Charged with the murder of Emily French, the good-natured Leonard Vole approaches Sir Wilfrid Robarts (QC) and Mr Mayhew to help him clear his name. Emily was a wealthy older lady who had taken Leonard under her wing and, after it is discovered that she left all of her money to him, doubt is cast upon the young man’s alibi. When Leonard’s wife, Romaine, agrees to testify, she does so –shockingly - as a witness for the prosecution. But, can she be trusted? What are her motivations for doing so? And, can Sir Wilfrid Robarts (QC) successively crack the case?
