The Trial by Rob Rinder


How disappointed I was…

…to finish this book. I just wanted it to go on and on. Not just to be in Rob Rinder's authorial company, but also in trainee barrister Adam Green's.

Rob Rinder's legal background certainly gives this courtroom drama authenticity and he uses it well. Turns out Judge Rinder is quite the gifted writer. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel following Adam Green's first case: a tricky one in which he is to second his pompous disinterested pupil master in the defence of an ex-con accused of the murder of a seemingly exemplary police officer.

There are twists and turns and surprises all the way, all skilfully interwoven. I will forgive his editor's oversights: was stood/was sat (oh so naughty) and a date that was a year out…because Rinder has a glowing future in the literary world. If Adam Green has future cases to solve, I'll be all over them like bees to a honey pot. Or indeed any other novel by Judge Rinder.
