David Eldridge's thriller examining the corrosive nature of paranoia, with Amanda Hale playing a solicitor involved in a case where none of the evidence adds up.
by David Eldridge.
Jenny Lomas is a solicitor who has always loved the law and its certainties, but when she finds herself involved in a case that seems more akin to fiction she begins to question her own judgement. David Eldridge's pertinent thriller examines the corrosive nature of paranoia and the febrile nature of living in a post truth world devoid of both moral and material fact.
