Terrific. McBride details his own cock-ups and disasters with the relish of the born humorous writer. Very funny ( Daily Mail)

Gripping, engaging, compelling. The real life of criminal barristers is expertly caught ( Literary Review)

Shortlisted for the Crime Writers' Award for Non-Fiction 2010 (CWA Judges)

Reseña del editor:

Shortlisted for the Crime Writers Award Gold Dagger for Non-Fiction, true crime meets humour in Defending the Guilty by Alex McBride, a hilariously funny and eye-opening Kitchen Confidential 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.

Throughout, McBride grapples with that most important of questions: how do we ensure that the guilty are convicted and the innocent walk free?
