Have you ever met a patchwork man?
Lawrence Juste is one. The QC with a conscience - privileged, reputable and emotionally frozen. The perfect barrister.
But Lawrence hasn't always been who he is now. When he is glaringly in the public eye after his enigmatic wife is killed in an apparently random hit and run, he could do with his hidden past surfacing like a hole in the head.
Unfortunately the past has a way of finding its way back to you, just like betrayal. His dead wife has helpfully left him a sinister resume of his, and she just keeps adding to it...
Patchwork Man is a fast-paced psychological thriller with a complex world of characters and intrigue, whilst evocatively recreating the chaotic and poignant childhood that has led Juste, the patchwork man himself, to its chaos.
Patchwork Man is the first in the Patchwork trilogy of murder, mystery and lethal relationships.
