"The Adam of this story is a young barrister; his Case one of assault in which he is brief to p[rosec ute at the Old Bailey. On the face of it, Adam's case is straightforward, so how could he know that its aftermath was to bring him not only uncomfortably close to sudden death, but also the weary disapproval of the police andthe lofty displeasure of the Benchers of his Inn? Often daunted, often sca red, Adam pursues his own enquiries and is finally rewarded by knowing thathe has assisted the poilice in solving a cruel murder. This is an engaging ly written book of action and suspense, in which the author provides further evidence of his penetrating observation of the processes of criminal law." -from the dustjacket.
