Final Witness

A courtroom drama which combines psychological suspense and political intrigue. Tolkien is a former barrister, and the grandson of J.R.R. Tolkien. 'Highly convincing debut.' "People Magazine"


Simon Tolkien was a successful Criminal Justice barrister in London specializing in serious crimes before moving to California with his wife and two children to take up writing full time. He has been acclaimed as a naturally gifted storyteller with a terrific command of language and a unique perception into the darker sides of human nature. The grandson of J.R.R. Tolkien, with whom he had a very special relationship, Simon Tolkien's writing is set firmly in this world.

"Half Christie and half Grisham -- with a certain panache." -- Los Angeles Times "A legal thriller ripped from tomorrow's headlines ! a remarkably skillful novel, brilliantly conceived and beautifully executed." -- Washington Post "A very British thriller, it deals with the notions of class, privilege and inheritance, but also a healthy dose of earthy sexual tension ! a page turner." -- Daily Mail "Makes you desperate to find out what happens in the end." -- Sunday Telegraph "Simon Tolkien has the potential to become the British John Grisham. Writing in the shadow of his grandfather is certainly no easy task, but with clever plot twists, capable handling of courtroom scenes, and an unerring ability to build suspense, he has proven in Final Witness that he can uphold the family name.'
