A mother’s worst nightmare – can her own son be guilty of murder? And if she thinks he is, what should she do?
Sarah Newby became pregnant in the back of a Ford Cortina at the age of 15. Abandoned by her brutal husband, she left school to bring up her son as a single parent on one of the worst council estates in Leeds. From this disastrous beginning she has worked her way up, by sheer strength of character, to begin a career as a criminal barrister.
But just as her career is beginning to take off, her own son, Simon, is arrested and charged with a series of brutal rapes and murders. Despite all Sarah’s efforts, it seems he is following in the footsteps of his callous father. Sarah longs to believe her son is innocent, but what should she do when she herself finds evidence of his guilt? Should she protect him and destroy her career, or respect the truth and hand him over to the police?
How can Sarah – a brilliant lawyer – find her way out of this trap? Read A Game of Proof to find out.
