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. But can their professional relationship survive when personal matters intervene? Is Harry truly fated to live and work alone? Harry Curry: Counsel of Choice is an insightful-and always engaging-romp through a fascinating segment of society, and an exciting debut by a talented insider. HARRY CURRY: tHE MURDER BOOK (Book 2) the renegade barrister Harry Curry and his elegant partner, Arabella Engineer, return with more thrilling spanner-in-the-works criminal trials, every one of them in defence of clients charged with murder. Meet the multiple murderer seeking a discounted sentence because he confesses to killings about which the police are clueless. Pity the fisherman who hated the sea, driven to let loose at his landlord with a rifle, plugging him ten times. And share the sadness of a shaken-baby case, where Harry, ever the iconoclast, takes on the conventional wisdom of self-serving medical experts. throughout these cases and more, the Curry-Engineer relationship waxes and wanes: Harry sells his Erskineville terrace and retreats to a farm on the Far South Coast; Arabella is showered with high-paying civil work and looks set for a life on the District Court bench. 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...?s 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? Perhaps they will-if Wallace Curry QC, from the fastness of his top-end retirement facility, lends a hand...
