From the author's desk:
"One of the most wonderful things about writing a book about criminal procedure is to see in detail and its broad scope what is, for the most part, a wonderful balance between the rights and interests of the parties to criminal proceedings in Hong Kong... Those who reform and meddle with this branch of law should always look both at the detail and the broad scope of law before proceeding with whatever well-intentioned change they propose, to make sure they understand the implications of which they wish to change."
