The Davidsons were ordinary people, with a happy marriage and a daughter at dance school. But in early 2001, Claire's innocent accountant husband Matt was inadvertently caught up in the justice system's web, portraying him in the same vein as the infamous Al Capone. So began a sickening spiral of sophistry and scandal that would change their lives completely. In a desperate attempt to pin a conviction on whoever they could, the police (National Crime Squad) and the Crown Prosecution Service began a persecution of Matt in a case that was to drag on for years. It is recorded as one of the largest, longest and most detailed cases in British legal history.
A writer as well as a wife, Claire fought hard to help her husband through his ordeal. Uncovering corruption, confused process and conceit within the justice system, Claire never doubted her husband and Matt never wavered from asserting his innocence. But can innocent people really take on the legal establishment and win?
Claire's passionately told and compelling tale of her husband's trials at the hands of British justice is a rallying call to arms. While it undoubtedly shocks, it also reminds us, when we know we're in the right, to fight.
