The successful defence of former Liberal leader, Jeremy Thorpe, on charges of conspiracy to murder, made George Carman QC famous. His mastery of cross-examination and speech-making succeeded in winning a string of high-profile cases that earned him the titles of Great Defender and King of Libel.
“Gorgeous George” attracted a string of celebrity clients: Mohammed Al Fayed, George Best, Sir Richard Branson, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, Lawrence Dallaglio, Ken Dodd, Sir Elton John, Imran Khan, Robert
Maxwell and Michael Schumacher. His courtroom victims included: Jonathan Aitken, Edwina Currie, Neil & Christine Hamilton, Sonia Sutcliffe and Gillian Taylforth.
His public triumphs made front-page news, yet this very private man remained a mystery. In a full and frank account of his life, Dominic explains how his father, the ambitious boy from Blackpool, fought to become the star of the Bar. In a compelling account, he reveals the story of a man whose private life was as extraordinary as his public life was successful.
