Sharp Practice: 3 Paperback – 5 May 2012

' A new take on tartan noir.’ The Scotsman
Scotland’s favourite criminal defence lawyer, Robbie Munro, is back and under pressure to find a missing child, defend a murdering drug-dealer and save the career of a child-pornography-possessing local doctor.
Add to that the antics of his badly-behaving ex-cop dad, the re-kindling of an old flame and a run-in with Scotland’s Justice Secretary and you’ll discover why it is that, sometimes, a lawyer has to resort to Sharp Practice.
Sharp Practice is the third 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.

Mr McIntyre has the ability to craft a multi-threaded story peopled with great characters and written in a most entertaining way. I wouldn't call it gritty, it's more like the literary equivalent of a Sunday evening episode of Minder (for those readers who can remember that show) but with more charm. And set in Scotland.
If it is true that the author is contemplating a move away from the Best Defence series, then I implore him to reconsider. This series deserves to run and run.
I read in another review that the author is wondering whether to write any more Munro books - please do!!!
I'm a criminal defence lawyer also and I can totally relate to the characters, good and bad! The writing flowed in pace and there was never a point where it seemed either boring or slow. This author is an absolute find! I will be looking out for more Robbie Munro books in this series.
If you have not heard of this author or this series, start with Relatively Guilty and you will be hooked!!
Having thoroughly enjoyed the first two in the Robbie Munro series I can say this one doesn't disappoint. Well written, funny, true to Scottish life and I would think, although I'm certainly no expert, very knowledgeable about the subject of law and court procedures, but in an entertaining way.
Looking forward to the (more expensive?) next one.
