David Thomas Osborne

Author David Thomas Osborneabout this book: It started 25 years ago, I was coming to the end of a long and very tedious trial, and I thought the jury might be persuaded as well as entertained if I delivered my final speech entirely in verse. Fortunately for my bemused client, they were, and he was gloriously acquitted. My final speech made legal history and I hit the headlines nationwide. I followed this with the publication of a short humorous book entitled No Holds Barred, subtitled An idiot's guide to the art of advocacy, and as time went on, I hit upon the idea of a full length humorous book based on my experiences as a trial barrister but with embellishments to appeal to a wider readership. The 'hero' was Toby Potts, a young aspiring barrister hoping to climb the greasy pole to fame and fortune. My first book was entitled "May it Please your Lordship" and written by Toby Potts himself! My second book in the Toby Potts series is entitled "Order in Court", and it maintains the theme of legal humor based on Toby's trials and tribulations. Book Three, provisionally entitled "My Learned Friend" is in the pipeline.

Although crime in itself doesn't lend itself to humor, there is plenty of humor in the surrounding circumstances and the bit players, and judging from very favorable reviews, the alchemy seems to work. Buy a copy and judge for yourself!
