New photos of David Tennant in The Escape Artist
Will Burton is a junior criminal defense lawyer who specializes in getting people out of tight legal corners… hence, his nickname of “The Escape Artist”. Will is in demand and has never lost a case. With a loving young family and a promotion to Queen‘s Counsel in his sights, everything is on the up.
Will‘s next case sees him defending Liam Foyle who has been charged with the horrific murder of a young woman. Despite the overwhelming evidence against Foyle, Will cannot help but be brilliant and gets him off on a technicality.
For the first time in his career, Will questions the morality of what he does and fails to shake Foyle’s hand at the end of the trial.
Suspected killer Foyle is released but shunned by Will, his attention is now
focussed in Will‘s direction.
Will’s brilliance comes back to bite him with unexpected and chilling results.
A thriller set in the legal world that is as much about primal feelings as it is about the twists and turns of the case. In “The Escape Artist”, the law is not just an intellectual exercise. Scratch under the surface and it is all blood and guts.
