Do your dury and leave the rest to heaven
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.
When local lawyer Max Abercrombie is gunned down in cold blood, the historic town of Linlithgow is shocked by its first assassination in five hundred years. Robbie, Max’s childhood friend, is appalled to find himself duty bound to act in the accused's defence, but when his investigations reveal a link between his friend’s murder and that of a High Court judge many years before, he wonders if his client might actually be an innocent man. The more Robbie digs into the past, the closer he gets to the truth and the more the bodies pile up.
Duty Man is the second in a series of smart, fast-moving, crime novels by Scottish criminal defence lawyer, William McIntyre, featuring an engagingly head-strong protagonist and exploiting the kind of authentic court-room, prison and procedural details that stem from years of first-hand experience. The action is centred around the Royal Burgh of Linlithgow in West Lothian and roams over the Larger Central Belt of Scotland.

I am really enjoying the characters unfolding in Robbie's day to day life and how they all interact. The humour took me by surprise initially, and I love it!
The chapters aren't long, so if you're really tired, you can enjoy a couple before retiring to bed without feeling challenged.
I haven't visited Edinburgh yet, and I'm finding the descriptions of the city very inviting. Maybe next year, I could find myself walking around the capital, exploring some of Robbie's haunts.
These books are a great mix of facts, history, family chemistry and the struggles of being self employed, all infused with wonderful Scottish humour.
