This is an enthralling, well balanced combination of highly articulate personal memoir by Colin Stagg and clariification of background information by journalist David Kessler.
This account of how Colin Stagg's life was turned upside-down by being accused of murder by the police is impressive.
Many people were enjoying the fresh air on Wimbledon Common the day beautiful young mother, Rachel Nickell was horrifically stabbed to death and sexually assaulted in broad daylight.
But Colin Stagg was brought to trial on the strength of an artist's impression, but no material evicence, no DNA evidence, and no adult witnesses of the act.
Then an ambitious police inspector and psychologist set a 'honey trap'...with an attractive undercover policewoman, which caused a legal scandal.
Worth reading as a chilling insight into how any of us could be singled out as a criminal by a unfortunate combination of events, slavish reliance on psychological profiling and inept policing.
Judge for yourself how the evidence weighs up.
