Jack Webb wins all the prizes, including Ann Church, a gifted young American who brings her rare feel for music to London just as the Sixties start swinging. Together they make a formidable team as Jack abandons his career in the law to become a TV personality and an entertainment entrepreneur. Their friend Peter Mortlake is the son of a bullying father, and lives in a more private world. He seeks the satisfactions of life as a country solicitor.
Three lives bound by old friendships, until ambition turns to greed. Then everything changes: old loyalties are torn apart. Conflict escalates into a battle in the High Court which sets friend against friend, son against father, wife against husband and sees lovers divided. On trial is the law itself as Peter risks everything in a bid to gain Justice.
A triumph of modern storytelling - Justice is tense and tender, compulsive and explosive. Ian St James at the top of his form.
