Thanks to Ceris at Sandstone press for my ARC of the new Robbie Munro legal thriller, Fixed Odds by William McIntyre.
This is the 5th in the series, but the 1st I’ve read, it won’t be the last!
William McIntyre has created a brilliant character in Robbie Munro, he’s a lawyer with a sense of mischief, he wants to do the right thing but he definitely lives on the edge!
Fixed Odds, is a humour filled legal crime caper, McIntyre has a deft touch, his writing and humour is both very funny, and at times quite charming. Whilst being very funny this in no way detracts from an excellent legal thriller, the courtroom scenes are brilliant, and though Robbie can come across as maybe a bit slapdash in his private life, in the courtroom he really shines.
Robbie has a young family to care for, and a baby on the way , an ex footballer brother, and a father who seems to be around all the time, it’s a close-knit family unit and Robbie does what he does to look after them in his own way.
Bungling criminals, Art theft, betting fraud, deceit and more all add up to make this witty legal thriller, criminally good.
