Paul Brett is a top notch criminal attorney who is consulted by Mrs. Cannon-Hughes. She was a nurse by profession who tended to the bedridden wife of Gilbert Hughes until her death. In the time since then, she married Mr. Hughes only to come to the conclusion that he murdered his first wife. Brett advises her that there is little that can be done without evidence but he takes quite a liking to her and they eventually become lovers and marry when Gilbert takes his own life. Little does he realize the consequences of the choices he has made.
Did You Know?
The attorney Paul Brett tells Mrs. Cannon-Hughes that "a wife cannot testify against her husband". That is, however, incorrect and as an attorney Paul Brett should know that. A wife cannot be forced to testify against her husband against her own will, however, if she chooses to do so she can of course testify against her husband. See more
