Constance Briscoe

The Accused
  • The Accused

  • She was found at the crime scene, covered in blood with the murder weapon in her hand and no memory of how she got there....

    No wonder that the police believe Elizabeth Johnson is guilty of stabbing a young woman to death.

    Only Elizabeth's best-friend, Sam Bailey, doesn't believe the evidence against her. But both girls are ex-cons and former prostitutes and she will have to go to extra-ordinary lengths to prove Elizabeth innocent....

A practising barrister and one of the first black women to sit as a judge in the UK, Constance Briscoe is the author of the bestselling memoirs Ugly and Beyond Ugly. Inspired by her firsthand experiences in the courtroom, Constance has turned her writing talents to create gritty, page-turning crime fiction. Set in her home territory of South London, The Accused is a gripping, authentic debut backed by an insider's knowledge of the criminal justice system.
