Powerful, gripping and told in a stunning, authentic voice: this is guaranteed to get people talking.

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.

He says that his barrister told him to leave some things out. Sometimes, the truth can be too difficult to explain, or believe. But if he's going to go down for life, he wants to go down telling the truth.

As he talks us through the evidence against him, his life is in our hands. We, the reader - member of the jury - must keep an open mind till we've heard his story.

His defence raises many questions . . . but at the end of the speeches, only one matters:
Did he do it?
