ABOUT THE BOOK
The House: Dark Urban Scottish Crime Story (Parliament House Books Book 5)
A maverick lawyer. A grudge from the past. Can Brogan McLane stop an obsessive zealot from burning his community to the ground?
Baron Brogan McLane is a tenacious and well-respected lawyer in Scotland’s highest court. But McLane has never forgotten his humble origins – the rough and tumble streets of the Calton neighborhood, in Glasgow. When his old stomping grounds are threatened by a sinister politician, McLane takes on the biggest case of his life. But he soon ﬁnds himself ﬁghting a losing battle against city hall itself…
Peeling back the layers of corruption, McLane uncovers a political conspiracy fueled by religious intolerance, and an enemy with a very personal axe to grind. William Randal, the Chief Executive of Glasgow City Council, despises McLane, and everything he stands for. This secretive Freemason plans to use a lucrative construction project to wipe out the community of Calton, and send its Catholic residents back to the bogs of Ireland…
Under the guise of a public health crisis, Randal begins burning Old Calton Center to the ground. Out of options and out of time, McLane mounts a desperate attempt to block Randal’s plans in court. Sifting through a web of rumors and lies, he stumbles upon a secret hidden in Calton’s dark and storied past. But will an old scandal be enough to shine the light of justice on Randal and his investors? Can McLane give hope back to the beleaguered residents of Calton?
The House is a standalone novel in the addictive Parliament House Scottish crime series. If you like crusading lawyers, diabolical mysteries, and the search for justice, you’ll love this gripping legal thriller.
Can Scotland’s most determined lawyer stop his old neighborhood from going up in ﬂames? Read The House and ﬁnd out today.
JOHN MAYER (b. 1952) was born in Glasgow, Scotland at a time of post-WW2 austerity. But in 1963 when he heard The Beatles on Radio Caroline, his life path was set. Aged 14 he walked out of school because, in his opinion, he wasn’t being well taught. Every day for the next year, in all weathers, he cycled 9 miles to and 9 miles from the Mitchell Library in central Glasgow where he devoured books of all kinds.
While still an apprentice engineer he was soon teaching men two and three times his age.
But in the 1970s he ‘dived off a cliff’ and set out to become a Record Producer. He built his own record company trading in 14 countries. After a court battle with global giants, he went to the University of Edinburgh and became an Advocate in the Supreme Courts of Scotland. He acted for the downtrodden and desperate as well as Greenpeace International. His specialism was in fighting international child abduction.
As an author, John has written non-fiction, legal texts and articles; broadcasting to tens of millions of people on US and UK radio, TV and print media.
The Trial is the first novel in his Parliament House Books series. Set in Edinburgh, it’s an homage to Franz Kafka’s book of the same title. The Trial sees crusading Scottish Advocate, Brogan McLane, fight injustice casually delivered by Low Life in High Places in the Old Town.
