I’m a HUGE fan of this series based on the last couple I’ve read so I was excited enough when I received this preuel through the door to pick it up straight away Then I read it fast because seriously these characters are SO engaging you just want to go and live with themIn Last Will we are finding out how Robbie’s daughter came to live with him – it is funny intelligent and realistic on the parenting front – at the same time he is embroiled with Jake a murder and dealing with people’s “help” creating some hilarious situational moments as well as some edge of the seat onesWhat I love about the Best Defence series is the dynamic edgy and immersive writing the vividly drawn and full of life characters and the deft plotting that incorporates family drama legal drama and thriller to an absolutely addictive degree I love Robbie’s family especially his ex footballer brother his staff it was great to see Joanne in retrospect knowing what was coming later and the authors ability to write a totally non annoying and brilliantly authentic child character really puts the icing on the cakeThe mystery element is also excellent – Robbie’s path to the truth is hilariously twisted and keeps the reader guessing The dialogue sparks the personal relationships built between our main protagonist and the supporting cast is hugely compelling and overall I really can’t recommend this highly enoughLoved it Loved loved When can I have ?That is all WHS has pulled it out the bag once again with another thriller Robbie's character was primarily the reason why I rated this novel 5 stars He's a great protagonist to look up to from his wit and constant determination to be a good father to his daughter while dealing with a high profile criminal case simultaneously Upon hearing the premise I was most skeptical of the family law element in the story but it was the perfect plot to run alongside the various homicides and action packed seuences It broke the heavy tension of chasing down witnesses and discovering scandals and revenge hungry supporting charactersThe thriller part of the novel is never forgotten with constant twists that highlight just how dangerous and high the stakes are Despite being a barrister Robbie comes across as a really exciting detective as he is trying to get to the bottom of what exactly went down that fateful night by getting involved with huge criminal underworld corporations and even fashion housesMcIntyre is a mastermind when it comes to supporting characters and I was so heavily invested in their parts of the story Robbie's brother is an ex football star which upon first hearing this detail one would assume he would have no part in a legal thriller yet his constant banter and occasional helping hand bring a lighter tone to the novel The way the case was resolved metaphorically floored me it was intricate and completely out of the blue Just when you think you've figured it out it turns the other way so this book should definitely be next on your to be read list Well written and funny this is an enjoyable story with likeable characters Great escapism with a strong base in Scottish law Very readable detective story which sees lawyer Robbie Munro unravelling the mystery of a farmhouse murder in order to save his client I think everything was thrown in dealers hookers high fashion footballers social work multiple deaths mums dads custody and an inheritance Still a very likeable hero and some well sketched characters If you like tartan noir you’ll love this An entertaining read Great read great paceRobbie Munro is a man I would like to have as a very good friend or neighbour His personality is so skilfully crafted he exists Will definitely read of this series
