Last year Christchurch author Mark McGinn released his first thriller, TRUST NO ONE, on Smashwords, which is a good website for budding authors looking to go down the self-publishing route. I've been very impressed by a couple of books I've discovered and read from there.
This year, McGinn has released three further books, including a legal thriller, BEST SERVED COLD, which has as a heroine a Queen's Counsel (a highly regarded trial lawyer who's attained a merit-based elevation by the Crown to a higher status, for our non-Commonwealth friends reading here). Here's the blurb:
Remember what they say about revenge?As both a former lawyer and a lover of crime fiction, I'm excited to give this book a go.
They were once on a jury together, forty years ago, when a man was executed for killing his wife. Now three of the four are dead, amid personal vendettas and accusations of pornography, and the last man standing is arrested for the murders.
It’s up to Sasha Stace QC to secure his conviction. But the case is circumstantial, the trial sensational, and nothing is as it seems. In her fight for justice, Sasha embarks on a course that imperils her life and endangers those she loves.
Best Served Cold is a fast-moving and gripping legal thriller with more twists than the rope that strangles its victims. Be warned,
