A new Burton and Lamb legal thriller
When an elderly artist plunges one hundred feet to her death at an overstretched London hospital, the police immediately sense foul play.
The hospital cleaner, a Syrian refugee, is arrested for her murder after stolen jewellery is found at his home. He protests his innocence, but why has he given her the story of Aladdin to read and why does he shake uncontrollably in times of stress?
Judith Burton and Constance Lamb reunite to defend a man the media has already convicted. Together they uncover not only the cleaner’s secrets, but also those of the artist’s family, her lawyer and the hospital.
A new Burton and Lamb legal thriller from the author of the acclaimed The Pinocchio Brief.
