From the Back Cover:

JUSTICE ON TRIAL

Inspector Pitt is enjoying an all-too-rare night out at the theatre when, in a neighbouring box, Judge Stafford collapses. Investigations prove that he has been poisoned by opium. Suspicion initially falls on the immediate family, but Pitt soon discovers another powerful motive: Stafford had been re-examining one of his old cases, the controversial hanging of a Jewish actor.

Pitt finds himself embroiled in a hunt for a devious murderer whilst needing to avoid causing offence to the honour of the judiciary. Adding to his dilemma is the powerful streak of anti-Semitism in Society – a seemingly impossible situation, until the aristocratic Charlotte Pitt uses her connections to weave behind the hypocrisies and reveal the vital evidence.

"Sophisticated characterisation and psychological suspense… the result is first-rate"
NEW YORK TIMES
