This is a heart-rending tale of a small baby dying and the subsequent trial when the post-mortem shows that she could have been murdered.
Two sisters are divided here as one was baby-sitting for the other, and it was in her care that the baby died, and thus she is on trial.
Would you believe that your sister deliberately killed your baby?
This book tells the struggle of the mother as she sits through the trial and the evidence mounts against her sister.
The trial felt very real to me.
The questioning of the witnesses and the way small things were built up into an overwhelming case of guilty.
A book where you need to keep on reading to find out what the verdict was and does she admit what really happened? Or do we never find out?
I thought it well written, with the complex science of the pathology explained simply enough for the reader to understand and the conclusions that thus could be drawn.
