A plane crashes on London, 523 people die and a wall of silence descends. Tom Harrison, a high street solicitor, takes up the search for answers with relatives of the dead. Out of his depth, he has no idea what he is confronting: a scramble for no-fault compensation by corporate lawyers; an aircraft owner’s determined evasions; dirty tricks of a worried government. After years of defeat, he has just one last chance to discover what really happened to Flight 469 – a simple inquest.
“It is riveting and moving, a real page tuner. I loved it and couldn’t put it down.” Jimmy McGovern (writer – Cracker, The Lakes, The Street and the docudrama, Hillsborough).
“The Inquest is completely gripping. A David v Goliath conflict, it just makes you want to keep reading – the authorities covering their backs while truth becomes as much a victim as those who die.” Doreen Lawrence OBE (Baroness Lawrence of Clarendon).
