Welcome to the world of Dave Woolf, a hard-drinking, hard thinking lawyer-detective surrounded by a cast of characters that includes his former law partner and future lover Sandy, the seedy nightclub owner Lewis, Tim Dowell, a policeman with a more dysfunctional relationship with the law and the truth than the criminals he investigates, also Dave's new Australian sidekick Carson and his nemesis, the dark, dangerous and devious High Court judge Russel Orbach. But everyone must always remember, no one falls out with each other as badly as lawyers.
The Last Wednesday - Someone is killing off the members of a left-leaning set of barristers' chambers.
Controlling Interest - A family firm of solicitors is torn apart by freemasonry and organised crime.
The Judge's Song - A corrupt judge is in the pocket of a pair of East London gangsters.
Orbach's Judgment - A pop star's autobiography lays the blame for the death of her parents at Russel Orbach's door and Dave discovers that there is no depth of deceit to which Orbach would not descend to serve his own ends.
