'Remarkable' Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 2

It's easy to judge between right and wrong - isn't it?
Not until you hear a convincing truth.
Now it's up to you to decide...

An unnamed defendant stands accused of murder. Just before the Closing Speeches, the young man sacks his lawyer, and decides to give his own defence speech.
He tells us that his barrister told him to leave some things out. Sometimes, the truth can be too difficult to explain, or believe. But he thinks that if he's going to go down for life, he might as well go down telling the truth.
There are eight pieces of evidence against him. As he talks us through them one by one, his life is in our hands. We, the reader - member of the jury - must keep an open mind till we hear the end of his story. His defence raises many questions... but at the end of the speeches, only one matters:
Did he do it?

A bold and original courtroom drama, You Don't Know Me heralds the arrival of a thrilling new voice in crime fiction
This is an exciting first novel. To start with, it is highly original; what's more, it is cleverly plotted and convincingly written in a voice obviously not the author's own ... I was left admiring this novel.

A startlingly original debut from a criminal defence barrister, this story grabs from the very first sentence... utterly compelling throughout ... it is a stunning idea superbly executed
An original take on a courtroom drama that puts the reader in the position of the jury. Superb character-driven fiction. Masterful.
