ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Burnt out from dealing with reprehensible clients, Peter Tanner is feeling deep rage. Then a colleague calls in a favour and asks him to defend a bankrupted Sydney property developer. Tina Leonard is charged with murdering the banker who reneged on refinancing her business – someone recently released from jail after serving time for possession of drugs. Tanner is convinced of her innocence and prepares his brief feeling he is finally defending someone worthwhile... An entertaining story with a character who denies his moral qualms and has a  self-deprecating or facetious quip for all occasions! Lindy Jones


Cocaine. Construction. Corruption. The unholy trinity of Sydney.

Self-made property mogul Tina Leonard has already lost her business, her home and custody of her children because South East Banking Corporation left her bankrupt. Now it appears she is being framed for the murder of her banker Oliver Randall, a senior executive of the corporation. Her motive? Revenge for ruining her life and her business.

When maverick lawyer Peter Tanner is brought in to represent Tina, he bends the law to learn the truth. Was the real killer employed by the bank to silence Randall, who knew too much about their corrupt clientele and business dealings?

As Tanner digs deeper the truth is harder and harder to find. Drug dealers and dodgy cops are a breed apart from corrupt corporate bankers, who’ll do anything to keep their names in the clear.

Who really silenced Randall? Tanner gets more than he bargained for as he tangles with craven bent banks and a client who can't talk, and danger lurks far too close to home.
