A gripping, propulsive courtroom thriller following barrister Lee Mitchell as she uncovers the dark secrets of London’s obscenely rich
Lee Mitchell is a thirty-year-old barrister from a working-class Caribbean background: in the cut-throat environment of the courtroom, everything is stacked against her.
After she takes on the high-profile case of notorious millionaire playboy Clive Omartian, arrested along with his father and stepbrother for eye-wateringly exorbitant fraud, the line between her personal and professional life becomes dangerously blurred.
Spiralling further into Clive’s trail of debauchery and corruption, she finds herself in alarmingly deep waters.
Can she survive her case, let alone win it?
