Brief Encounters: Truth is Stranger than Fiction

By Derek Wheatley

9781903490525 | Jun-11 | Pegasus Elliot Mackenzie Publrs Ltd | pb | List Price HK$139

Fictionalised they had to be, since the Defendants were real people, who might still be living ... and you might be left with

the impression that but for the skills of their advocate, the fictional Tam Pearse, they would have been found to be "Guilty

as charged", and sentenced to the imprisonment which they had richly deserved. It is said that "Truth is stranger than

fiction" but you are left to decide this tricky question for yourselves. The one exception is the story of a holiday romance ...

just why did the beautiful, highly-born young lady, on holiday with her companion on the beaches in Galicia, seem to be so

very interested in his six year old son and apparently throw her cap at Tam, a happily married man on that sandy shore

Law & Peace: The Babybarista Files

By Tim Kevan

9781408821756 | Apr-12 | Bloomsbury Publishing Plc | pb | List Price HK$139

BabyBarista may have won the battle for tenancy, but the war has just begun. In his pupilage year, BabyBarista learned the

hard way that dirty tricks and a faulty moral compass are essential items in a young lawyer's briefcase. Chronicling the

hilarious and sometimes almost unbelievable absurdities of the modern bar, and peopled by a cast of unforgettable

characters, Law and Peace is a funny, fast-paced Machiavellian romp through the legal world.

Lawyers' Tales

By John Gray

9780954887896 | Sep-10 | Canis Press | hc | List Price HK$155

Lawyers' Tales is a miscellany of law-related very short stories and episodes. Fact, apocryphal, fact-fiction and pure fiction,

they make easy reading and are variously entertaining, informative, occasionally tragic and intermittently very funny: they

give a rare insight into the law and the lawyers. John Gray was born in 1938. Educated at Tonbridge School, he read law

at Brasenose College, Oxford. Called to the Bar in 1962, he was an Inner Temple major scholar from 1962-5 and practised

at the Common Law Bar for over thirty years, sitting as a recorder from 1984-1994 when he left the Bar to change direction,

to write, attend his garden and indulge a lifelong interest in wood. He is married with three grown up children and lives in

Kent.
