A murder mystery with humour and intensity

Bad Debt is a cracking crime novel with less gore, more intrigue.

The storyline is a little far fetched – defence lawyer Robbie Munro’s wife is stalked by a witness in a trial that she is prosecuting, and Robbie is charged for the witness’ murder.

But with Robbie’s first person narrative immersing the reader fully in the plot, that matters little in the grand scheme.

McIntyre intersperses intensity with spatterings of humour and thanks to his own criminal law career he has plenty of tricks to throw you off the scent.

Bad Debt by William McIntyre, published by Sandstone Press, £7.99.
