Secondhand. Good condition. General wear to book corners and edges.
The West Coast drug scene is set to explode. Dealers from Revenant's Beach are running for cover and supply lines are being shut off. The cause - allegations affecting the legal system at every level. The next step ...
In this, his eighth novel, prize-winning author Nicholas Hasluck tells a gripping tale that gradually discloses the truth about the legal system, the way in which facts can be transformed by skilful advocacy, the risk of justice not being done.
And in his portrayal of Henri Revenant, the mysterious architect whose words illuminate the story, Hasluck shows how the law in action is inevitably influenced by politics, by wagging tongues, by rumours and half-truths ... by time and chance. (publisher blurb)
