Abstract:

A sequel to A Higher Duty, from an author whose extensive legal experience provides authenticity to his legal thrillers 1964 brings fresh challenges to Ben Schroeder, now a member of chambers headed by Bernard Wesley Queen's Counsel (QC). A courting couple have been attacked on the banks of the River Ouse near Ely. The news of beating, rape, and murder soon become sensational headlines. Schroeder is called to assist the defense but lead QC, Martin Hardcastle, has a reputation that goes before him. As the pressure mounts, talk of alcoholism fills the courtroom with Hardcastle's repeated absences and seemingly reckless actions risking the support of his team. And when a shock decision is made, it is left to Ben and his colleague, Jess, to deal with the consequences. With the case drawing mass media attention and public opinion turning against capital punishment, Schroeder must once again face the prejudice, scandal, and corruption of the brutal courtroom reality and its verdict on the fate of a man's life.
