Storyline

Unable to negotiate a satisfactory settlement, the libel action against Fleur Mont goes to court. Soames has laid the groundwork for a successful defence and with an effective barrister, has every hope of succeeding. Once Marjorie Ferrar is on the stand, Soames' barrister is able to demonstrate that Fleur's statement that she is without morals is quite possibly correct. Marjorie's refusal to answer a key question from the witness box seems to doom her case. Michael Mont for his part thinks the strategy is flawed and believes they may have made Marjorie and her fiancé Sir Alexander MacGown objects of sympathy. His fear proves to be correct when they begin to receive the cold shoulder from the society crowd. Written by garykmcd
