Publisher's Summary

A mother's worst nightmare - can her son be guilty of murder?
Sarah Newby, who left school at 15, and was living as a teenage single parent on an inner-city estate, has worked her way up to begin a career as a criminal barrister. But what should she do when her own son, Simon, is arrested and charged with a series of brutal rapes and murders?
Has Sarah, in her single-minded determination to create a career for herself, neglected her son so much that she no longer knows him? He has often lied to her in the past, so how can she trust him when he says he is innocent this time? And what should she do when she herself uncovers evidence that seems to suggest his guilt?

Delectable Legal Procedural Story! Loved it!

This is an outstanding legal procedural -- with lots of mystery twisting and turning throughout the story. Sarah Newby is a 40-something who has achieved her lifelong goal of becoming a barrister after a rough start as a teenage mother. Enter a husband who embraced her and her fatherless young son and the teenage daughter they had together. . . this is an imperfect family at best; and Sarah's relentless pursuit of her career goals don't add much to domestic tranquility. She is incredibly adept in the courtroom, even as a junior barrister -- and her skills are tested to the core when she represents her own son in a murder investigation.

I loved the way the author provided insights from the characters' silent thoughts throughout the story and gave us sketches of their backgrounds that have influenced them throughout their lives.

A very good story -- and an excellent story set within the British legal system.
