Anybody got any good recommendations for this? I'm only really interested in UK stuff at the moment. Off the top of my head I already know Strong Poison, Paying Guests, Appletree Yard, Witness for the Prosecution. I tried googling but it's all swamped by US stuff and movies. As realistic as possible, please. I like all the detail. Thank you.

Are there Kavanagh QC books?

I think this would be right up your street and just out:

Summary Justice by John Fairfax - our review here: www.tripfiction.com/court-drama-set-in-london/

Jeffrey Archer's written courtroom/legal fiction I think.

All the Rumpole books. Written by John Mortimer, who was a barrister.

Hi i think you would like this, it's got a lot of court scenes in it, it is also NONFICTION, it's called The Mega Pig File by David Jordan
