Synopsis

The Accused by Constance Briscoe

She was found at the crime scene, covered in blood with the murder weapon in her hand and no memory of how she got there...No wonder that the police believe Elizabeth Johnson is guilty of stabbing a young woman to death. Only Elizabeth's best-friend, Sam Bailey, doesn't believe the evidence against her. But both girls are ex-cons and former prostitutes and she'll have to go to extra-ordinary lengths to prove Elizabeth innocent...
