Winton Higgins

Rule of Law: a novel

‘A fascinating novel that captures the drama of history’s most important trial, which laid the foundation for international criminal law.

This gripping account uses fiction to bring to life the personalities, principles and philosophies that contributed to the delivery of justice at Nuremberg.’

Geoffrey Robertson QC
