'An intelligent and immersive courtroom drama, a compelling new voice in legal crime fiction' ANDREA MARA

SHE SAW IT ALL
BUT SHE CAN NEVER TELL

A young black man is arrested for murder. The case against him is strong - a mum and a teacher saw him standing over a body in a park, a knife still in hand.

But his up-and-coming barrister Rosa knows how people prejudge, but most of all, she suspects something is amiss. This boy comes from her neighbourhood. From a good family. So she begins to dig...

As Rosa discovers secret upon terrible secret, she moves closer to finding a testimony that could win the case - or bring the whole establishment down on her.

The Witness isthe start of a groundbreaking new series by young barrister and bestselling author of In Black and White, Alexandra Wilson.

'This is exactly what it's like to be a criminal barrister at the sharp end of Legal Aid work, and an important corrective to the cliche that all barristers are posh, white and loaded. An authentic, tense legal thriller from an author who knows what she's talking about'
HARRIET TYCE

'Her striking debut shows she is expert at using the form to highlight aspects of everyday ethnic minority experience: the drip-drip of countless micro-aggressions, and Rosa's daunting disadvantages when facing white middle-class opponents in court'
SUNDAY TIMES

'A gripping insight into the intricacies of the British legal system and the assumptions that are made. The Witness is a compelling story, told by an original new voice, with a breathtaking conclusion'
Robert Gold

'A powerful and authentic legal thriller . . . a tense, twisty read that highlights just how frightening the legal and penal system can be when your future depends upon who the jury believes'
JO CALLAGHAN

'Fresh, eye-opening, rage-inducing, humane. A coruscating indictment of a legal system held together by Gaffer tape and bias'
TAMAR COHEN

'Alexandra Wilson's tense and very twisty crime thriller is a powerful page-turner about the importance of family, the burden of guilt, and the racism that pervades our legal systems. A superb and timely debut!'
ASHLEY TATE

'A twisty courtoom thriller that is destined to become a TV drama'
