Excellent Intentions (British Library Crime Classics)

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY MARTIN EDWARDS


'From the point of view of the nation, it's a good thing that he died.'


Great Barwick's least popular man is murdered on a train. Twelve jurors sit in court. Four suspects are identified – but which of them is on trial? This novel has all the makings of a classic murder mystery, but with a twist: as Attorney-General Anstruther Blayton leads the court through prosecution and defence, Inspector Fenby carries out his investigation. All this occurs while the identity of the figure in the dock is kept tantalisingly out of reach.


Excellent Intentions is a classic crime novel laced with irreverent wit, first published in 1938.

Dead Man Switch
"WHEN IT COMES TO QUIRK, I FOLLOW A SIMPLE THREE-STEP PLAN: BUY, CANCEL PLANS, READ." --Gregg Hurwitz, bestselling author of Orphan X and The Nowhere Man

Someone is hunting down America's most elite special ops soldiers--in their homes.

A deadly fall on a rugged stretch of California coast. A burglary gone wrong in Virginia. These incidents seem unrelated, but the victims all were living undercover, their true identities closely held secrets. They are members of a classified team, the last line of defense against foreign threats. Now someone is assassinating them, one by one, taking out family members and innocent bystanders to make the deaths seem like accidents.

Captain John Hayes, a special operations legend, has left the military to settle down with his family. But when he pieces together a pattern behind the murders and discovers that his protégée Claire Rhodes, a brilliant assassin, is the prime suspect, he returns to duty to unmask the attackers.

With every success, the killers grow bolder. Their ultimate goal: Lure Hayes and his remaining fellow soldiers to Manhattan, to eliminate them all in a single devastating strike. To save his teammates and thousands of innocent lives, Hayes must find a way to stop a seemingly unstoppable weapon.

Dead Man Switch delivers nonstop twists, turns, and action in a high-stakes thriller about what happens when the fight abroad follows our covert operators home--and their painstakingly constructed double lives are shattered.

Good Intentions

The path to justice is paved with good intentions.

Judge Jim Thompson’s world is unraveling. He’s facing public backlash on a decision-gone-wrong for a young boy in foster care and, even worse, he’s just discovered that his mentor, Judge Meyer, has been murdered.

Despite his self-doubt in the face of media scrutiny, Jim is determined to continue his friend’s legacy—and find his killer. As he digs into the mysterious death, Jim comes across a case that had haunted the judge for decades—a case he couldn’t let go of. Judge Meyer had worked hard to find the right solutions for foster children, but rulings in such cases are never simple, and his decisions may have cost him his life.

As Jim searches for answers, he begins to see similarities between his mentor’s past and his own present. Now it’s up to him to learn from his late friend’s mistakes and track down a killer—before he loses everything that matters to him.

Bum Deal (Jake Lassiter Legal Thrillers Book 13)
"They don't call us sharks for our ability to swim." - Jake Lassiter

Second-string linebacker turned disillusioned defense attorney Jake Lassiter finally switches teams. Appointed special prosecutor in a high-profile murder case, he vows to take down a prominent surgeon accused of killing his wife. 

Standing in Lassiter's way are the defense lawyers: slick-talking Steve Solomon and blueblood Victoria Lord, who have their own complicated history with the defendant. Not to mention the specter of CTE, the lethal brain disease Lassiter may have contracted banging heads in the NFL.

Drained of his mental edge just when he needs it most, Lassiter must do whatever it takes to win this case--even if it costs him his life. Because law is a contact sport, and you don't get trophies for trying.

Moses v. Trump
Seasoned judge Jay Jason has seen much in his seventy five years, but never something quite like this. Defense lawyer Ira Moses has been accused of bribing a juror in order to secure a courtroom victory in his most recent case – a perjury charge against the Secretary of Commerce. Rumors spread, and soon the media has a hold of the story. Even President Donald Trump shares his views, taking to Twitter to further defame Moses. And so Moses dares to do what no one has successfully done yet– he sues the President for libel. Judge Jay Jason must now preside over the following case. As the proceedings unfold, Jason continuously struggles to live up to his moral ethics of fairness and justice in the courtroom while remaining true to himself as a strong, anti-Trump liberal. Will Moses make a strong enough case against POTUS, or will Trump come out on top?
