Lenny Barker is accused of murdering Shelley Paulson, who had been leading a precarious existence in the shady world of drugs and prostitution. The barrister instructed to represent him at trial is Cassie Hardman, who is keen to progress her legal career.
Much as she'd love to win a murder trial she sees little hope for Lenny, as the evidence against him stacks up. Things look pretty bleak for Cassie's client, until fresh evidence emerges which suggests that someone else is the real culprit.
The trouble is that time is running out, and Cassie realises that if she is to secure the evidence which might prove her client's innocence she's going to have to make really tough choices, some of which will test her courage as much as her ethics.
Cassie finds herself where no barrister should, right at the coalface and actively trying to secure evidence directly, which ought to be the domain of her instructing Solicitors. But by now, with the bit between her teeth, she's in too deep with her search for a vital missing witness. Before long she finds herself in various scrapes, one of which requires the assistance of her new found friend Alex, who works for the local CID.
Sure Cassie is driven by wanting to secure a just result for her client, but she's also aware that winning such a high profile murder case would enhance her chances of becoming a QC.
Wanting to succeed in a profession which is still rife with prejudice has seen Cassie develop a steely edge, and she's now becoming a force to be reckoned with. She's now in a race against time...
Despite her best endeavours we still don't know if she will secure the evidence which will prove her client's innocence... and the jury is about to retire to consider their verdict. You'll have to read for yourself to find out how it all pans put. One thing is for sure though, if you found yourself accused of a crime you didn't commit, you'd want Cassie Hardman on your side.
I live in total ignorance of the workings of the British legal system and this book was informative and interesting but at the same time easy to read with excellent, realistic dialogue.
The story was believable and I felt at the end that the endeavour of British justice and the individual to find out truth despite all indications to the contrary was a good reflection of how Ms Barnes practised during her working life.
I really enjoyed reading about the politics of Chambers. Working life is so political everywhere!
Well done to the author.
