Summary

London in the 1960s: gang wars, corrupt police, vice and pornography. Ex-boxer Charles Holborne has plenty of opportunities to build his reputation with the criminal classes as a barrister who delivers. But Charles, an East End boy made good, is not all he seems, and his past is snapping at his heels.
When his philandering wife has her throat slashed, Holborne finds himself on the wrong side of the law and on the run. Can he discover the truth of the brutal slaying and escape the hangman's noose?
Based upon real Old Bailey cases and genuine court documents, The Brief is the first in barrister Simon Michael's series of compelling criminal dramas, an evocative slice of sleazy glamour from the swinging '60s. Simon Michael delivers an authentic and addictive listen for any crime fan.

Great read - highly recommended

As a fan of criminal fiction I was pleased to find another brilliant series to get stuck in to. Well written and well paced, it kept my interest throughout. The writer clearly has knowledge of his subject and the story line and characters are all very believable. Had to follow what happens next to Charles Holborne so just purchased An Honest Man.
