      This legal thriller takes a little while to get going but once it does it's fascinating to see how defence lawyers defend those who may/may not be innocent. Architect and property developer Tina Leonard has been accused of hiring a hit man to kill a banker who has just been released after six years in jail for possession of drugs. He believes he was set up to get him away after his involvement after a dodgy deal involving an major development of Tina's that she lost when the bank precipitously c [...]

      Banker Oliver Randall had it all – a senior executive, he seemed to think he was above the law, but he came undone in spectacular fashion. After five and a half years in prison, he was alone; no job, no family beside him, no money. But it wasn’t long before none of that was important any longer…Criminal defence lawyer Peter Tanner was brought in to represent Tina Leonard who had lost her business, her children to her ex-husband and her home with the collapse of Oliver Randall – but it wa [...]

      Hugely entertaining crime fiction. Tanner is a great protagonist.

      Set in Sydney, Australia and I absolutely love book set in places I know so that was a great start. Loved the story and the characters. Tanner, a criminal lawyer, is a complex character but so realistic with imperfections galore which makes him so believable. I love the writing style and some phases where outstanding:In Chapter 13 - “Her voice was gravel, coated with molasses, tinged with craft beer, finished with chilli.”In Chapter 17: “The house was built into the steep hill that rose ab [...]

      I quite like legal thrillers, and when a book is set in a city that I'm somewhat familiar with, I get an extra thrill from recognising places and names as I read along. While I haven't read the first Peter Tanner book, I don't feel that detracted in any way from my enjoyment of this one. Peter Tanner is brought in to represent disgraced property mogul Tina Leonard for the murder of her corrupt banker. There are lots of layers of greed, corruption, drugs and more set in the Sydney dress circle.I [...]

      I’m not sure how I missed the first Peter Tanner book – Cyanide Games which was released last year. I read one of Richard Beasley’s other novels, Me & Rory Macbeath a couple of years ago and loved it so it’s definitely my loss that I didn’t discover the wonder that is Peter Tanner a year earlier.Oliver Randall was a banker that had it all – a big salary and a lifestyle “taking care” of big clients that involved parties, girls, coke. When he’s executed six months after servi [...]

      Haven't read the first Peter Tanner thriller, but that did not detract from my enjoyment of this one.Engaging plot, this is a very good legal/crime thriller set in Sydney. Peter Tanner is an excellent lead character, a criminal defence lawyer who is a bit of a maverick, but well aware of the failings of the clientele he represents. Tina Leonard is the property developer who has been sent broke by SEBC bank, and accused of organising a hit on a former SEBC executive as revenge for his role in sen [...]

      ‘I’m looking for all the truth I can get. When I have the pieces, I’ll start on the puzzle.’Sydney defence lawyer Peter Tanner has been hired to represent Tina Leonard, a self-made property mogul, charged with arranging the murder of Oliver Randall. Oliver Randall, a senior banking executive, had just been released from prison where he had spent more than five years because of a drug conviction.

      Firstly, thank you to Simon & Schuster, and author Richard Beasley, for the complimentary copy of “The Burden of Lies”. This is my voluntary review, based on my own unbiased opinion. At first I wondered how I would go about reviewing this, as I am not accustomed to reading this genre of novels. I was pleasantly surprised. Richard Beasley has created a character in Peter Tanner, who is a hardworking and somewhat unorthodox lawyer. Richard will go to incredible lengths to get an innocent v [...]

      I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy supplied at no charge by the publisherThis is a book about corporate bankers, big business, bent police & drugs.Peter Tanner is hired by Tina Leonard when she is charged with paying someone to kill an ex senior executive of the bank that provided her building company with loans. Things fall apart when the Global Financial Crisis hits. Oliver Randall (the victim) has just come out of jail for drugs, his initial claim is that he was set up.Peter ha [...]

      I'm not usually a fan of courtroom dramas but this legal thriller kept my attention. And the main reason because of the engaging character of the lead, Peter Tanner. He's witty and clever but not one of those hard edged lawyers. There's a warmth to him that cuts through some of the more predicable elements of such books. It's in interesting story of property development and corruption, families and relationships but I'd read another one mainly because of Tanner.

      Very lucky to have received a copy from net galley - just loved this Sydney based thriller! My review is up on my blog: fictionalfix/2

      Peter Tanner has a touch of Rake but with a hell of a lot of class. We want more Peter Tanner please Mr Beasley!

      Got BurdensomeGood start. Tedious after 60 percent way through. Main character was supposed to be smart as and turned into a mega ego pain in the neck. Good try.

      This is the second I've read in the Peter Tanner series. Like the first, this one didn't disappoint and packed the usual page turning Tanner punch.

      Thank you to Netgalley for providing me an advanced reader copy in exchange for my honest review.Pete Tanner is a criminal defense lawyer with a conscience, covering a case of greed, corruption, drugs & murder in the heart of Sydney, Australia's wealthiest suburbs.Pete Tanner is actually a really enjoyable character to read, despite his many cliches. He has a genuine back story, and relatable insights. Not many characters are as well-rounded in this novel.While billed as a "legal thriller", [...]

      This is a most enjoyable book. The author’s interest in and indeed career in law is clearly reflected here. The defense barrister Peter, and his often criminal clients is a common character in crime novels. This one is great and loved the scenes where he was fed up with his clients as they were either clearly guilty or miserable sods.The writing is good, and while the legal detail is densely written, it is both entertaining and drives the story along interesting paths. There is an entertaining [...]

      I thoroughly enjoyed The Burden of Lies!An Australia legal thriller, The Burden of Lies ticked all of the boxes. Following the story of Peter Tanner, a lovable criminal defence Lawyer taking on a huge case - Property Developer v Senior Executive Banker in a murder trial. With everything pointing to this being an easy and shut case, it wasn't. With so many layers to this story - the book will absolutely captivate you,I highly recommend this book.
