    General Mike Scott has brought out a book looking at 13 cases where justice may not have been the aim of proceedings. We have just 2 copies of this excellent book, which has been reviewed by untallguy, so for the chance to get your grubby mitts on one of these just complete the entry form correctly.

    Entry form here.

    The competition will run until Sunday 24 February 2013.

    Just a reminder that prizes are to be claimed within two weeks of the end of the competition or they will be offered to the next winner on the list.

    Gloating is most unbecoming.

    Unless of course, in the unlikely event I ever win in which case it will be manditory!
