The irascible Harry Curry and beauteous Arabella Engineer are back in a new suite of legal misadventures and relationship jousts.
In this final instalment of Stuart Littlemore′s incisive crime collection, Harry and Arabella get down and domestic dealing with a baby on the way and the impending interruption to their lively legal careers. Harry comes to relish a spate of ′rats-and-mice′ cases - the bottom of the courthouse barrel and as far from murder trials as you could get. Between forest protesters, a new Ferrari on the loose and a spot of rural cricket, this rakish legal scion must find a way to keep his professional and personal life from veering into chaos, or worse yet, monotony.
