Charles Courtley, a newly qualified lawyer without a penny to his name, plunges into the sometimes archaic world of the British legal system. After a stroke of beginners' luck - and a taste of good living - he soon becomes an established practitioner in the criminal courts, including conducting military court-martials in Germany where troops are stationed. Horror of horrors, on one occasion he even ends up appearing in a commercial court, a territory as alien to him as Mars! There are all the usual problems of getting paid, not to mention dealing with a dead lawyer who still seems to be operating from the shadows of East London. Then there is the dog whose evidence is judged to be sound, and even an excursion to the ‘wrong’ side of the Berlin Wall for a night out. This is the tale of the early career and near disasters faced by a fledgling lawyer, which culminates in his own appearance in front of England's most notorious judge! It will be loved by all readers who are fascinated by the English Legal System, or those interested more widely in the crime genre.

About the Author:

Charles Courtley (Robert Seymour) qualified as a barrister in 1972, after which he practised mainly in the criminal courts; both prosecuting and defending. He was then appointed a Judge Advocate (military judge), in which role he served until retirement in 2010. He has written short stories; two of which were produced for radio and is currently adapting his first successful novel 'Wig Begone' into a screenplay and also planning a sequel. He lives quietly on the Essex coast with his wife and dog, but continues to maintain a close interest in legal affairs, particularly issues surrounding sentencing.
