The conduct of the trial at the Ghaziabad CBI Special Court is described in great detail along with all the major persona etched life-like. Many crucial aspects, however subjective it may look such as the adverse bias of the trial judge, the doubtful background of the lead investigator etc are revealed. The book's success lies in not only exposing the the tragic inadequacies of our legal system, but also in providing empathetic glimpses into the harrowing travails of the innocent middle-class, who are suddenly pitchforked into legal struggles like the one that the Talwars had to undergo. Financial problems arising out of legal & prison costs ( yes, one has to pay to stay in jail with minimum comforts & food ) are just one aspect ( many legal luminaries like Harish Salve argued for Talwars pro bono ) , but Sen brings out the tremendous struggles they had to undertake in keeping up their morale, finding support from family & friends & the sheer logistics of juggling appearances in multiple courts & appeals & meetings with different lawyers. Even after the recent vindication of the Talwars, one can not help putting down this book with the shuddering thoughts that this can happen to any one of us & Aarushi's killers are still out there roaming free.
P.S Many people have said that author is biased but this is not true because any normal person would feel bad for parents who are convicted because whole investigation was shoddy and many important facts were ignored ...
A must read for anyone who needs to understand the Indian judiciary system, why the Indian media is considered to be the devil and the villain.
