#1 in the acclaimed Best Defence Series
Crime with an edge of dark humour. The Best Defence series could only come out of Scotland.Tommy Flanagan, Braveheart, SOA, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Follow the trials of Scots criminal lawyer Robbie Munro as he joins battle in the fight for truth and justice - hoping truth and justice don't win too often because it's terribly bad for business.
A policeman with a caved-in skull, his young wife found clutching the blood-stained murder weapon; it all looks pretty open and shut until Robbie detects the faint whiff of a defence and closes in on a witness who might cast a precious doubt on proceedings.
So why is it, the nearer he gets to the truth and a possible acquittal, that Robbie's murder client becomes more and more eager to opt for a life sentence?
