The Trial: Dark Urban Scottish Crime Story (Parliament House Books Book 1)

In Parliament House,scandal can be deadly.
A maverick lawyer. A secret worth killing for….

Brogan McLane has always been an outsider. Born on the wrong side of the tracks, he
learned to fight tooth and nail for justice in the mean streets of Glasgow, Scotland. But
now, after years of of hard work and study, McLane has been ‘Called to the Bar’, and
become a member of the most prestigious legal club in the country; The Faculty of
Advocates in Parliament House…
But his legal career may be cut short before it even begins. In the wake of a seedy
sex scandal, a High Court Judge is found dead… murdered in his palatial estate. The
victim’s wealthy and connected friends close ranks. One of them knows the killer’s
identity, but they care more about appearances than justice. They need to pin the
heinous crime on a scapegoat. And who better than ‘outsider’ Brogan McLane…

Out on bail, his career on hold, McLane needs to get ahead of his enemies fast, or
go down for a crime he didn’t commit. Enlisting the help of his scrappy Glasgow
friends, and an honest police commander, the rogue lawyer decides there’s only one
way to clear his name… find the real killer!

From Russian mafia bordellos to the halls of Scotland’s highest court, McLane
must use every trick in the book to catch a murderer as skilled at legal manipulation as
he is. But will it be enough to win the most important trial of his career… His own?

The Trial is the first standalone book in the addictive Parliament House Scottish
crime series. If you like heroic lawyers, scandalous twists, and edge-of-your-seat
suspense, you’ll love this gripping legal thriller.
