Private Prosecution

Author: Lisa Ellery

Publisher: Fremantle Press

Published: September 2021

When sassy florist Lily Constantine’s body is found bludgeoned to death in her apartment, junior prosecutor Andrew Deacon finds himself in deep water; he had spent the previous night with her, making him the last person to see her alive.

Thin on clues, Deacon follows his gut convinced he knows who committed Lily’s murder. On a mission to get justice for his short-lived lover, Deacon learns more about the power and corruption of WA’s underbelly than he bargained for.

Author Lisa Ellery uses her lived experience as a lawyer to weave a story through the eyes of her protagonist Andrew Deacon, taking the reader on an interesting journey into the world of law and order with a distinctly West Australian flavour. This pacy whodunnit will take the reader on a journey of twists and turns and is the perfect read for a rainy weekend.
