Oliver Rathbone, Inspector William Monk’s close friend, has presided brilliantly over his first cases as a judge. But the next will bring a far greater challenge. Abel Taft, a charismatic minister, stands accused of terrible corruption which has ruined the lives of

Rathbone realises he holds a piece of evidence that could change the outcome of the trial, but can he, as the judge, become involved? His decision draws Monk deep into a dangerous case that will shape the rest of their lives ...
