'Crime with an edge of dark humour. The Best Defence series could only come out of Scotland.'
'Present Tense is a wickedly readable and darkly humorous novel...'* Sergio Casco, Director of American Cousins *
'Page-turning read, all helped by a clear and crisp writing style.The depiction of the criminal justice system from the perspective of the legal personnel, rather than cops or criminals, is a fresh take for the Tartan Noir scene and I look forward to seeing where McIntyre takes Robbie next.'
'McIntyre writes snappy prose and there are light-hearted nods to the hard-boiled classics of the genre.'
'Filled with the healthy cynicism and witty asides which one tends to find in the criminal courts, this is great stuff.'
'You will not be disappointed and will wonder why no one else has written such an accurate and humorous account of the Scottish criminal system from the lawyer's perspective.'
'Based on his own real life cases, and punctuated by classic Scottish humour, McIntyre's realism, created by the his experience in the field, ensures a gripping and plot-twisting read...'
'...what makes it most enjoyable is the totally authentic way in which the Scottish criminal justice system is portrayed and especially the interaction between the lawyers, the police and others involved in the legal process.'
'This is dark humour, ironic humour, the kind you need when dealing with the things lawyers deal with.'
'This is an entertaining novel with enough of a mystery threaded through it to keep crime fans gripped, and characters well rounded enough to carry a series.'
