If only some of the stories in this book are true, then the British legal system is in disarray. While the author claims that he cannot reveal all the details of his case, a quick Google shows that he was involved with the types of car he describes and this lends credence to his story. A very good read and one not to be taken lightly.

Chequered Justice
What an amazing book, just finished reading start to finish in 3 nights not bad seeing the last book I read was years ago. I am not what you would call a great reader
Let me give you some background, I was there some 25 years ago working on the Tiga c2 car at that infamous Brands Hatch race. The book stirred long forgotten memories of a world that so few people get to glance at or even comprehend
A story of passion, dedication and outright determination and a belief that the banking, insurance industry and justice system in this country are there to protect us; 25 years on we all know what a false belief that was.
Again what a brilliant book a must read for anyone

This book is almost like two books in one, half focusing on the racing and the other half on the trial for fraud. The way it written makes you care about the outcome of the court trial. The only reason it is not a 5 star is sometimes it jumps from the trial to a racing episode and it can be difficult to understand what period the book has jumped too. Even if only a small percent of this book is true its still scary that this does happen in the justice system. Well worth a read.

Really enjoyed this book. A real page turner. Have saved it for my husband to read! Doesn't happen often. It's a shame that it's reality.

I was sitting in a coffee bar when I was approached by a man who recommended that this was a good book to read.
Having spoken to the man over a coffee, I established that he was in fact the Author and so I downloaded it there and then.
I was completely engrossed in the book immediately and read it within a couple of days. The book could quite easily have been entitled "Carriage or Miscarriage of Justice" How the British Justice system could be manipulated against an individual was frightening but having said that we read every day of some miscarriage somewhere. The book was well written and was thoroughly entertaining, albeit to the detriment of the Author himself and his family who clearly have lived a number of years in a nightmare situation. I understand that he is currentley engaged in the writing of a second book which if written in a similar style will no doubt top the charts. Well done.

I purchased this book after reading the other reviews and was not dissapointed. It is a well written and an unusual story which i found very entertaining as well as a littlethought provoking. You gather from the book that it is based on actual events and if this is true then I feel very sorry for the main character. The driving descriptions are good and I especially enjoyed the Brands Hatch bits as I live near to Brands and have been there many times and been round it a few times. Read this book!

Will Middleton is a racecar driver who gets caught up in the legal system and finds himself on the wrong side of prison bars. The average person has no idea how easy it is for an innocent person to be found guilty. We're all taught to believe in truth and justice, and it's quite a shock to find truth has nothing to do with it - it's all an illusion. And the odds are stacked in the prosecutions' favor. It's impossible for the average person to fight an entity with unlimited financial and manpower resources. It's also nearly impossible to fight the prejudices of a jury who believes the law to be infallible and who want to believe the defendant wouldn't be there if he weren't guilty of something.

Based on true events, this fight to prove innocence is compelling reading. It is an articulate, gripping story that grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let you go. The writing is absolutely convincing and does a fabulous job of showing how flawed the judicial system is. Well done, Mr. Bartlett - an awesome job!

I wouldn't normally write a review, but having just finished the book I felt compelled to recommend this to others. To have survived, let alone to have articulately written about the experience, is amazing. To turn it into a first rate thriller, that captivates the mind and demands that you stay up late into the night to chase chapter after chapter is a credit to the author. Read this great book - if you like a thriller, if you like motor-racing, if you like legal novels or just if you want to learn more about the UK's legal process and all that can go wrong, even when you are INNOCENT. Thank you John Bartlett for publishing this extra-ordinary tale. I hope the public reaction goes some way to help you rebuild your life and get recognition for your innocence.
