Review of "An Honest Man" by Simon Michael (Published by Urbane Publications)

Honest to goodness quality

An exceptional novel by an exceptional writer. Charles Holborne is an utterly convincing and compelling fictional creation – I came to have the same sense of attachment to this honourable yet beleaguered barrister that I have for characters such as Philip Marlowe or Maigret. 423 more words

Because there was more money FOR THEM AND THEIR ORGANISATION’S from the NHS and INSURER’S, if they DIDN’T TOUCH IT.
