A novel by

1985 John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger (shortlist)

The first book in the Brady Coyne mystery series in which he investigates the apparent suicide of the son of a wealthy client, who is convinced that he was murdered.

A legal thriller without a courtroom? A lawyer who's actually a nice guy? Here's the brief.... Boston's Brady Coyne would rather fish than fight. He's not partnership material -- legal or matrimonial. Barrister to the Brahmins through a quirk of fate, Brady finds his clients usually demand his personal, discreet attention. Elderly Florence Gresham is wealthy and whipcord tough. A realist, she's accepted the loss of her elder son to Vietnam and the suicide of her husband. But when her youngest son steps off a cliff, Florence won't buy the coroner's obvious conclusion of what happened to George. Brady must uncover the truth. Low key or not, barrister Brady likes to win...
