    Summary

    There are moments when one has to choose between living one's own life, fully, entirely, completely-or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands.

    Sandy Reid chooses. (Failing to choose is also a choice.)

    Summary

    When Horace Rumpole first represented Alec Deacon, the latter was a newly minted registrar, up on charges arising out of a misunderstanding in the gentlemen's conveniences at Gloucester Green bus station, Oxford. Now he's Sir Alec Deacon F.R.C.S. and needs Rumpole's help again, this time on a charge of burglary ("No, Rumpole, that's not a spelling mistake in the charge sheet.")

    Rumpole's only hope of keeping his client out of gaol depends on finding a Will which may have been lost, stolen, impounded by the Samarkand branch of the KGB -- or simply never written in the first place. Fortunately, Patrick Merrick, his summer pupil, knows a girl who may be able to shed some light on the matter.

    Summary

    Wandering along the beach at Deauville in 1934, 20 year old Ralph Lanyon feels himself isolated, marked out by the catastrophe a year ago which exiled him forever from the chattering, upper-middle class English holiday-makers who now surround him. Then he hears his name being called by a woman sitting at a beach table behind one of the grand hotels.
