    I find myself currently, genuinely gutted that I've now finished book no. 4 starring Robbie Munroe et al. As a previous reviewer mentioned, these characters have become real to me, and I'm missing them already!The fact that Mr McIntyre hasn't yet got a publisher is a complete mystery to me. Over my many years of voracious reading, I've had the misfortune on occasion of having to endure some really tedious dross that HAS been published, widely advertised and acclaimed, but my review for some of them would be - meh.These 4 books on the other hand have kept me hugely entertained and left me wanting more - soon!The plots are solid, with the court & legal procedures having a genuine feel about them; but the real plus here is characterisation. Robbie Munroe is a poor defence lawyer always on the lookout for ways to boost his paltry legal aid income. The interactions between him, his dad, brother, and others very much play their parts in these tales, but it is the witty humour with which the stories are told that kept me reading - and chuckling.I love them and will be recommending them to everyone I know - can I suggest we all do the same? I don't know how publishers decide what is and isn't publishable, but they've got it very wrong here. Again echoing a previous review - these stories and characters would make great tv so perhaps if the publishers lack vision, there's scope for a tv coup here eh?

    That heading probably summarises it all - here we have another well-written crime fiction story featuring a defence lawyer. The story threads are sound and we have a bit of wit and no nonsense. A good all-round package, in other words.I still haven't warmed to Robbie, our protagonist, but I keep going back, which says something about the quality of the writing and the series, I would think.A few typo and punctuation issues, but not enough to impact the rating.I love the author and the series and will be going back for more.

    Just love this series, not the least as I come from Linlithgow and love to guess which pubs and locals are featured. Eagerly await the next instalment

    Only found out about this book via a thread in a discussion a couple of days ago but very glad that I finally found out about it. A cracking read - couldn't put it down and although I had kind of worked out who the culprit was, I wasn't sure how it was going to come together. However, it all came together nicely and there is definitely more that can come from this great series. Although Mr McIntyre does not have a book deal - he is doing a grand job publishing these entertaining and insightful novels. Thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait for #5 - which is in development just now, I understand.

    I echo the thoughts of the previous reviewer wholeheartedly!!! I fail to understand how this author can't find a publisher. The humour and story line is solid and believable (so many are not, or stumble in the final chapter). I have read all the books in this series and they have all been brilliant. I now understand why I couldn't buy the books from any store including Amazon! Please can someone correct this travesty?

    I have just finished the 4th book in the Robbie Munroe Best Defence series and I have to say it is the best yet. Killer Contract had a fast pace from start to finish and really flowed so much so that I couldn't put it down and read it on one sitting. The books are funny, witty and entertaining and I also can't understand why William McIntyre has not been picked up by a publisher. Roll on book 5.
