Law and Peace reviewed at RollOnFriday


Very many thanks to Laura at RollOnFriday for reviewing my book Law and Peace. You can read the review here or below. You can buy the book on amazon.

"Former barrister Tim Kevan's follow up to last year's Law and Disorder, provides the next instalment  in the life of fictional junior barrister BabyB. Having schemed and plotted his way to tenancy, BabyB discovers that keeping his nose out of trouble now he is a fully-fledged member of chambers is easier said than done.

Still struggling with pressing financial problems (readers of Law and Disorder will remember that BabyB's poor old Ma risked bankruptcy to put him through law school), BabyB is put to work on a case involving pensioners with ASBOs. Before long he's back to his old tricks and when an unscrupulous solicitor, SlipperySlope, offers him a way out of his impecuniosity he (with few qualms) merrily jumps into a world of blackmail and insider trading.

There are dodgy dealings, financial misdoings, ridiculous courtroom capers and even a love story as BabyB realises he must win the heart of his best friend. The book is certainly a hectic scramble through some of the more implausible practices of the bar but that's the joy of it. It's a fun, frivolous, funny page-turner and you know it's all going to turn out fine in the end."
