The Juryman

By Donald MacKenzie

'This fast-paced novel is squarely in the spine-tingling tradition' Guardian

Gerry Steel's loyalty to the man he worked for is total, and he will stop at nothing to ensure that Sullivan, on trial on an attempted murder charge, goes free.

Once he has fixed the jury, and is assured that it will hang, Steel assumes there is nothing standing in the way of Sullivan's freedom. And there isn't - apart from the man himself . . .

Biographical Notes

Donald MacKenzie was born in Ontario, Canada, and educated in England, Canada and Switzerland. For twenty-five years MacKenzie lived by crime in many countries. 'I went to jail,' he wrote, 'if not with depressing regularity, too often for my liking.' His last sentences were five years in the United States and three years in England, running consecutively. He began writing and selling stories when in American jail. 'I try to do exactly as I like as often as possible and I don't think I'm either psychopathic, a wayward boy, a problem of our time, a charming rogue. Or ever was.'

He had a wife, Estrela, and a daughter, and they divided their time between England, Portugal, Spain and Austria.

But when they find a body even the police are too scared to look at, what started out as just another reportage becomes the sort of story all reporters dream of... ...until Carlos pushes for answers too fast, and winds up murdered, leaving Andrew grief-stricken and flailing for answers, justice, and revenge. Caught in a web of dirty money that stretches from the boardrooms of the United States to the death squads of El Salvador, Andrew must decide whether to save himself - or find out who killed the man he loves, and destroyed the only home he's ever known.
