Storyline

Colonel John Egerton was jailed in India for gun-running and later dismissed from the army following a court martial. He alleged though in an article for the Sunday Star newspaper that he was innocent and was working for British intelligence who then disowned him when he was caught. He specifically accused Colonel Morland of lying in court about his mission and now Morland is suing Egerton for libel. Egerton says he is the victim of a conspiracy of silence with the intelligence agencies abandoning him but Morland and his counterparts insist that Egerton has invented their role to get himself off the hook.
