Review

‘Gripping, intriguing, and darkly witty at times, STITCH UP by William McIntyre is a cracking story that will leave you wanting more from the main characters. ’

Linda, Books of All Kinds blog

‘Stitch Up is a book we'd recommend to all fans of Tartan Noir who want something just a little different.’

Undiscovered Scotland

‘I really enjoyed the legal spin on the traditional crime thriller... Very clever.’

A Little Book Problem blog

‘Would highly recommend this un-put-downable and fast-paced read.’

Beauty Balm blog

‘A cracking read, cleverly plotted, engaging characters, humorous and it is clear William McIntyre knows his subject matter well.’

Grab This Book blog

‘A deft slice of Caledonian crime... rings viscerally true, thanks no doubt to McIntyre's lifelong experience in criminal law.’

The Times

‘A compelling, well-plotted mystery.’

The Herald

‘In this new release, he does not disappoint in bringing his trademark nail-biting, dark-humoured writing, with twists and gut-wrenching surprises that leave you thinking, ‘just one more page please…’’

Scottish Field

‘My heart lifts when I hear there is a new Robbie book heading my way. [Stitch Up] rattles along at the usual breathtaking pace. I can tell you no more: all I will say is, don’t do the old Agatha Christie trick of reading the last page first.’

The Journal of the Law Society of Scotland

‘I love this series – funny, insightful, great characters, witty and absorbing... Stitch Up was possibly my favourite one yet.’

William McIntyre is a partner in Scotland's oldest law firm Russel + Aitken, specialising in criminal defence. William has been instructed in many interesting and high-profile cases over the years and now turns fact into fiction with his string of legal thrillers ALL featuring defence lawyer, Robbie Munro:

THE BEST DEFENCE/ROBBIE MUNRO SERIES:

Relatively Guilty

Duty Man

Sharp Practice

Killer Contract

Crime Fiction

Last Will

Present Tense

Good News Bad News

Stitch Up

Fixed Odds

Bad Debt

Best Defence

Based in Scotland and drawing on William's thirty years as a criminal defence lawyer, there is a rich vein of dry-humour running through the series, which he describes as an antidote to crime fiction that features maverick cops chasing a serial killers, and in it he emphasises that justice is not only about convicting the guilty, but also about acquitting the innocent.

William writes from the heart and from his own experiences. Robbie Munro, is very much a real life lawyer, juggling a host of cases, dealing with awkward clients and battling an at times Kafkaesque legal system, all while trying to retain some form of personal life. Notwithstanding their relatively light-hearted approach, the books deal with some very serious issues, each story raising an interesting philosophical or ethical issue. Though the plots are often complex, they are never confusing such is William's deftness of touch.

The books, which are stand alone or can be read in series, have been well received by many fellow professionals, on both sides of the Bar, due to their accuracy in law and procedure and Robbie's frank, if sardonic, view on the idiosyncrasies of the Scots criminal justice system.

William is married with four sons.
