I’ve got to say I was incredibly excited to read this book as my work background was that of Legal Secretary and I spent the whole of my twenties surrounded by lawyers, barristers and Court papers!
About the book
The irrepressible Resident Judge (RJ) of Bermondsey Crown Court is back with a new selection of cases. As ever, there is little rest for the RJ as he does his best to deal with the churchgoing carer who steals from the old lady under her care, the cleaverwielding chefs wth different ideas about how to make a Caesar salad, the man with a penchant for ‘marrying’ multiple women and the astrological guru accused of fraud. Not to mention the shock-horror when colleagues get into trouble: Judge Hubert Drake for writing an angry letter to the press, and Judge Marjorie Jenkins for storing suspected pornography on her judicial computer. Oh, and the ongoing wars against the Grey Smoothies, who try to frustrate Charlie at every turn with their bureaucracy and their endless quest for value for money for the taxpayer.
I haven’t (Yet!) read any of the other books in this series but I already know I will.
The writing is so warm and very witty. I just loved it. It is also a hugely entertaining book and I laughed out loud so many times whilst reading. This is a book packed full of humour and insight.
My only complaint is that I wish the book had been longer. Just a little!
I guess that’s a compliment!
If I were in the habit of giving out ratings – just to make things clear I never do – this would be a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐from me.
Thanks so much to Anne Cater and No Exit Press for my copy of this book in return for an honest review.
I thoroughly enjoyed every one of the five cases!
