Stripped across the week psychological thriller Injustice comes from the pen of the ever dependable Anthny Horowitz. Following a nervous breakdown William Travers has given up his high flying life as a top London barrister and moved his family to the wilds of Suffolk where his wife now works in a young offenders institute. Williams life is thrown upside down once again though when an old friend Martin Newell asks William to defend him against murder charges for a killing which he swears he did not commit. William returns to London and his old chambers, and finds past allegiances being tested and his family’s fragile peace put under threat.
Back in Suffolk, a body is discovered on a deserted farm and DI Mark Wenborn is assigned his biggest case yet. William and Mark are two very different characters from very different worlds, but their destinies soon become intertwined in a gripping, winner-takes-all game of cat and mouse.
A fabulous cast is involved here (watch out for the all too rarely seen on screen these days Imogen Stubbs), the plot is like something Robert Goddard might write a novel about. Horowitz makes it plain that this is no run of the mill court room drama though saying “Injustice is not a legal drama. In many ways it’s about a society in which law has ceased to function. Both Travers and his nemesis – Detective Sergeant Wenborn – operate according to their own set of rules and in the end I see the series as a duel between the two of them as they follow a tangled path of murder and conspiracy.”
