9780007334803: Killing the Lawyers

'Killing the Lawyers...is entertaining, sly, jokey...cynical, well written, and teems with sparkly dialogue - all the virtues we expect from Hill' Marcel Berlins The Times Joe Sixsmith, Luton's premier PI, is naturally on the side of the Law...Trouble is, the Law isn't always ready to return the compliment. When Joe turns to the town's top law firm for help in a motor insurance dispute, he gets assaulted verbally by one partner (male) and physically by another (female) and, vowing vengeance, walks out. So it's hardly surprising, when someone starts whacking the partners one by one, that Joe is elected the man most likely. At the same time he is trying to find out who is threatening all kinds of nastiness against top athlete Zak Oto if she wins her New Year's Day race to celebrate the opening of Luton's splendid Pleasure Dome. Everybody looks suspicious, from her ex-con minder Starbright Jones, through her trainers, past and present, to her own family. And the only reassurance Joe has that he's getting warm is when someone starts trying to kill him! This is the third novel to feature Joe Sixsmith and it confirms what the critical prophets have said from the start, that in the depth of his humanity, the honesty of his outlook, the bewilderment of his responses to much that the modern world confronts him with, and the strength of his resolve to give everything he undertakes his best shot, Joe is truly a hero for our times.

About the Author:

Reginald Hill was brought up in Cumbria, and has returned there after many years in Yorkshire. With his first crime novel, A Clubbable Woman, he was hailed as 'the crime novel's best hope' and twenty years on he has more than fulfilled that prophecy.
