After reluctantly attending a Schubert concert with Hilda and Erskine-Brown, Rumpole is engaged by the trio's beautiful violinist, and he soon finds himself meeting her for lunch and becoming infatuated with her charms. She remembers Rumpole from his defense of a college friend years before and confesses she's always admired him. Rumpole becomes enamored of her striking looks and even goes as far as becoming a vegetarian, drinking water, and wearing cologne to please her. When her husband stands accused of murdering her lover, both members of her trio, Rumpole finds himself taking the brief for the defense. As a sidebar, the overly prudish Ballard has to deal with accusations of sexual improprieties on behalf of several members of chambers. Written by Gabe Taverney (
