This a story of an English Silk coming to Hong Kong for the first time to undertake a long fraud case. As a legal story it is fascinating but what I enjoyed most was the hilarious consequences of the clash of cultures
by Amazon Review
A thoroughly enjoyable insight to the procedures and protocols of the legal system. Most amusing interplay between the main characters and an especially fascinating reveal between the judge and his clerk. Great fun but also very interesting.

Martin Wilson QC was, for many years, in practice at the Bar. He specialised in criminal law, defending and prosecuting in cases of murder, fraud, corruption and other serious crimes, both in England and Hong Kong. He always has enjoyed writing for pleasure but,had preferred to avoid the subject of the Law. However, his latest book, 'The Trial of Lester Chan' lifts the lid on what it is like be involved in a criminal case from the points of view of counsel for the defence, counsel for the prosecution and the trial judge.
He has three grown-up daughters and he and his wife, Julia, live in the Cotswolds
