‘A suspense novel about guilt and betrayal. For fans of Erin Kelly and The Split’ Andrew Crofts
Sophie Angel is the night lawyer. Once a week, she’s the one who decides what the papers can and can’t say.
During the day, she’s a barrister. She struggles for justice in a system that’s close to collapse, where she confronts the most dangerous aspects of humanity.
Her life changes when a wealthy Russian offers her the biggest case of her career, a rape trial with a seemingly innocent client.
But is someone manipulating Sophie from the shadows? With her marriage under strain and haunted by nightmares from the past, Sophie must find the answer to these questions before it’s too late.
This is a story about betrayal, trust, guilt and innocence, played out from the courtrooms of London to the darkest corners of Soviet era Moscow.
‘A gripping read and a warning to everybody who cares about preserving a justice system that retains integrity and confidence’ Annette Henry QC
