About the Author:

Nick Stone’s first novel, Mr. Clarinet, was a critical and commercial success, winning several international awards including, in the UK, the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger for best thriller of the year, the International Thriller Writers Award for best first novel, and the Macavity Award for best first novel, in the USA, both in 2007. The French translation, Tonton Clarinette, won the public-voted SNCF Prix du Polar in 2009. Nick lives in Cambridge.

Review:

It's a relief to have English courtroom scenes described by an author who knows better than to scatter the dialogue with cries of 'objection' and the sound of a gavel, and a pleasure to read someone who so understands legal practice. A very enjoyable legal thriller. "

Now and then there's a book worth really shouting about. So listen up, this is the best legal thriller in years. "

Nick Stone has been described as the London John Grisham. A rattling good read.

Terrific stuff. An unrelenting narrative grip right up to its courtroom climax.

A terrific legal thriller in which long-buried secrets acquire the force of deadly weapons. The writing is vivid and energetic, and Stone has John Grisham s flair in the court scenes."

A propulsive legal thriller. The Machiavellian plotting, Old Bailey fireworks, and almost Dickensian richness of character and setting make this a standout.

A fast-moving British legal thriller filled with tension and surprises. No reader (one hopes) will root for the defendant. But they'll fret over Flynt, the underdog clerk who has so much to prove. The suspense never lets up in this terrific courtroom drama. Fans of John Grisham will love it. It's definitely movie material.

This is a taut, skillfully written, and engaging legal thriller. Major characters are very sharply drawn, and Stone s insights into the English legal system are plausible and eye-opening."
