Notes:
Originally published: London: Macmillan, 2018
I'm a barrister, a job which requires the skills of a social worker, relationship counsellor, arm-twister, hostage negotiator, named driver, bus fare-provider, accountant, suicide watchman, coffee-supplier, surrogate parent and, on one memorable occasion, whatever the official term is for someone tasked with breaking the news to a prisoner that his girlfriend has been diagnosed with gonorrhoea."Welcome to the world of the Secret Barrister. These are the stories of life inside the courtroom. They are sometimes funny, often moving and ultimately life-changing.How can you defend a child-abuser you suspect to be guilty? What do you say to someone sentenced to ten years who you believe to be innocent? What is the law and why do we need it? And why do they wear those stupid wigs?

Terrifying! An account of how Government cuts are letting us all down: victims; innocent people accused of crimes; vulnerable offenders; civil servants trying to hold it altogether. Chilling.

Slightly disappointed, probably because I'm slightly cynical about anonymous books.
