Just an ordinary barrister defending the indefensible

False Witness marks the debut of a major new novelist, a British author who has combined inside knowledge of the law and a formidable natural talent to write the most exciting courtroom thriller of the nineties.

In the West Country village of Stonebury, a sixteen-year-old girl is found dead at the ancient Stone Circle, her body stabbed forty-three times. One year later Richard Kingsley, wheelchair-bound novelist of sleaze and titillation, faces trial at the Old Bailey for her murder.

Since Kingsley has already confessed, everyone believes him to be guilty – including his defense counsel, Tom Fawley. Yet at court Kingsley, while admitting a string of sexual offences perpetrated against young girls, retracts his confession. The sensational trial begins.

At first, a guilty verdict seems inevitable. But when one star prosecution witness refuses to testify and the other disappears, the outcome starts to look very different. Initially sceptical, Tom Fawley is unwillingly drawn deeper and deeper into the case, until at last he is lured to Stonebury, the village that holds the key to the shocking truth.

False Witness is a hard hitting, psychologically compelling legal drama in which the barrister Tom Fawley finds himself as much on trial as the man he reluctantly defends.

Large size hardback in average condition, 342 pages.
