The Osgoode Trilogy

The Osgoode Trilogy was inspired by my law practice in Toronto. After many years of listening to the problems of my clients who, of course, expected me to find solutions, I suddenly felt a storm of tales brewing within. I had my own stories to tell. That’s how The Osgoode Trilogy began.

Conduct in Question

Book 1
DLBRIGHT

Harry Jenkins is a most unlikely hero. He is modeled on my senior partner—a wise and kind gentleman. Harry, the protagonist in all three novels, is a middle-aged lawyer, who feels with dead certainty that life is passing him by. Trapped under his senior partner’s thumb and stuck in a lifeless marriage, he is desperate for change—almost any change. In Conduct in Question, one morning, Richard Crawford, Harry’s elegant and refined senior partner, enters Harry’s office, mouthing lustful fantasies of his client, Marjorie Deighton. His last words are—you have not lived until you have experienced the thrall! Then he drops dead at Harry’s feet of an apparent stroke. Now Harry is free to make his own mistakes. Circumstance calls Harry to outwit a brilliant serial killer, dubbed by the media as the Florist—a sadistic murderer who carves floral designs on his young, female victims. His sadism is heightened by his obsession with carving beautiful line drawings—to rival the artistry of Henri Matisse. And yet, paradoxically, this man struggles to experience a sense of compassion. As well, Harry must extricate himself from a massive money-laundering scheme orchestrated by the senior partners of a prestigious law firm, ultimately connected to the murderer.

The three novels span a period of about eighteen months in Harry’s life. In that time frame, he grows from a frustrated, tentative man, beset by doubts and worries to one who is able to live with energy, passion and conviction. How does this happen? Great challenges have been thrown Harry’s way. All the while, oddly he grows immensely in love and compassion, by overcoming them.

To beat these malevolent forces, Harry has to call upon powers and abilities he did not know he possessed—keen intelligence, intuition and moral conviction. Fortunately, he does not have to accomplish all this alone. Lucky for him, with his wife gone, real love from the beautiful Natasha helps him on his journey and waits for him at the end of the trilogy.
