The third in the Ben Schroeder Legal Thriller series. It's 1965, the British Establishment is reeling after a series of defections and acts of treachery by high-ranking intelligence officers. At first, it seems to be a simple case of libel, but as evidence starts to emerge of Sir James Digby’s association with the Cambridge spies, and as MI6 becomes involved, Ben Schroeder can no longer be sure that he can save Digby from prosecution and ruin. To obtain vital evidence, Ben will have to put his career at risk. But will it be enough?


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. This is one of a series of legal thrillers set in the mid-1960s. The depiction of the social structure of the time and the professional structure of the Bar and its members is thought provoking. Within it, the author weaves three strands together: the establishment figure who appears to have been libelled, the main character, who is involved with a female solicitor an action that could cost him his career, and the defections of the Cambridge Spy ring. The narrative is thought-provoking and well written; the author highly experienced, well informed, and sufficiently skilled to transport his readers into an evolving legal situation.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
