A novel by

Charles Holborne is back in an exciting legal thriller! Perfect for fans of John Grisham, Robert Bailey, Michael Connelly and Robert Dugoni.

Corruption is at the core of the English justice system…

London, 1963

Charles Holborne may have just escaped the hangman by proving he was framed for murder, but his life is now in ruins.

His wife is dead, his high-flying career has morphed into criminal notoriety, and bankruptcy threatens.

So it seems too good to be true when the brief of a lifetime lands on his desk – with a pay check to match.

But as Charles delves deeper into the police corruption and warring criminal gangs involved in the case, he realises his reputation – and his life – could once more be on the line…

Can Charles win the case without compromising his integrity?

Or will he fail to remain An Honest Man…?

gripping and utterly compelling… Brilliant! A must read.’ – RC Bridgestock, author of the best-selling DI Dylan series

‘Michael brings something new to the crime and courtroom genre. Set against the grimy underbelly of 1960s London, his accuracy and authenticity make this
an absolute must-read for crime fans who value thought and content over furious action, however spectacular.’ – Crime Review

a terrific story that could only be based in 1960’s London’ – Nigel Adams Bookworm Blog

‘This series excites me, it is
solid, well written, well plotted and imagined. If you enjoy crime books with a bit of originality then I think you would like this one’ – Reflections of a Reader Blog

An exceptional novel by an exceptional writer. Charles Holborne is an utterly convincing and compelling fictional creation – I came to have the same sense of attachment to this honourable yet beleaguered barrister that I have for characters such as Philip Marlowe or Maigret… I recommend this book to all those who love fine writing, a scintillating story, and a central character that captivates both the heart and the mind; a character who will exist in the imagination of the reader long after the final page has been read’ – Mark Mayes, author of The Gift Maker
