MURDER AND DECEPTION IN THE OLD BAILEY.
Meet Adam Green. Misfit. Purveyor of justice. Barrister-in-training.
When hero policeman Grant Cliveden dies from a poisoning in the Old Bailey, it threatens to shake the country to its core.
The evidence points to one man. Jimmy Knight has been convicted of multiple offences before and defending him will be no easy task. Not least because this is trainee barrister Adam Green's first case.
But it will quickly become clear that Jimmy Knight is not the only person in Cliveden's past with an axe to grind.
The only thing that's certain is that this is a trial which will push Adam - and the justice system itself - to the limit . . .
Praise for THE TRIAL:
'This is a book that takes you to the dark heart of the criminal justice system. They are all here - the good, the bad, the innocent and the guilty. I have not enjoyed a legal thriller this much since Grisham's The Firm' Tony Parsons
'The Trial is in the best tradition of John Mortimer's Rumpole series. A hugely enjoyable British courtroom drama' Steve Cavanagh
'Brilliant courtroom drama, humorous as you would expect from Rob, and one that I had to read slowly because I did not want it to end' Heidi Perks
'The Trial is whip-smart, stylish and gripping, both murder mystery and courtroom drama, shot through with tension, humour and a dark dissection of corruption, status and justice' Gilly Macmillan
'A ridiculously entertaining whodunit. The Trial is sharp, witty and has a huge amount of heart. You're all going to love it when it hits shelves in June' Tom Hindle
'An engrossing read by someone who clearly knows their subject matter well. I didn't see the ending coming!' Faith Martin
