Publisher's Summary

Theodore Boone is the thirteen year old who knows more about the law than most adult lawyers. He certainly never expected to be the victim of crime himself. But then his bike is vandalised, he's attacked while doing his homework and, worst of all, framed for a robbery.

When stolen computer equipment turns up in Theo's school locker, the police start leaning on him hard. And he is the only suspect. What if he is found guilty? What about his dreams of becoming a lawyer?

In a race against time, aided by his renegade uncle, Ike, Theo must find the real felon and reveal the true motivation behind the crimes of which he stands accused.

    Story
    "The best in the series so far"
    Where does The Accused rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ah, you've stolen my headline review sentence. I've only listened to the first three in this series, and you do need to listen to book one to get the beginning and end references in this book. However, in terms of plot and pace, this one ticks a lot of boxes. You really root for Theodore. It's his turn to be in the hot seat and things get tricky for him personally. Usually, he's acting on behalf of someone else. This time it's Theo that's "in the dock".Where does it rank overall? I've got more than 50 to compare it with, but, it will be one that I will re-listen to, which marks it out as better quality than most.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Accused?

    The spitting Llama. It's a trivial episode, unrelated to the main plot and takes us on a nostalgic visit back to kitty court.


    What about Richard Thomas’s performance did you like?

    He's calm, measured, a good range of voices. His voice doesn't get on your nerves and the intonation is good without being totally, like, American, ya know (yuk). I really like it. I can't imagine anyone else reading it. He sounds like what I think Ike (Theo's uncle) looks like.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Even the best lawyers can't always spot the needle and thread when it's them that's being stitched up.


    Any additional comments?

    Good length for a car journey - there and back again! Family listening. Good places to stop and say "Lets vote on what happens next", or "Who dunnit".

    "I don't understand!"

    So many questions unanswered. I don't find stories enjoyable when I haven't been given all the answers.
