A divorce case involving a landowner and his young wife spirals into something darker, drawing Whicher into the heart of the English countryside where he uncovers the most disturbing and destructive of secrets.
When Whicher offers to help a country lady find her niece, he's drawn into a disturbing case of murder which brings him up against wealthy and powerful figures and throws him into conflict with his former police colleagues.
Great characters, good acting, interesting cases and a solid balance between drama and humor make "The Brief" worth the watch. I discovered it on Amazon Prime and recommend it to anyone who likes British law and crime dramas. The central character, Henry Farmer, is a flawed but deeply likeable and honest barrister whose cases never seem to earn him any money. The first season included a rather complicated romantic relationship that was jettisoned in the second series, which I felt was a bit better. Apparently, a third season was not commissioned when ratings declined and the star of the series, Alan Davies, returned to the apparently more popular series "Jonathan Creek". Too bad. It was a great deal of fun.
