Barrister’s novel idea

Look out for the first in a trilogy about a fictional female barrister, set to be published in October. The book, What’s Truth got to do with it?, is by David Crigman QC, described by his PR as “an eminent criminal silk in Birmingham”.

Apparently it’s a mixture of crime thriller and courtroom drama, “together with the back story of the difficulties faced by a woman at the bar”.

Mrs Tulkinghorn has great sympathy – she never gets served either.
