Colin Stagg spent thirteen months on remand for a brutal murder before a judge threw out the so-called “evidence” presented by the police. The “evidence” in question was the result of an undercover operation guided by a psychologist in which a seductive police policewoman tried incessantly – but unsuccessfully – to get Stagg to confess.
But when the case was thrown out and Colin Stagg walked free, that was only the beginning of his problems. A series of police leaks to the tabloids left the public with the impression that Stagg was a guilty man who had beaten the rap.
Co-written by David Kessler and Colin Stagg, this is a story of police incompetence, tabloid callousness and professional arrogance which destroyed a man’s life and left a murderer free to kill again.
