Welcome to my podcast, The Crime Fiction Lounge.
My guest on this episode is legal thriller author Gary Bell QC. Now Gary has an interesting and unusual background, to say the least, this is one interview that you won’t want to miss!
Born into a coal mining family, Gary Bell left school without any qualifications and was an apprentice mechanic, forklift truck driver, production line worker, builder, fireman, and door-to-door salesman, as well as a notorious football hooligan, before being arrested for fraud aged 18. After a brief stint in prison, he set off to seek fame and fortune abroad and, after two years drifting around Europe ended up penniless and homeless. He next enrolled in an FE College to study his O and A levels, and then went on to study law as a mature student at Bristol University where he ‘became’ an Old Etonian.
Beyond Reasonable Doubt (Book #1 in the Elliot Graham QC Series) by Gary Bell
Beyond Reasonable Doubt
The start of a thrilling new legal series, perfect for fans of Robert Galbraith and The Secret Barrister, written by an acclaimed QC.
Elliot Rook QC is one of the greatest barristers of his generation.
He is also a complete fraud.
Elliot Rook is the epitome of a highly successful, old Etonian QC. Or so everyone believes. In fact, he is an ex-petty criminal with a past that he has spent decades keeping secret. Until now.
An unidentified young woman of Middle Eastern origin has been found murdered on the outskirts of Rook’s home town. Billy Barber – a violent football hooligan and white-supremacist – is accused of her murder. Barber insists that Rook must defend him. If Rook refuses, Barber will expose him, bringing crashing to the ground the life and career that Rook has spent his life building.
The truth is there for the finding. But at what cost?
