Accused of the wilful murder of his terminally ill wife, Sir David Metcalfe finds himself locked in legal combat with his old rival, Antonia Blair-Booth QC. After a tense and gripping courtroom scene, Act I ends just as we are about to hear the jury’s verdict. Act II takes us back in time to the fateful night of Lady Metcalfe’s death and ends with a surprising twist.
