9780002321976: An Abuse of Justice

A child is sexually molested in this book and the local police know just who is guilty. But the rules of evidence in child sex cases amount to a Molester's Charter and to play it by the book is to lose the case. The resulting courtrooom battle is high drama, imposing a strain on the police, lawyers and above all the victim. The author has also written "Riot"(1986).
