When feisty lawyer Sasha Stace secures the acquittal of a sleazy politician charged with rape, it’s one legal victory too many. Disillusioned, she looks to the High Court bench for more fulfillment. But before she can become a judge, there’s one more criminal defense – a trial with complications, a trial like no other. 

The man arrested for murder is her former lover, the lawyer seeking Sasha’s help in the case is the daughter she gave up for adoption over thirty years ago and the ambitious, grudge-holding prosecutor is closely connected to an attorney general who does not want her involved. 

In Presumed Guilty, Mark McGinn continues to delight his fans with scintillating courtroom scenes, memorable characters and ingenious plot twists that keep the pulse racing and the pages turning until the end. 

Author

Mark McGinn

Mark McGinn lives in Christchurch, NZ with his family. When he's not writing crime novels, he's enjoying sport, reading other crime writers and, with U2 in his ear, trying to minimise the excesses of red wine and chocolate on an exercycle that looks like a dark age instrument of torture. Now writing his fifth novel, he has previously written two Sasha Stace legal thrillers, a third is with his editor and a mystery. A short story, Perfect Cover, has been published by Fairfax Media.  During a lengthy career in the NZ court system, Mark had the privilege of seeing some of the finest lawyers and judges in action in many notable criminal jury trials. That experience and his subsequent background in psychological assessment has enriched and driven his crime writing.
