Against a background of international money laundering, police corruption and legal chicanery, the story of one man is played out. He is incent, but will he find justice? It is 2006 and Commander Max Hardcastle has left the Navy to work in security communications in the Middle East. When his company comes under threat, there is only one man he can turn to: Robert Abramsky, a brilliant but unconventional London solicitor who relies on tactics as well as the Law. In a plot that moves from the law courts of London to a luxury villa in Spain's Costa Blanca to the casis of Las Vegas, this fast-paced thriller reveals corruption among the powerful on an international scale. Retribution holds a mirror to England's legal system and asks whether it is fatally flawed by self-importance and the inability to judge. Who will find retribution?
Richard Sotnick was senior partner of a family law firm in Portsmouth, Fareham and Southampton from 1970 to 1984. In the late 1960s he became involved in politics in Portsmouth, becoming the city's political leader in 1973 and Lord Mayor in 1978 and 1979. From 1979 to 1987 he was Chairman of the Portsmouth Cultural Festival and a Director and Trustee of the Mary Rose Trust, and in 1985 he was elected an Honorary Alderman of the city. His passion for music, and his role in founding the London String Quartet Foundation led to him being awarded the Walter Wilson Cobbett Gold Medal by the Company of Musicians and to honorary fellowships from The Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Portsmouth University. Richard's first book was The Coburg Conspiracy: Royal Plots and Manoeuvres, the story of how Queen Victoria's uncle worked behind the scenes to ensure the Coburgs dominated monarchies throughout Europe. He lives in North London with his wife, Ruth, with whom he has three daughters: Juliet, Lisa and Karen.
