PRAISE FOR
FALSE WITNESS

“FOUR STARS!… Gripping… harrowing…. Dias brings the same professional expertise to his fiction as Scott Turow. Its vivid characters
and startling plot twists, combined with Dias’s crisp style, make it a masterful debut.”


West Coast Review of Book

“Lively… an enjoyable read, and it’s such a pleasure to unearth a lawyer who can write in real-life language.”

–Marcel Berlins,
Guardian

“Fascinating.”

–Manchester
Evening news

“The pace is breathtaking… Dias is very good on the sinister and disturbing, the dark sides of the human psyche. His is a
name to watch.”


City Life

“The writing has a disturbing edge that lifts it above the conventional.”


Bookseller

“An extremely promising debut…. Dias may soon be a crown prince among all the acknowledged Queens of Crime. He shows style
and flair and his plot weaves its way through society’s high life and dregs in a way that brooks no argument.”


Yorkshire Post

“The courtroom gives Dias—a barrister himself—his best moments, revelling in the slippery games that pass for British justice.”

–nick Kimberley,
Guardian

“More raw and raunchy than anything in American courtroom drama.”


Kirkus Reviews

“Recommended.”


Library Journal
