In a razor-sharp legal thriller, Jack Kowalski must win two challenging trials to save his reputation and his career.

Junior barrister Jack Kowalski is crushed. His client Timothy Smart appears to have committed a monstrous crime while on bail – a bail application Jack fought hard to win.

When a high-profile Polish footballer is charged with rape and demands a fellow countryman represent him, Jack must overcome his guilt and get back to work. Before long he takes on a second case, a GBH for instructing solicitor Lara Panassai, who Jack remains desperate to impress. But neither case is what it seems, and Jack will face an extraordinary uphill battle to see that justice is done…

The second Jack Kowalski novel, Unconvicted is a gripping courtroom drama written with the expert insight of a practicing criminal barrister, perfect for fans of William L. Myers, Deborah Hawkins, and Scott Turow.

peer-review red

Unconvicted by Olly Jarvis a thriller, with a sting in the tale there is a multitude of layers that are peeled back as Jack Kowalski (a Polish lawyer)commands several cases at once. Jack endeavours to close the cases but its proving difficult as they aren’t as clear cut as they seem.

Jack has found himself in an impenetrable situation where he is struggling to be part of the legal community, I’m unsure if this is because he has a conscience when fighting cases or something else. I wonder because I haven’t read the first book is this the reason why I don’t understand the behaviour of the law community, I shall be going back to read the very first to ascertain anything I may have missed.

For all my grumblings I really did enjoy the book, I’m not really one for reading very many court room dramas, I do have a bash, but they don’t always grab my attention, but Olly managed to keep my eyes pinned to the book and I look forward to reading many more.

Thank you to Canelo, Olly Jarvis and Ellie for an advanced readers copy of Unconvicted to read in exchanger for an honest review.
