As a Chief Prosecutor, Nazir Afzal’s job was to make sure the most complex, violent and harrowing crimes made it to court, and that their perpetrators were convicted. From the Rochdale sex ring to the earliest prosecutions for honour killing and modern slavery, Nazir was at the forefront of the British legal system for decades. He shares a story that began in Birmingham in the Sixties, as a young boy facing racist violence and the tragic death of a young family member that set him on the path to his groundbreaking career, and which enabled him to help communities that the conventional justice system ignores, giving a voice to the voiceless.

A searing insight into the justice system and a powerful story of one man’s pursuit of the truth.
