Certain Private Incidents

(2013)
A non fiction book by

 
 
Edwin James was among the most successful barristers during the mid-Victorian period: his rise to fame and success was meteoric and his name was known throughout the land. Queens Counsel, Recorder of Brighton, MP for the largest constituency in England, nothing seemed to be beyond him. He was on the point of becoming a Law Officer of the Crown, about to be knighted...when all collapsed around him. He fled to America but even there the disgraced lawyer found himself dogged by scandal and rumours of his disreputable behaviour.
Roy Lewis traces the rise of Edwin James, the sensations he created in some of his most famous cases and the reasons for his sudden fall...due to certain private incidents.
