Kavanagh and Julia Piper defend Paul Warwick, a bitter youth with a long record of burglary for the murder of a popular policewoman who had been working with him to going straight. When a bloody sneaker and the murder weapon is found in his room, he initially confesses, but then withdraws it and avows he didn't do it. Even though he behaves belligerently toward Kavanagh and is generally uncooperative in his own defense, the QC believes him. His colleague Peter Pweter Foxcort opposes Kavanagh as prosecutor. At the same time Jeremy Aldermarten assisted by Alex Wilson are assigned to represent a political refugee from the Ivory Coast in an deportation hearing. Unfortunately both his client and Alex doubt Jeremy's dedication to the case. As a sidebar, Lizzie's septuagenarian father becomes involved romantically with a widow who may or may not be a gold digger. Written by
