Tim Vicaryabout this book: This is the second legal thriller in the series 'The Trials of Sarah Newby'. This book was inspired by a an item I saw on the TV News one night, when a jubilant man came out of court after being acquitted of murder, to the intense distress of the victim's family, who clearly believed he was guilty. How will they deal with that, I wondered; will they just go home and try to forgive and forget? Or will they feel the need to do something about it – to seek revenge for their dead child? And if it's the second, HOW will they go about getting revenge? What would they actually do?
And what if one member of the family seeks revenge, but doesn't tell the others until afterwards? What if that person kills someone while seeking revenge? Should you protect your son or daughter or wife or husband, or reluctantly inform the police?
These are the sort of terrible questions which confront Sarah Newby, the lawyer, and detective Terry Bateson, in A Fatal Verdict. This book was awarded the B.R.A.G medallion in 2012, as one of the top rated indie books of the year. The author Jenny Twist called it 'a superb piece of writing.'
