The appointment of a new Chief Prosecuting Solicitor has caused outrage and gossip, but no one could have imagined that murder would ensue. Nor that an arrogant and stubborn policeman would make a premature arrest and then set about gathering the evidence to substantiate his arrest. Then a second murder throws the case into even more confusion. Meanwhile, Rosa Epton has appeared on the scene to defend the accused, and she is soon locked in battle with the police and increasingly determined to get to the truth.
Michael Underwood (the pseudonym of John Michael Evelyn) was born in Worthing, Sussex and educated at Christ Church College, Oxford. He was called to the Bar in 1939 and served in the British army during World War Two. He returned to work in the Department of Public Prosecutions until his retirement in 1976, and wrote almost 50 crime novels informed by his career in the law. His five series characters include Sergeant Nick Atwell and lawyer Rosa Epton, of whom it was said by the Washington Post that she 'outdoes Perry Mason'.
