Publisher Description

Andrew Fraser's bestselling and controversial true-crime memoirs are now being adapted into an exciting new television series called Killing Time! From 1975 to 2001, Andrew Fraser was a leading criminal solicitor with a successful national practice. And then it all went horribly wrong. In 1999 he was charged with being knowingly concerned with the importation of a commercial quantity of cocaine. Fraser pleaded guilty to a charge of possessing, trafficking a small quantity and to using cocaine over a period of time. He was sentenced to seven years in maximum security prison. Court in the Middle describes his early years - growing up in a family of lawyers; running hard to build a criminal law practice; his successful years with a national practice and defending high profile, sometimes notorious clients including Allan Bond, Laurie Connell, the Pettingill Family and the Morans; his relationship with cocaine; addiction and deals; crime and punishment and the shocking details of his time spent in a maximum security prison.

Esan Pilai ,

Wonderful book!

Epic narration and an eye opening read!

Fabulous, entertaining and a worry if all is true

I watched the tv series, killing time, and gained a liking for Frasier's character. Feeling similar in manny ways, attitudes that were taken in many situations, seemed credible, and at most times even admirable. At starting reading i was a little apprehensive about much of the corruption that was cited in the book, but now having finished it, i have little doubt to its accuracy, given knowledge from police i have known, "blokes" who i have known, my " faith" from experience in public service, and my professional skepticism and general cynicism

I too challenge government to have Royal Commission into the corrections system, from police who arrest, to the medical staff who serve in the prisons, and everything in between.

Well done Andrew, keep writing and i will keep reading....and worrying for the state, and the public there in.

Poorly written, but a gripping story nonetheless.

If you liked the series Killing Time, it's likely you'll be interested in this collection of memoirs. It's oddly written however, really a stream of consciousness without much in the way of structure. Incredibly, it's also full of typographical errors and grammatical inconsistencies, but who ever let those pesky issues get in the way of a good yarn!?
