Evolution’s Magnum Opus: Innocence on Trial by Stephen Roth is an astonishing legal thriller that features a dramatic courtroom incident in a young man’s life and how it determines the choices he makes as an adult. When Tommy Henderson’s mother encourages him to testify in the trial involving his teacher in a case of sexual assault, he is confident that everything is going to be all right, assured by both lawyer and mother. But Lester Mobey, an experienced defense attorney, is ruthless in his cross-examination of Tommy and leaves the boy emotionally and psychologically shaken to the core. Tom Henderson pursues a career as a lawyer as an adult, and now he is faced with a difficult case involving his son. Can he save his son’s life and what will it take for him to succeed?
A beautiful legal thriller, well-written and hugely provocative. This unusually eloquent story is also about the fragile nature of justice. It reads like a deeply personal story, but its brilliant, startling plot twists make it memorable as a legal thriller. Stephen Roth brings into the story his experience in law and writes characters and scenes that are not only believable but emotionally engaging and thought-provoking. The hard spare prose and the arresting narrative voice are among the elements that make the story an outstanding tale. The themes of family, justice, and the relationships between father and son and pupil and teacher are deftly written. Evolution’s Magnum Opus: Innocence on Trial has good courtroom drama, unforgettable characters, and a plot that is filled with interesting points.
