DEFENDING ELTON is one of the most original and inventive crime fiction novels of recent years. It is a thrilling murder mystery, where the onus is less on 'who done it?' and more on 'will he get away with it?' The scene is set by the murder of the enigmatic beauty Sarena. London Lawyer Jim Harwood is tasked with defending the man accused of stabbing her and pushing her off a cliff, but nothing in this crime fiction tale is quite what it seems. Somebody is trying to manipulate Elton's trial, and they might just get away with murder... but as we are about to discover 'playing with truth can be a very dangerous game...'

'KISS AND TELL'  introduces us to Jill Shadow, a criminal lawyer who has overcome a traumatic past. Forget every lawyer stereotype you've ever come across, because Jill certainly breaks the mould... Imminent danger has seen Jill transferred to a safe house, with news that her daughter is missing, possibly abducted from school. Jill reckons that two events are key to solving the mystery. One is surely the release of her ex-partner Jimmy, but the other could be her recent involvement in the disturbing case of Bella Kiss, an Anglo-Hungarian drug smuggler.
