You Don’t Know Me by Imran Mahmood - read a sample

Ydkm jacket 250

An unnamed defendant is accused of murder. Before the Closing Speeches, the young man sacks his lawyer, and gives his own defence.

His barrister told him to leave some things out. Sometimes, the truth can be too difficult to explain, or believe. But if he’s going to go down for life, he wants to tell the truth.

His defence raises many questions. But in the end, only one matters: Did he do it?
