Description:
Fiona Maye is a respected High Court judge, renowned for her exactitude and calm professionalism. But when her husband of 30 years standing shocks her with an unreasonable request, she finds her life in crisis. At precisely the same time, she is ordered to try a new case. It is an urgent matter of life and death, bringing science and religion into direct conflict - and at its centre is a beautiful adolescent boy with the whole of his life ahead of him. Exactly the kind of case where a small error of judgement might have grave and lasting consequences.

All but one of our group found this an excellent page-turner, and were impressed with the author's attention to detail with regard to the legal niceties that the judge had to consider. The book was focused very much on the main character, and Adam, but the other characters were rather shadowy. We sympathised with the judge's dilemma in being drawn to a young man who could have been her son, but felt she should have curtailed his correspondence at an early stage. The descriptions of London were evocative, and we gave the book on average 9/10.
