Sentence Adjourned will delight the many readers of Paul Genney’s first novel, Pleading Guilty, which introduced us to that most unlikely anti-hero, Henry Wallace, an ageing provincial barrister at odds with the world and the legal establishment.
Things are looking up for Henry Wallace as his career goes from strength to strength; a major terrorist case at The Old Bailey, a complex and very lucrative civil action, a murder case and even a brief to defend his own Head of Chambers but with his workload considerably reduced by getting a brilliant pupil, Jas, to assist him. As Jas burns the midnight oil on Henry’s behalf this allows Henry to give time to his personal life and the search for a lady friend to replace Pauline. But all is not as it seems, and Henry’s life is turned upside down and disaster beckons.
One of The Times' Legal Books of the Year and a must read novel for lawyers.
