"A first-rate courtroom drama." --Daily Mail
"There's plenty of buzz around this debut courtroom thriller inspired by a true story involving controversial lie-detecting technology. A troubled teenage schoolboy is accused of murdering one of his teachers. His lawyers . . . soon discover nasty secrets about his school. But will Judith's questionable past also be revealed when new state-of-the-art lie-detection software is used on the case? The unexpected twist is a jaw-dropper." --Saga Magazine
"Rumpole of the Bailey, Kavanagh QC, Perry Mason--famous fictional seen-it-all, heard-it-all lawyers. Joining their ranks this summer is Judith Burton, heroine of The Pinocchio Brief. . . . An enjoyable, at times compelling, thriller-cum-courtroom drama that asks serious questions about truth, lying and how the justice system should establish one from the other." --Jewish Chronicle

The story is told through the points of view of Raymond a 16 year old, quirky, schoolboy, accused of murdering his Maths teacher and Judith Burton, a very successful, retired barrister who is approached by Constance Lamb, a young and ambitious lawyer to help defend Raymond.
Alternating between time-frames, the story is easy to follow and the characters are well developed. The addition of a new technology called Pinocchio which is a lie-detecting device adds a clever and unusual twist to the normal courtroom dramas.
