            The official TV tie-in edition of Defending the Guilty 'Terrific, fascinating, very funny' Daily Mail 'Hilarious' Sun 'Gripping' Literary Review How do we ensure that the guilty are convicted and the innocent walk free? Shortlisted for the Crime Writers Award Gold Dagger for Non-...Fiction, true crime meets humour in Defending the Guilty, a hilariously funny and eye-opening expose of the criminal justice system. Every day, criminal barrister Alex McBride stands up in court and attempts to save people from conviction, prison, even a lifetime behind bars. Sometimes it's a hopeless case. Sometimes he has the chance to right a wrong. But mostly his clients are just plain guilty. In Defending the Guilty, McBride takes us behind the scenes of Britain's criminal justice system. He introduces us to its extraordinary characters and arcane eccentricities, and tells astonishing stories of courtroom triumph and defeat. Whether he's defending hapless teenagers at Harlow Youth Court or prosecuting gold bullion robbers at the Old Bailey, these hair-raising tales reveal that justice rarely operates in quite the way we expect. 'Expert, authoritative, hilarious - an insider's fearless account of life at the criminal bar' Craig Raine, Times Literary Supplement, Books of the Year 'McBride details his own cock-ups and disasters with the relish of the born humorous writer. Very funny' Daily Mail 'Rollicks along with a good eye for detail and a neat turn of phrase' Observer 'Gripping, engaging, compelling. The real life of criminal barristers is expertly caught' Literary Review Alex McBride is a criminal barrister. He is the author of the 'Common Law' column in Prospect magazine, has contributed to the New Statesman and various BBC programmes, including From Our Own Correspondent and is the editor of the Famous Trials Penguin Specials series.

            Lawless: A Lawyer's Unrelenting Fight for Justice in One of the World's Most Dangerous Places

            Lawless: A Lawyer's Unrelenting Fight for Justice in One of the World's Most Dangerous Places (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            In the summer of 2008 Kimberley Motley quit her job as a public defender in Milwaukee to join a U.S. government sponsored 'capacity building' program that helped train lawyers in war-torn Afghanistan. She was 32-years-old at the time, a former Mrs. Wisconsin (she entered the comp...etition on a dare) and mother of three who had never travelled outside the United States. What she brought to Afghanistan was a toughness and resilience that came from growing up as an African American in one of the most dangerous cities in the US, a fundamental belief in everyone's right to justice - whether you live in Milwaukee, New York or Kabul, and a kick-ass approach to practicing law that was to make her a legend in the archaic, highly conservative legal environment of Afghanistan. Through sheer force of personality, ingenuity and perseverance, she became the first foreign lawyer to practice in Afghanistan, let alone the first woman. Her legal work swiftly morphed into a personal mission - to bring 'justness' to the defenceless and voiceless. In the space of two years, Motley established herself as an expert on Afghanistan's fledgling criminal justice system, steeped in that country's complex laws but equally adept at wielding Sharia law and arcane aspects of the Holy Quran in defence of her clients. Her radical approach has seen her successfully represent both Afghans and Westerners, overturning sentences for men and women who've become subject to often appalling miscarriages of justice. Motley's extraordinary work in Afghanistan was the recent subject of a critically acclaimed documentary entitled 'Motley's Law'. In the U.S. she has been profiled in Vanity Fair, Marie Claire and the New York Times. Her legal exploits have reached UK and Australian readers through frequent coverage by the BBC (print, television and radio), as well as in The Telegraph, The Guardian and The Australian newspapers and online editions. In addition, she was the subject of an Aljazeera profile titled 'Beau
