Books Info:

Wig Betrayed free pdf Wig Betrayed is a novel about Charles Courtley's continuing career as a military judge after practising at the Bar for many years. From the beginning, Charles has to contend with the loneliness of the job which leads to the acute personal problems that ultimately destroy him. In the sequel to Wig Begone, not only does Charles have to tussle with the pomposity and pedantry of his nominal boss, the head of the military judicial system, but also the petty rules and regulations of army life on a British military garrison in Germany where he is resident with his wife, Andrea. After helping another colleague to sort out his personal problems abroad, Charles's marriage, already under strain, collapses when his wife leaves him for a lover in England. Alone once more, Charles finds himself dealing with the most challenging cases of his entire career. Two soldiers meet a sad fate as a result of his decisions in their cases and shouldering that burden grinds him down in an increasingly hostile military environment. The stimulating account of Charles Courtley demonstrates the complexities of the legal world, exploring both the public and personal strain in the life of a judge. This book would be of particular interest to law professionals for its humorous quirks and political quibbles. Author Charles has been inspired by the work of Henry Cecil, John Mortimer and Tim Kevan, who recently wrote the novels Law and Disorder and Law and Peace.
