Summary
There have been many biographies of Judges, and even a few barristers have published memoirs of their famous cases, but very few books written by a sitting QC. This book is not just the story of a young, ambitious man who becomes a barrister, then a Judge, and is involved in interesting cases. Mick's story of a Catholic boy from Rose Bay with no family background in the law who becomes a successful and a well-known QC goes behind the mask and provides a rare insight into the judicial process. Many people may know of Mick Finnane as the Judge who presided over the Skaf rape trials, but his life has been much more than that. He is a man, a husband, a father, a citizen of Australia but also someone who is a keen observer of what goes on in the world
