9781847443267: The Verdict

Terry Flynt is a struggling legal clerk desperately trying to get promoted when he is given the biggest opportunity of his career: to help defend a millionaire accused of murdering a woman in his hotel suite. The only problem is that the accused man, Vernon James, is not only someone he knows but someone he loathes. This case could potentially make Terry's career, but how can he defend a former friend who betrayed him? With the trial date looming, Terry delves deeper into Vernon's life and is forced to confront secrets from their shared past that could have devastating consequences for them both. For years he has wanted to witness Vernon's downfall, but with so much at stake, how can Terry be sure he is guilty? How can he ensure that justice is done?

About the Author:

Nick Stone’s first novel, Mr. Clarinet, was a critical and commercial success, winning several international awards including, in the UK, the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger for best thriller of the year, the International Thriller Writers Award for best first novel, and the Macavity Award for best first novel, in the USA, both in 2007. The French translation, Tonton Clarinette, won the public-voted SNCF Prix du Polar in 2009. Nick lives in Cambridge.

Review:

It's a relief to have English courtroom scenes described by an author who knows better than to scatter the dialogue with cries of 'objection' and the sound of a gavel, and a pleasure to read someone who so understands legal practice. A very enjoyable legal thriller. "

Now and then there's a book worth really shouting about. So listen up, this is the best legal thriller in years. "

Nick Stone has been described as the London John Grisham. A rattling good read.

Terrific stuff. An unrelenting narrative grip right up to its courtroom climax.

A terrific legal thriller in which long-buried secrets acquire the force of deadly weapons. The writing is vivid and energetic, and Stone has John Grisham s flair in the court scenes."

A propulsive legal thriller. The Machiavellian plotting, Old Bailey fireworks, and almost Dickensian richness of character and setting make this a standout.

A fast-moving British legal thriller filled with tension and surprises. No reader (one hopes) will root for the defendant. But they'll fret over Flynt, the underdog clerk who has so much to prove. The suspense never lets up in this terrific courtroom drama. Fans of John Grisham will love it. It's definitely movie material.

This is a taut, skillfully written, and engaging legal thriller. Major characters are very sharply drawn, and Stone s insights into the English legal system are plausible and eye-opening."
