More than 5 Stars I love the Sarah Newby series I had read the first two in the series, A Game of Proof and A Fatal Verdict, then read several other authors when I realized I had another Sarah Newby novel waiting entitled Bold Counsel It didn t disappoint Sarah is embarking on a new phase of her life but she s still the fierce barrister whom we saw in the first two books Try them, you won t be disappointed I ve purchased the 4th book but I don t want to start it because then I ll finish it I hope there s a 5 I really enjoyed reading the third book in Vicary s series about Sarah Newby Sarah Newby is like many women today, career driven, and in her case, at the neglect of her family Her husband of twenty years has had enough, and he and Sarah are now in the midst of a divorce She is also dealing with her daughter s first year away from home at college Because of the divorce, she is forced to sell her beloved home For the first time in her life she is dealing with being alone.Meanwhile Sarah is advancing in her career as a barrister This time she is arguing a case for a man who was wrongly imprisoned for 18 years for murder Her friend DI Terry Bateson is investigating this old case in addition to a rash of peeping Tom women s lingerie thefts in the area There is also a murder in a sleepy little rural village that keeps him busy.In this novel Sarah also finds romantic interest with a man she meets on the train while traveling home to York after visiting her daughter Will she find happiness I found this book difficult to put down Vicary is skilled story teller While not absolutely necessary, it would be helpful to read the first two books in the series as the same characters reappear in this book. This book lurked on my kindle for months while I passed it over in favour ofrecent ones Now, on the one hand, I am sorry I did because I could have met these interesting characters sooner, but on the other, I can now savour it as being a treasure all the sweeter for waiting.There are a number of major characters, however Mr Vicary keeps them all in line, well behaved and distinctive so the reader has no problem with identifying who is who at the zoo as they disappear and reappear throughout the story.Tim Vicary has crafted an excellent tale, a plot which hastwists than a dead snake on an ant heap Australian speak I was sure I had identified the killer, but in the last few chapters the plot turned inside out and left me stunned.Good writing, superb plotting, excellent characterisation and some terrific imagery ensure this novel is a keeper and a return to the author s work I do hope he is shredding his fingers to the bone on the laptop typing another Sarah Newby story This is the third book in a series by Tim Vicary In this novel, our intrepid barrister, Sarah Newby, starts by taking on an appeals case dealing with a murder 18 years ago At the same time, she is having marriange problems and dealing with her daughter starting university After a visit with her daughter, she meets a man on the train whom she takes as a lover.As with the other novels in this series, the characters are spot on This is set in the UK, so some of the legal terms and processes as well as some of the spellings are different for readers in the US, but they are not distracting and, in my opinion, quite enjoyable.I would highly recommend this novel to anyone who likes a good mystery There is plenty of action and thrills in the read While this is a part of a series, you do not need to have read the first two books to enjoy Bold Counsel.
