Thomas Grant has followed his sparkling first book, Jeremy Hutchinson’s Case Histories, with a rollicking account of some of the most sensational trials to be held in Court One in the Old Bailey. As Jake Kerridge remarks in the Telegraph “…the highest accolade for any self-respecting villain, the legal equivalent of being asked to sing at La Scala, was to be tried in Court Number One”. Weaving a spellbinding narrative from the landmark cases that were tried there over the decades after the court’s opening in 1907, he paints a vivid picture of the changing attitudes of twentieth century England.
Thomas will be joined by fellow silk Francis FitzGibbon QC to chat about the villains, traitors, politicians and innocents that passed through the court and in so doing helped define the century.
