It's historical fiction but set in an 80s dictatorship and so the problem is that the main villain (state sponsored terrorist you could say) is still alive.

Mr Mansfield Jnr was due to stand trial at the non-jury court on April 20 on charges relating to false imprisonment and the perversion of justice.
