Adam Cape - a young barrister - prosecutes a case of assault at the Old Bailey. On the face of it, it's a straightforward trial but its aftermath brings him uncomfortably close to death and Adam is unable to free himself from a murder that results. With the best of motives, and the most unprofessional behavior, he becomes a bane to police; lands in hospital; is on hand when a bank robbery is averted - and, remarkably, bumbles into the truth of the case.
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'.
