Two police officers are set a daunting task but, conveniently for them, deliberate tampering with the evidence allows the creation and framing of an obvious suspect. Is Harry guilty or innocent? It looks as though the case is cut and dried but a brilliant female QC, Irene Yarwood, takes up the apparent killer’s case, offering to represent him. The plot moves from challenging murders to inexplicable mysteries as more sinister events unfold and, ominously, the threat of future violence may hang above her head!Set from 1988 onwards with memorable, if corrupt, police attempting to frame an individual for two brutal murders, this tale is shocking in all its implications.
In every way this is a powerful and gripping insight into the battle sometimes fought by barristers against their clients’ dubious convictions.
Perhaps such unsafe verdicts have also happened similarly in recent times!
