Death by Dangerous is a compelling legal thriller set in Manchester and Bradford. John Anderson is one of the North West's most dedicated and successful prosecution barristers. His career is going from strength to strength and he is on the verge of becoming Queen's Counsel. But the life he once knew suddenly comes crashing down following a fatal road traffic accident... Recovering from his injuries, he has no memory of the collision. Was he responsible for the death of a child? Who was his female passenger? Facing charges of causing death by dangerous driving, the professional and personal life he once knew now lies in tatters. Depressed and taking refuge in alcohol, Anderson refuses, in the face of so many unanswered questions, to accept his guilt. He becomes convinced that the gangster he was prosecuting at the time of the crash is in some way involved. The mystery deepens as his search for the truth draws him into Manchester's sordid criminal underworld. Shunned by his former colleagues, Anderson finds help from an unlikely source, enabling him to confront his prejudices and re-evaluate his past life. He embarks on a journey of self-discovery and, ultimately, the path for his own redemption. Anderson knows that defeat means deliverance to a prison full of violent criminals he has prosecuted over the years. He now has to find the strength to fight the most important trial of his life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Death by Dangerous is a nail-bitingly paced thriller in which the barrister John Anderson finds himself caught up in a Kafkaesque spiral of disaster. Though unquestionably the driver of the car involved in a crash which killed two people, Anderson has no recollection of the incident. The mutli-ethnic tensions of contemporary Manchester are vividly brought to life as he sees the various elements of his life - career, marriage, perhaps even sanity - disintegrate before his eyes. Death by Dangerousis a very assured debut from Olly Jarvis, and I look forward to reading his next book.' -- Simon Brett
'Death by Dangerous by Olly Jarvis is a barrister's tale, my kind of page-turning legal thriller. I wish I'd discovered this ace legal thriller before I did my 'summer read' recommendations.' -- Gyles Brandreth
