Longlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger Award 2020 Douglas Rigby, attorney-at-law, is bankrupt. He's just sunk his last Ù200,000 - a clandestine 'loan' from his last remaining client, former bigshot TV exec Glenn Haskill - into a cocaine deal gone wrong. The lesson? Never trust anyone else with the dirty work. Desperate to get back on top, Rigby formulates an art forgery scheme involving one of Glenn's priceless paintings, a victimless crime. But for Rigby to pull this one off, he'll need to negotiate a whole cast of players with their own agendas, including his wife, his girlfriend, an embittered art forger, Glenn's resentful nurse, and the man's money-hungry nephew. One misstep, and it all falls apart - will he be able to save his skin? Written with hard-knock sensibility and wicked humour, Scott Phillips's newest novel will cement him as one of the great crime writers of the 21st century.

Confessions of an Expat is a script about the men and women who travel to Asia to see the world, all courtesy of their native language English which allows them jobs in private institutes and the ability to shape/warp young minds. From the airport arrival to beer-soaked nights, hangover days and the ever present feeling of being a fish out of water. Filled with kind-hearted teachers, spoiled students, horny housewives, drunken wretches, immigration officials, prostitutes and gangsters, Confessions of an Expat is as close to the experience of living and teaching overseas that you will come without actually getting on the plane.
