The first in the Daniel Connell series. A disgraced lawyer finds himself back in his native Essex, taking on cases a million miles from the multi-million lawsuits he's used to dealing with. When an old friend asks him to help him out on a hit-and-run case, Daniel reluctantly agrees, more out of loyalty than professional interest. But the case brings him into contact with a corrupt policeman, and in turn a local gangster who seems to know far more about Daniel's past than he should. What was his involvement in the hit-and-run? And what was his involvement in the disappearance of Daniel's mother, nearly forty years ago?
East Of Innocence takes you into the world of the Essex underbelly, where the police serve their own interests and innocence is both rare and dangerous.
