UGLY. IRASCIBLE. INTOLERANT. CLEVER. Published as a bind-up for the first time, HARRY CURRY: CRIMINAL DEFENDER brings together Stuart Littlemore's first two collections of courtroom drama, HARRY CURRY: COUNSEL OF CHOICE and HARRY CURRY: THE MURDER BOOK. UGLY. IRASCIBLE. INtOLERANt. CLEVER. HARRY CURRY: COUNSEL OF CHOICE (Book 1) From one of our sharpest legal minds comes a brilliant new character, Harry Curry-scion of the establishment and criminal defender extraordinaire. A class traitor, some say.When Harry's robust advocacy leads to his suspension for professional misconduct, he teams up reluctantly with Arabella Engineer, an English barrister of Indian descent, struggling for a foothold at the Sydney bar. together, they wreak havoc in criminal trials involving drug-dealing, terrorism, murder and more.

Harry's visits to Sydney are few and far between, and Ms Engineer begins to find excuses not to catch the little plane down to Merimbula ... Is it Harry's fate to die an eccentric gentleman farmer? Will Arabella decamp with a suitable Indian boy? Can the pair-aided and abetted by faithful solicitor David Surrey-rediscover the spark that brought them together?
