"A useful read" says THE TIMES review of 'The Secret Magistrate' (17 December 2020)

"In his account of a year in the life of an inner-city beak .... The author appears earnest, compassionate, and keen to do his best in difficult circumstances ... The picture he paints of seeking to deliver justice in a crumbling court system, beset by inefficiency and delay is bleak ... a useful read for anyone considering applying to the bench ..."
