Solicitor Robert Blair is about to leave his office in a small English town when the phone rings. Marion Sharpe, who lives with her mother in a large, but very run-down country house called The Franchise, wants him to come immediately because she and her mother are being accused of a crime. A 15 year old girl named Betty Kane arrived with the police and accused the two women of kidnapping her, holding her in their attic for a month, and regularly beating her. Robert doesn't believe the story for a second and decides to help the women by discrediting Betty's story. But once the story breaks in the tabloids and the nation takes Betty to their hearts, the cards seemed to be stacked against him. This book, first published in 1947, examines the role of public opinion in a small town, the role of the media in forming national opinion, and one man's belief that the truth will always be revealed.
