Gripping courtroom drama.
When an intruder fatally stabs Paul Checkley and inflicts horrific injuries on his wife the police are convinced that Gary Trevors is the culprit even though the evidence is flimsy and circumstantial.
Facing a murder charge before a judge who has skeletons of his own rattling in the cupboard, Trevors is defended by the giant QC Ronan Cadogan, a ruthless bully, who is pitched into battle against an ambitious Prosecutor Bertrand Haskett with whom he has a score to settle.
So begins a courtroom drama in which Cadogan seeks to manipulate the judicial process whilst his beautiful Junior Counsel, Naomi Nicholas watches in horror as he tries to reduce the truth to an irrelevance.
Who wins? Truth, blackmail corruption or justice? The reader is enthralled to the last page.
A practising QC specialising in criminal cases, David Crigman takes the reader down the inside track, bringing a new dimension to crime fiction.
