This review is from: Defending the Guilty: Truth and Lies in the Criminal Courtroom (Paperback)
As a regular professional witness in Crown Court, Coroner's court and Family Division of the High Court I found this entertaining and to a certain extent educational. The side notes are interesting although I did not check the references for accuracy. Overall I would recommend this book. It is light-weight but is intended to be so. It is easy to pick up/put down and I had it finished in three days. I would like to have known the final "happy outcome" which I presume was the case. There are two locations where time vanishes (slowly) with no uitility; one is at airports and the other is in courts of law. This was illustrated time and again in this book and I can vouch for the accuracy of this. The author conveys the heirarchy of the legal profession in a way that is fully understandable and I would say well illustrated. The book is well written albeit produces little new or taxing vocabulary. The "bad language" was not in my view particularly offensive and in today's world has become background. This is a book that I enjoyed and was worth buying.
