Roger Backhouse QC – Yusef Abdullahi’s lead barrister

This thoroughly researched book reveals a very disturbing account of how a major murder inquiry can go seriously wrong by the failure of those investigating to keep a level head and to remain sceptical of evidence that may be tainted. It also shows the fearsome dangers of over reliance on the old fashioned methods of interrogation.

As one of the lawyers involved in the two trials it was a disturbing experience. This book should be read by all those people involved in the criminal justice system and above all by those who wish to see the restoration of total confidence in that system.
