Just finished reading "Chequered Justice" and have to say, "bravo" to John Bartlett -- you are a hero, surviving a version of the events portrayed in your novel. Thank you for perservering and for telling your story; I can't wait to read Mary's (Beth's) version of events when published!

I picked up this eBook after meeting the author at a book signing in Costco, Reading before Christmas. I was dubious, not being overly familiar with the British judicial system, however, as a huge fan of American crime drama (Law & Order, NCIS, Suits, etc.) thought I would give it a try. I was not disappointed.

It was a fast read and did well not to get too bogged down with legal jargon. The descriptions of the venues, from the Old Granary to Wandsworth to Ford were vivid and set my imagination firmly within the locations, with all the empathetic pangs I'd expect from a gripping novel.

Additionally, the book was fairly well edited; I found only a handful of grammatical and editorial mistakes; not too many to cause the pedant in me to disrupt my enjoyment of the tale. Most notably, the repetition of the entire second paragraph of chapter 8 caused the most angst, but only for a moment.

If you like John Grisham, Patricia Cornwell, Tom Clancy, get ready to add John Bartlett to that list!

Chequered Justice is based on a series of true events that lead to the demise of life as Will Middleton knows it. The downhill slide starts with a police raid, followed by charges of fraud, a trial and a prison sentence. Some would think that this is justice served, but the charges were false, and should never have been brought.

Chequered Justice follows 'Middleton's'fight to be found not guilty, and then to appeal the decision.

This book highlights what is wrong with the 'justice' system that is used in Britain, and has filtered through to many countries of the British Commonwealth. It also shows the reader that the 'Old Boy's' network is alive and well. I think it should be compulsory reading for anyone who believes that only the guilty go to jail.

It is very well written, and was hard to put down once I started. I particularly liked the quotations at the beginning of each chapter, and have another one to add "Instead of investigating, Police start with the answer and collect evidence to match it". - Paul Davison QC (New Zealand)

Very occasionally a book comes along that is hard to put down, and this is one of those. It's really a true story masquerading as a fiction, and that's what gives it its raw emotional power: it seems these very shocking events really happened to the author. The story isn't shocking because it's violent - as too many thrillers often are - but because emotional impact of the Kafkaesque web of injustice in which the narrator and his family are trapped. If all this is true - as it appears to be - it's very scarey, much more so than if it was just imagined. The story is compulsive for the simple, obvious reason you really want to know what happened next, and how these bad things can be put right, if they ever can. I spent the whole day reading it for just that reason. (I also know a lot more about motor racing now than I did before!)

Before reading this book, I, in common with the majority of British people, considered our system of justice and the law enforcement to be incorruptable.

This book in an articulate and exciting way admirably exposes the manner in which material, events, evidence, officers of the law and the judicial system can be manipulated and a person even eliminated to extract revenge on a person who inadvertantly had offended the powerful.

A brilliant fast moving and gripping story which could be, and sadly probably is, true. The website [...] gives an excellent preview of this author's first novel. Despite dyslexia the book is well constructed and the phraseology is excellent. An expose of masonic influence in the police and judiciary at a high level. My faith in the English system of criminal investigation, prosecution and court proceedings has been shattered.

I wouldn't normally write a review, but having just finished the book I felt compelled to recommend this to others. To have survived, let alone to have articulately written about the experience, is amazing. To turn it into a first rate thriller, that captivates the mind and demands that you stay up late into the night to chase chapter after chapter is a credit to the author. Read this great book - if you like a thriller, if you like motor-racing, if you like legal novels or just if you want to learn more about the UK's legal process and all that can go wrong, even when you are INNOCENT. Thank you John Bartlett for publishing this extra-ordinary tale. I hope the public reaction goes some way to help you rebuild your life and get recognition for your innocence.
