Book review: ‘A Game of Proof’ by Tim Vicary

Heads up for a top class British legal thriller called A Game of Proof by Tim Vicary. It’s the first in a series of novels which follows barrister Sarah Newby and in my view puts the author up there with his American counterparts John Grisham, Scott Turrow and Michael Connolly. Right from the start it had me turning the pages with a superb depiction of a criminal trial and the behind the scenes manoeuvrings of the lawyers involved. The dialogue is sassy and authentic but it was in the constant opening of new layers both in plot and with the characters which truly had me turning the pages. In fact, I read it in a day which is the biggest compliment I could offer. I’m not going to give the plot away here and simply recommend it as a top read not just for lawyers but for all those who enjoy a great yarn well told. You can buy is at
