early 1960’s. If you enjoyed the BBC TV series Silk, you will love this.  When the reputation of a set of barrister’s chambers is threatened by scandal, the gentlemanly air disappears and its head will do whatever is necessary to cover the scandal up and threaten those who want to expose him.  Even justice itself will be sacrificed, the courts manipulated, if necessary.  As a member of the bar myself for many years, I come to this as an insider, and I take you deep inside this refined, but vulnerable world of privilege.

Next will be a sequel to Removal, working title Test of Resolve, to be published in 2013.  After that,the start of a series based on A Higher Duty, based on the cases of criminal barrister Ben Schroeder.  The first in the series has the working title A Matter for the Jury.

Further news as it develops!
