Book Description

Chequered Justice by John Bartlett

The Indie Book of the Day for 18th of August, 2013!

Genre: Literary, Thriller

Only a handful of individuals ever make it in the world of professional motor racing. Only a minute few of those that do make it, experience the devastating effects of becoming seriously injured, with the inevitable collapse of their life’s dreams. Imagine the trauma and torment of losing it all, only to be accused of having deliberately constructed the event of your downfall …by the Crown!

Chequered Justice is the story of a court case that many say should never have been heard and, some say, couldn’t have happened – and yet… Chequered Justice is a story inspired by true events!

Will Middleton lives for motor racing. More than just a sport, more than a hobby, it’s his first love, his livelihood, and the centre of all his dreams. Thatcher’s Britan is in meltdown, yet despite the deepening recession, Trans-Atlantic, his new racing team, has just pulled off a major coup – sponsors are queuing up, nothing can go wrong now, surely.

The police raid comes out of the blue. Will is questioned under caution and charged with fraud, and finds himself in a Kafkaesque world where his guilt appears to have been decided in advance. How could a riding accident, an insurance claim, a bounced cheque, and a brief moment of temptation all converge into such a nightmare?

Even as his legal team fights for his acquittal, Will knows in his heart that there is a conspiracy, and the roots of it lie deep in the ancient secret society of the Masons. Trans-Atlantic becomes a distant memory as Will encounters a much darker side of life and leaves the glamorous world of motor racing far behind.

Also from John Bartlett, Dark Horse, the Chequered Justice preqel.

Read Sample

Hi, I’m John Bartlett.  I was born in Hove, East Sussex on 19th January 1955 and I’m probably best known as a former WSCC racing driver and team owner in the 1980s. I first started racing in 1979 and raced sports prototype cars throughout most of my career, including Lola, Chevron, Bardon, Tiga, Spice and Porsche, a career spanning some fourteen years. I also had a brief foray into the IMSA GT Championship in the US and touring cars in the UK (winning the Snetterton Willhire 24 Hours) in 1991 driving the Sky TV Ford Sierra RS Cosworth. In my final season in 1993 I raced the Lola T89 Buick Indy car for the Star Union Team.

Chequered Justice, published by Book Guild, was my first novel, a legal thriller that alternates between the race track and the British justice system. Chequered Justice explores the reality of that system and the view of the majority, that justice and law enforcement is incorruptible.  Dark Horse is my latest book, a prequel to Chequered Justice.
