DEATH BY DANGEROUS OLLY JARVIS

John Anderson is one of the North West’s most dedicated and successful prosecution barristers. His career is going from strength to strength and he is on the verge of becoming Queen’s Counsel.  But the life he once knew suddenly comes crashing down following a fatal road traffic accident. Recovering from his injuries, he has no memory of the collision.
WAS HE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATH OF A CHILD?
WHO WAS HIS FEMALE  PASSENGER? 
Facing charges of causing death by dangerous driving the professional and personal life he once knew lies in tatters. Depressed and taking refuge in alcohol, Anderson refuses, in the face of so many unanswered questions to accept his guilt.
He becomes convinced that the gangster he was prosecuting at the time of the crash is in some way involved. The mystery deepens as his search for the truth draws him into Manchester’s sordid criminal underworld. Shunned by his former colleagues, Anderson finds help from an unlikely source, enabling him to confront his prejudices and re-evaluate his past life. He embarks on a journey of self-discovery and, ultimately, the path for his own redemption.
MY REVIEW
Causing death by dangerous driving (Section 1 Road Traffic Act 1988)
A person who causes the death of another person by driving a mechanically propelled vehicle dangerously on a road or another public place is guilty of an offence.
Sentence-imprisonment not exceeding 14 years.
I love this court scene novel, I just could not put it down.
As Anderson a prosecution Barrister set off home towards the M56. Thoughts of his wife Mia. Was he happy, had he ever really been happy? Had she? They seemed the perfect match. Personal details of Anderson’s character make this story seem so life-like.
Detective Inspector Taylor arrests John Anderson for the offence of causing death by dangerous driving. But Anderson can’t remember anything about the accident. He knew nothing of the lady that died. The last thing Anderson remembers is leaving the court. His passenger was killed a thirty-two year old lady by the name of Henna Butt.  Anderson tells the police he doesn’t know that name Heena Butt. Who was she? Established with authority by an obviously gifted writer. I look forward to more novels by Olly Jarvis.
