1 July 1969. The Investiture of the new Prince of Wales.
When Arianwen Hughes is arrested driving with a home-made bomb near Caernarfon Castle, her case seems hopeless. Her brother Caradog, her husband Trevor, and their friend Dafydd are implicated in the plot and the evidence against them damning.
Ben Schroeder’s reputation as a barrister is riding high after the cases of Billy Cottage and Sir James Digby. But defending Arianwen will be his greatest challenge yet. Trevor may hold the only key to her defence, but he is nowhere to be found…
‘How the twist is revealed, how that affects the story is very interesting and is handled very carefully.’
‘I can assure readers a thrilling ride along the way as you immerse yourself in an intricate but always accessible plot.’
‘The whole is a cleverly plotted, well-written novel, and I shall certainly be seeking out more of Peter Murphy’s work. Definitely recommended.’
‘I felt I learnt about a time in our history which I had not considered before and was sad to leave the characters behind.’
‘This novel is a must read for anyone who relishes a good courtroom drama.’
