Trial: An Action-Packed Legal Drama
William Harrington - 2018
Richly plotted, Harrington’s novel is alive with a large cast of memorable characters and real, powerful issues, including destroyed careers, political upheaval, racial clashes, and a major scandal. At the centre we have a Lieutenant of Detectives with the job of bringing a murderer to justice, but he's torn between duty and his hatred of capital punishment. We follow the lives of those centrally and pivotally concerned in the case—the murderer and the murderer’s wife, lawyers and journalists, gubernatorial candidates and prostitutes—through the events leading up to the trial, the trial itself, and its grim aftermath. Praise for Trial: ‘Mr. Harrington blends all his disparate themes skilfully, holding the reader’s attention riveted and constructing his story tightly.’ — Publishers’ Weekly. William Harrington (1931-2000) was born in Ohio and studied law at Ohio State University. An attorney for nearly 20 years, he became a full-time writer in 1980. Harrington published almost thirty novels during his career, including The English Lady (1982) and a series of six novels featuring fictional TV detective Columbo.
