ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVIST. SABOTEUR. TERRORIST.
Her client took direct action to ‘stop the coal’. When the rich and powerful take an interest, criminal charges may be the least of their worries ...
Cressida Mitsok is a successful corporate lawyer about to make partner at a large city law firm. The only problem will be the partners taking issue with her father serving time for white-collar crime, though no charges were laid against Cressida.
But during her partnership interview, the lights go out — everywhere. Three NSW coal-fired power stations have been blown up, and her boss’s daughter, Joanne, is among those responsible. The boss makes it clear that Cressida’s partnership now rides on her defending Joanne.
Cressida’s hothead new client has already confessed to sabotage but might be charged with terrorism. Cressida is a building lawyer, not an expert in criminal law. As Cressida struggles to get on top of the case, manage her usual caseload and keep her partnership hopes alive — not to mention her ailing love life — she becomes impressed with her client’s passion.
Soon Cressida’s life is being turned upside-down and she keeps finding herself on the wrong side of the law. Could she be more like her father than she realised?
