Too many crime novels presume that the lawyer or detective has only one case to deal with at any one time, and has no life outside the confines of his legal practice.

In author Alan Barrington’s “Crash Course: To Hell in a Handcart” (published by AuthorHouse UK), the reader is drawn into the true-to-life tale of a solicitor in private practice in a small town in South Wales, meeting people from all walks of life along the way.

The story focuses on one particular murder case, but Barrington invites readers behind the doors of a typical small law firm, giving an insight into the problems of ordinary people who need help and advice when they fall prey to the mysteries of the law.

The author also takes the reader outside the office walls. “Too many crime novels presume that the lawyer or detective has only one case to deal with at any one time, and has no life outside the confines of his legal practice,” says Barrington. “This is a notion that I wanted completely to debunk.”

In a novel teeming with humour and intrigue, thrills and danger, tenderness and violence, the reader shares the author’s personal thoughts and his private life, his terror and confusion as he find his life threatened, and then, in the final pages, the revelations that finally shatter his peace of mind.
