Synopsis Julian Paul is a Wellington barrister with a gambling problem. Anthony Samuels is a remand prisoner and Julian's client. He faces serious drug charges and is desperate for bail. Julian undertakes to arrange this - for an exorbitant fee - by blackmailing a Judge who had a homosexual relationship many years previously. Will Julian succeed? Will he ruin his future and destroy his family in the process? Can same sex relationships be an expression of true love? The author is a former police Inspector and now a practising barrister. He has an intimate knowledge of criminal law and the workings of the justice and prison systems in New Zealand. The story is consistent with the realities of the law and makes for a fascinating and exciting read. The characters are well drawn and their machinations reveal their true nature. The author explores issues of honesty, family responsibilities and same sex relationships in a thoughtful and gripping sequence of events as the story unfolds to its inevitable conclusion.
