IT WOULD BE A CRIME is John Whittle's third novel and continues to follow the exploits of lawyer Oliver Rupert Trent and accountant John Robert Lance that began in the highly successful first two publications - WARRIORS AND NOBLEMEN and REMOVE ALL DOUBT.
Oliver Rupert Trent and John Robert Lance became instant friends in grade school during a sandlot baseball game. It was a friendship that would last a lifetime.
Trent and Lance loved sports or to put it more accurately, they loved competition. Whether it was on the field of play, in a courtroom or a boardroom they always found a way to win. They referred to it as, "finding the edge."
Following short but successful amateur hockey stints the two young men turned the energy, passion and intensity they had displayed on the ice to what would become their lifetime careers. Trent took up law and Lance accounting and, by the time they'd reached middle age, Lance, Trent & Associates LLP had become one of North America's most successful joint Law and Accounting professional operations.
Over the years the reputation of the combined law and accounting firm of Lance, Trent and Associates has gained National recognition not only for the practice of law and accounting but for the firm's success in completing engagements having complex issues as well as, more often the not, far flung operations.
The engagements in IT WOULD BE A CRIME are not only extremely involved but include fraud, life threatening events and intimidation at the highest corporate and political intrigue levels.
Lance, Trent and Associates are joined in the firm's work by a former Navy Seal and still will connected gentleman known only as "Bishop."
Bishop and his associates provide Lance, Trent and their staff with the protection and international connections necessary to deal with certain off shore financial dealings and other matters.
Bishop and his people are also called upon when the firm accepts an engagement with a Las Vegas conglomerate controlled by the Mob.
From the first page to the last the reader will be reluctant to put the book down as the reader moves through the fast paced activity to the warmth and humor certain of the characters feel for each other.
