A good man dies alone in a police cell. How and why did he die? A prisoner is serving a life term for a shooting murder. Good riddance is the popular view. Then the evidence that convicted him begins to unravel. How far will it go? A lawyer is on trial for the terrorising rape of his ex. But which of these two one time lovers is the cat and which the mouse?
In criminal trials and special inquiries the past is revisited. There are liars playing for keeps. There are victims hoping for vindication. There are ambitious and compromised investigators and decision makers. There are competent and incompetent advocates. There are observers rushing to conclusions in one direction and then finding they are drawn in another direction. In this melee what chance has truth?
