The Last Chance Lawyer


Loved it! 😍

A peppy delight of a legal thriller with a wonderful new hero arrayed against huge odds

"The Last Chance Lawyer" features tricksy, driven trial lawyer Daniel Pike in his first outing of a new series by the amazingly prolific William Bernhardt. Drafted by circumstances into a small legal outfit that tackles impossible cases, here he must save a female gang member from Death Row in order to save a young girl from deportation into sex slavery. Bernhardt's wonderfully cadenced style, with heaps of perky dialogue, combines with a byzantine, legally detailed plot, to bring the reader (at least in this case) a confection easily devoured over two nights. Please return, Daniel Pike!

After a global finance career, Andres Kabel returned to his hometown of Melbourne to write. His Gentle & Tusk mystery series is two books strong, with a third on the way. Far from crime fiction, his stirring nonfiction tale of the history of nuclear reactors nears publication.
