Waterstones Says

In this extraordinary pendulum of crime and punishment, retired High Court judge Richard Henriques explores seventeen of his career-defining cases, including the prosecution of Harold Shipman. Gripping and unflinching, From Crime to Crime offers soberly meticulous accounts of these trials, as well as an outspoken and insightful analysis of the current state of the British legal system.  

Sir Richard Henriques has been centre stage in some of the most high-profile and notorious cases of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. After taking silk in 1986, over the course of the next 14 years he appeared in no fewer than 106 murder trials, including prosecuting Harold Shipman, Britain's most prolific serial killer, and the killers of James Bulger.

In 2000 he was appointed to the High Court Bench and tried the transatlantic airline plot, the Morecambe Bay cockle pickers, the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes, and many other cases. He sat in the Court of Appeal on the appeals of Barry George, then convicted of murdering Jill Dando, and Jeremy Bamber, the White House Farm killer.

In From Crime to Crime he not only recreates some of his most famous cases but also includes his trenchant views on the state of the British judicial system; how it works - or doesn't - and the current threats to the rule of law that affect us all.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘If Henriques were a fictional character, he would be a celebrity… but right from the start of From Crime to Crime it is obvious that he has little interest in publicity. “This is not a memoir,” reads his first sentence, and he is as good as his word.’ - Dominic Sandbrook, The Sunday Times
