Storyline

Rumpole returns with relish to murder. His client is covered in the victim's blood, can barely utter a word in his own defence, and his nightclub-owning brothers seem convinced he is insane. Everything hangs on Rumpole's unrivalled knowledge of bloodstains and his old hat. Written by hgallon
