The Aladdin Trial | Abi Silver

A new case for the Burton and Lamb, from the author of The Pinocchio Brief. When an elderly local artist plunges to her death at a London hospital, the police arrest a Syrian refugee for her murder. Judith Burton and Constance Lamb reunite to defend a man the media has already convicted. The Aladdin Trial is extremely well-written and her portrayal of characters is vivid and enticing.
