Brushes with the Law: Tony Kent and Abi Silver

Friday 22 February 12pm – 1pm
Lemon Tree Studio £9.50

Crime fiction investigating timely questions about contemporary society, from the pends of true legal insiders.

Tony Kent studied law in Scotland and is one of the UK’s leading barristers. he also spent a year as a heavyweight amateur boxer. his debut, Killer Intent, chosen for The Zoe Ball Book Club, introduced reporter Sarah Truman and Belfast-born criminal barrister Michael Devlin, a man with a secret past. it was brought for television by Liberty Films with Duncan Jones on board to direct and executive produce the series.

The follow up, Marked for Death, finds Truman and Devlin fighting present day demons alongside murderous ghosts from the pasts.

Lawyer Abi Silver’s twisty, suspenseful courtroom dramas feature legal duo Judith Burton and Constance Lamb and grapple with the possibilities of modern technology, specifically artificial intelligence (A1). In The Aladdin Trial they investigate the death of an elderly artist while defending the Syrian refugee who’s already been convicted by the media.
