Thomas Grant QC is a practising barrister and author. He lives in Sussex and London. His first book, Jeremy Hutchinson's Case Histories was a Sunday Times bestseller.
Grant excels himself . . . He is a master at conveying the cut-and-thrust of cross-examination, managing to maintain a sense of speed while making sure the reader does not miss the cultural or legal context. His style is drily witty, but just when you start to think he is a bit too detached from what are, after all, matters of life and death, he soars into a rhetorical flight . . .
