It is said that everyone over a certain age can remember distinctly what they were doing when they heard that President Kennedy had been assassinated, or that Princess Diana had been killed in a Paris car crash, but I, for one, could recall all too clearly where I was standing when a policeman told me that my wife had been murdered. Bill Russell is acting as a volunteer steward at Warwick races when he confronts his worst nightmare - the violent death of his much-loved wife. But worse is to come when he is accused of killing her and hounded mercilessly by the media. His life begins to unravel completely as he loses his job and is in danger of losing his home as well. Even his best friends turn against him, believing him guilty of the heinous crime in spite of the lack of compelling evidence. Bill sets out to clear his name but finds that proving one's innocence is not easy - one has to find the true culprit, and Bill believes he knows who it is. But can he prove it before he becomes another victim of the murderer. Guilty Not Guilty is a journey of greed and jealousy set against the grief of personal tragedy and loss, with many a twist and turn along the way.

"Listeners who expect murders in horse barns or on racetracks will be disappointed with this new audio mystery by Felix Francis, son of the late Dick Francis, who was known for writing about the track. This psychological mystery, narrated by Martin Jarvis, spends more time in the courtroom than in the world of horses. Jarvis portrays Bill Russell as a good, sensitive man who feels sorrow, frustration, and anger but manages to control his emotions. Jarvis makes us feel united with Bill as he fights murder charges and seeks to discover what really happened to the wife he loved. The murder victim's brother is given an irritating voice that suggests his untrustworthiness. This is a story about jealousy, greed , and guilt, and it's delivered by a skilled narrator who can stir our emotions and direct our perceptions. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine"
