Overview

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?

Sarah Newby has had to fight to get to be a barrister. She is determined to be the top barrister, but that focus can lead to other areas lacking in her life. The story stars in the court room where Sarah is representing Gary Harker who is accused of raping Sharon Gilbert. We learn about Detective Terry Bateson, who is the one that is charging Gary with the rape along with the murder and rape of two other women. Then Sarah learns that her son has been charged with murder and rape. Sarah starts questioning herself. Has she been too focused on her own career and not enough on her son? He son says he is innocent but then again he has been caught lying to her in the recent past. Now Sarah needs to step up as a mother and barrister to find out the truth and either convict or protect her son. I have to admit that I’m not one that goes for legal dramas. But this book just sucked me right in. I couldn’t put the book down when Sarah had to get down to the truth of if her son did or didn’t commit murder and rape. You can tell Tim Vicary, is a great author just by the description of events in the book. At times I will admit that some stuff could have been over described, but you still felt like you were right there in the court room. This is a great mystery that you don’t want to miss. Don’t judge the book based on the court room drama. This is a breath of fresh air for that genera.
