The Verdict by Nick Stone
Terry Flynt is a great everyman - the guy who is trying to improve his life after messing up at the bottom of a bottle of booze. So to start over he is working as a law clerk in a pushy and semi-questionable law firm.
All that changes when his old best friend is accused of murder. Now that sentence may make you think that he is also a down-on-his-look Londoner. But - you would be wrong. Instead, Vernon James is someone - REALLY someone! He is rich and powerful and a little shady and an accused murderer.
So - it seems like Terry Flynt is in the best place to defend his friend. Which would be true if they were still friends, which they aren't.
This is a cat and mouse game of lies and hidden agenda and Londoners and foreigners is intriguing and involved. I enjoyed all of it -didn't quite have it figured out - which always makes me happy!
