The Interpreter (Hardback)Brooke Robinson (author)
The most dangerous person in the courtroom isn't the killer...
Single mother Revelle Lee is an interpreter who spends her days translating for victims, witnesses and the accused across London. Only she knows what they're saying. Only she knows the truth.
When she believes a grave injustice is about to occur, and a guilty man is going to be labelled innocent, she has the power to twist an alibi to get the verdict she wants. She's willing to risk it all to do what's right.
But when someone discovers she lied, Revelle finds the cost might be too high... and she could lose everything, including her son.

'Brilliantly crafted and deliciously dark, The Interpreter forces us to question how far is too far when it comes to serving justice and protecting our loved ones, and whether the best of intentions can excuse cataclysmic outcomes. A propulsive and heartfelt page-turner' - Erica Katz
