Yet another hilarious legal thriller from William McIntyre The plot is excellent, the characters are wonderful, and I can t wait to read about what Robbie gets up to next Everything Is Coming Up Roses For Robbie Munro, Newly Married And Living In The Country With His Wife And Child That Is Until His Wife Takes Up Employment Abroad Just As Old Flame, Jill Green, Asks Him To Investigate The Unexplained Death Of Her Partner Suspecting Foul Play, Jill Insists Robbie Does Whatever It Takes To Find The Killer As Robbie Begins His Investigation, His Father, Ex Police Sergeant Alex Munro, Comes Under Scrutiny Was The Evidence At The Trial Of A Man Found Guilty Of Child Murder Twenty Years Ago Fabricated Can Robbie Juggle His Duties As A Father, Investigate His Ex S Claims, And Prove His Father S Innocence The main character in the book, Robbie Munro, is a criminal lawyer just like the author and McIntyre s background knowledge really shines through in the writing and makes the book feel very authentic although I m not sure most real lawyers would go as far as he done in the pursuit of the truth I really enjoyed the legal spin on the traditional crime thriller, it gave an interesting and unusual perspective that was refreshing.The characters in this book are entertaining and, on the most part, very likeable and I was drawn through the book very easily, my interest held from page to page Robbie s personal life features quite heavily, particularly as his father is the subject of one of the two story lines, and I really enjoyed this aspect, particularly the appearances of his daughter, who is a feisty six year old with a lot of opinions she is not afraid to express It gave the book a lightness amongst the tension which was very enjoyable.As indicated above, there are two plots running along side by side One is the re opening of an old case involving Robbie s father which he gets involved in in the hopes of keeping his father from jail The other is a recent death that he is invited to investigate by his ex fiance The dual story lines were both well plotted and intriguing and kept the book interesting and moving forward There were plenty of twists and turns to propel the book forwards and I did not see most of them coming, the writing is very clever I really enjoyed the whole tone of the book, it was very easy to get engrossed in.The book is set in Linlithgow, not a place I know well, and I really loved the flavour of Scotland infused throughout Tartan Noir is a big trend at the moment and this book is a welcome addition to the genre.I would highly recommend this book and I will definitely be going back to read the previous books in the series. A really good book funny, with plenty of action showing a man trying to do his best as circumstances increasingly work against him Interesting moral at the end the end justified the means I m not sure I ever really felt Joanna was going to leave our hero, but for the rest, smashing Gripping, intriguing, and darkly witty at times, STITCH UP by William McIntyre is a cracking story that will leave you wanting from the main characters Robbie Munro is happy Happily married, happy with his little daughter, and happy with his work as a criminal attorney But like all things in life you never know what lies around the corner Suddenly the woman who dumped him turns up looking for his help in investigating the death of her partner, and when a convicted child killer finds himself released on the premise that evidence was fabricated, Robbie finds himself defending his father who was the police sergeant at the time As Robbie tries to uncover the truth for everyone involved, he soon realises that there is a lot hidden to these cases than meets the eye, and will the guilty be brought to justice I immediately got sucked into this story and with excellent pacing and dynamic prose, I was hooked to the very end There is plenty of detective work, clues, twists, and moments of dark humour to make STITCH UP by William McIntyre a really good read and I highly recommend it to crime fiction fans everywhere I voluntarily reviewed this book from the Publisher Well written and enjoyable story about a convicted child killer s appeal Despite how it sounds, it s light hearted and fun with likeable characters McIntyre s got a funny way with words that I m sure than the Scottish will find amusing. Outstanding as usual, can t believe I ve had to catch up and wait until July for the next installment I love this series, another winner with this one. This is my first read of the series I ll definitely be going back to read the others I thoroughly enjoyed this fast paced and gripping read with interesting characters and storylines.The story opens with Criminal Lawyer, Robbie Munro meeting up with old friend and acquaintance, Cammy Foster who is looking for some assistance Ricky Hertz is getting out of prison after 18 years and Cammy is totally raging Hertz killed three girls including his sister, whose body has never been found He d like to take matters into his own hands but Robbie warns him against it.New evidence has been uncovered and the Counter Corruption Unit are looking into the case Robbie s dad, Alex Munro was a Police Sergeant at the time and is being investigated Some unexpected things happen which shed a whole new light on the case and could change everything..Meanwhile, ex girlfriend Jill wants Robbie to look at the suspicious death of her rich husband, Hercule Mercier who died suddenly in his suite at The Newberry Jill hands Robbie a large amount of cash to pay for his time although he and others believe it was suicide rather than murder There are a few of twists near to the end which I didn t see coming a couple of which I m still thinking about now Would highly recommend this un put downable and fast paced read.
