Author(s): Sir John Mortimer
A respected Pakistani doctor is imprisoned on suspicion of being a terrorist, and the British government refuses to release any information to Rumpole regarding the evidence against him. The case appears hopeless and it is almost certain that the accused will remain incarcerated indefinitely without trial. As if this wasn't enough to deal with, 'She Who Must be Obeyed' is threatening to reveal her intimate opinions of her husband in a tell-all memoir...
