By Hugh Costello.

The fallout from a murder trial threatens a marriage.

Though Greg's expert testimony is sufficient to acquit a vicious murderer, he little expects that the fallout from the trial will threaten his marriage, and even his life.

    as an expert on memory loss, greg cooke is asked to invalidate the testimony of an eyewitness in a high-profile murder trial.

    he undermines the prosecution's key witness by convincing the jury that we forget as much within 24 hours as we do over a whole year.

    as a result, a vicious murderer walks free, but greg is soon to discover - there's a price to pay.

    a tense, white-knuckle ride as a rather self-satisfied hero embarks, reluctantly, on a voyage of self-discovery.

    hugh costello is an emmy nominated tv and film writer.

    his recent work for radio includes afternoon plays 'my dear children of the whole world' and 'what the bishops knew'.
