Plot Summary

  • Because Rumpole's lifestyle, including his love of fine wines, has left him with many unpaid bills, he needs a deadbeat colleague, Perivale Blythe, to make good on a debt of long standing. The elusive solicitor also is needed by Rumpole as a key witness in a case involving fraudulent mobile home vacation rentals. When even the reliable private investigator F.I.G. Newton cannot locate the slippery Percivale Blythe, Rumpole enlists his wife in an elaborate hoax to smoke out the shifty solicitor.

Meanwhile, Rumpole decides to pursue a solicitor, Perivale Blythe, who has not paid up for some time. His solution is to put 'Fig' Newton, private investigator, on the case.
