Spotlight: Unconvicted by Olly Jarvis

Hello, and welcome to my stop on the Unconvicted blog tour.

You might have noticed that the tour banner features my old blog’s name – that’s because I’m a forgetful fly and didn’t update my blog details with the lovely folks at Canelo. Sorry for the confusion, but I’m glad that you managed to find me anyway!

Keep reading for more information on Unconvicted: I guarantee by the end of this post you’ll be unable to resist putting it on your TBR.

About the book: 

Unconvicted by Olly Jarvis

Unconvicted is the second novel in the Jack Kowalski series by Olly Jarvis. This legal thriller was published by Canelo on the 29th of January, and is the follow-up to Cut-Throat Defence (released October 2016).

In a razor-sharp legal thriller, Jack Kowalski must win two challenging trials to save his reputation and his career. 

Junior barrister Jack Kowalski is crushed. His client Timothy Smart appears to have committed a monstrous crime while on bail – a bail application Jack fought hard to win.

When a high-profile Polish footballer is charged with rape and demands a fellow countryman represent him, Jack must overcome his guilt and get back to work. Before long he takes on a second case, a GBH for instructing solicitor Lara Panassai, who Jack remains desperate to impress. But neither case is what it seems, and Jack will face an extraordinary uphill battle to see that justice is done…

The second Jack Kowalski novel, Unconvicted is a gripping courtroom drama written with the expert insight of a practicing criminal barrister, perfect for fans of William L. Myers, Deborah Hawkins and Scott Turow.
