Geoffrey Robertson QC is much more than the baby-faced assassin who hosts 'Hypotheticals'. This autobiography reveals a single-minded obsession with fair play and a form of courage not often found among lawyers. Robertson tells the tales of his great cases of his extraordinarily honourable and significant career with passion and clarity.
Robertson recounts in entertaining chapters his efforts on behalf of defendants who found themselves on the wrong end of the criminal justice system, both in this country and abroad. He tells some stirring tales; only a cynic or a reactionary would withhold admiration for much of the work done by Robertson in defence of the cause of civil liberties . . . This book is written with energy and charm, and is great fun to read.
