Joint Enterprise cover Brigid Baillie

Joint Enterprise is the debut novel from GCN’s Brigid Baillie, drawing on experiences from her time as a solicitor and as a barrister.

On a winter’s night, in a grubby alleyway, in a northern town, Josh, a 17-year-old A Level student, is found stabbed to death.
The police investigation soon focuses on the four people who were in the alleyway with him that night – Josh’s girlfriend, Naomi and three members of a local gang, involved in drugs and violence.
The three gang members are charged but the police start to look more closely at Naomi. New evidence emerges which seems to point to Naomi.
Could Naomi be complicit with the gang? Is she a victim or a suspect? Or are the police looking in the wrong place? Soon her lawyers become Naomi’s only hope of a life beyond this nightmare.

The book is available at all good high street bookshops as well as online at Amazon and via the publisher Austin Macauley.
