Wig Betrayed by Charles Courtley 

Older and wiser?  The charismatic judge of Wig Begone returns in a second adventure that takes the reader into the challenging world of military justice.
 
In Wig Begone readers followed rookie lawyer Charles Courtley as he cut his teeth on the criminal justice system.  Wig Betrayed finds the newly appointed judge feeling the strain of the job and battling with personal demons.  When the isolated Charles is offered a fresh start as a Judge Advocate (military judge) it sounds like a good idea.  But the new role takes Charles and his wife into the intriguing world of the British Military, which includes two challenging cases involving soldiers who meet a sad fate.  Pushed to his limits, Charles faces a professional nightmare, just as his marriage is collapsing.  Can he survive?
 
Author Charles Courtley's personal experiences of the characters he met and the rough and tumble of the legal world have provided inspiration for his novels.  Charles said: "People forget judges are human too.  My sequel demonstrates the complexities of the legal world, exploring both the public and personal strain in the life of a judge."
 
Martha Costello of Silk, Judge John Deed, Kavanagh QC, Horace Rumpole - Charles Courtley follows a great line of lawyers who we love to see suffer for their art.
 
"A great read and worthy successor to John Mortimer's Rumpole of the Bailey and Henry Cecil's Brothers in Laws."  Tim Kevan, author of Law and Disorder: Confessions of a Pupil Barrister.
