‘You could tell it was summertime in Scotland by the longer intervals between the rain.’ Bad Debt
Scottish Lawyer Robbie Munro is acting for the defence in a case that his wife is prosecuting. Things get complicated when Joanna is stalked by the witness who later ends up dead. Charged with his murder, Robbie and some well meaning friends set about investigating events whilst in between consuming numerous quantities of beer, Scottish whisky and haggis naan (is that really a thing?).
However, finding the killer is harder than first thought and Robbie comes to realise that this time, it may be his enemies that he needs most.
I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed reading a Crime novel so much. Maybe it’s my Scottish roots relishing the dry wit, but I chuckled my way through Bad Debt, it is a hugely entertaining legal thriller.
The sixth in the series, it can be easily read as a stand alone although I feel now that I’ll have to buy all the back catalogue as I enjoyed it so much!
This is definitely a 5/5 for me.
