Harry Curry : Counsel of Choice, Stuart Littlemore , single work novel crime
'A class traitor, some say. When Harry′s robust advocacy leads to his suspension for professional misconduct, he teams up reluctantly with Arabella Engineer, an English barrister of Indian descent, struggling for a foothold at the Sydney bar. Together, they wreak havoc in criminal trials involving drug-dealing, terrorism, murder and more. But can their professional relationship survive when personal matters intervene? Is Harry truly fated to live and work alone?' Source: www.harpercollins.com.au (Sighted 20/07/2011).
Harry Curry : The Murder Book, Stuart Littlemore , selected work short story

'The renegade barrister Harry Curry and his elegant partner, Arabella Engineer, return with more thrilling spanner-in-the-works criminal trials, every one of them in defence of clients charged with murder.

Meet the multiple murderer seeking a discounted sentence because he confesses to killings about which the police are clueless. Pity the fisherman who hated the sea, driven to let loose at his landlord with a rifle, plugging him ten times. And share the sadness of a shaken-baby case, where Harry, ever the iconoclast, takes on the conventional wisdom of self-serving medical experts.

Throughout these cases and more, the Curry-Engineer relationship waxes and wanes: Harry sells his Erskineville terrace and retreats to a farm on the Far South Coast; Arabella is showered with high-paying civil work and looks set for a life on the District Court bench. Harry′s visits to Sydney are few and far between, and Ms Engineer begins to find excuses not to catch the little plane down to Merimbula ... Is it Harry′s fate to die an eccentric gentleman farmer? Will Arabella decamp with a suitable Indian boy? Can the pair-aided and abetted by faithful solicitor David Surrey-rediscover the spark that brought them together?

Perhaps they will-if Wallace Curry QC, from the fastness of his top-end retirement facility, lends a hand.' Source: http://www.harpercollins.com.au/(Sighted 07/08/2012).
