A satire on the nature of justice and the legal system. A 17 year old is accused of murder. He had a motive and the deceased's blood on his clothes. The police have his confession. The case seems a foregone conclusion. Sir John Mortimer QC, the acclaimed writer of Rumpole of the Bailey series of novels, goes back to court with a drama set in the hushed corridors and dusty chambers of the legal profession. His humorous insights brilliantly expose the dilemmas and deceits of the criminals - and of the judges they must face.
