A MASTERPIECE OF STORY TELLING AND NARRATION
This most engaging novel of a 1960's barrister, corrupt police, and London gang warfare. Downloaded this immediately after Simon Michael's first novel, The Brief, and this is even better, putting it mildly. I felt I was there, living and breathing the protagonist's life, utterly mesmerising.
A gem among the dross of crime/ thrillers of today. It will also be a crime (ha, ha) not to listen to the superb narrator, Colin Mace, who without a doubt, masters all the characters. You live and breathe the moment. A mature combination of the highest order.

Not Historically Accurate but an entertaining read
There appear to be a few anomalies regarding the setting and incorrect references that were not of early sixties life in London (i.e. 1962), however, it’s a really good story and a great performance so these can be overlooked.
