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)
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!
Based on true events, this fight to prove innocence is compelling reading. It is an articulate, gripping story that grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let you go. The writing is absolutely convincing and does a fabulous job of showing how flawed the judicial system is. Well done, Mr. Bartlett - an awesome job!

The book left a sour taste in my mouth about the English/American justice system. The accused has little, if any, chance against the establishment. Very believable. Read morePublished on September 23, 2012 by jdoc
