    Summary

    Sherlock, benighted at an Angrian country manor while returning from a diplomatic mission, becomes drawn into the dark undercurrents which swirl about the manor's owner, Andre Lemberger, formerly of Salonika, and his extended family. When murder occurs, Sherlock realises that the choice lies between preserving his alias as a traveller in wine and with it the secrecy of his mission, and his own neck.

    Summary

    The old cops always tell the cadets, 'There's always going to be one or two cases that strike harder than the others, for whatever reason -- what place you're in when they crop up, what the outcome is, something about the people involved. Watch those. If you aren't careful, they're the ones that will take over your life.'

    For forty years, Toronto cop Sean has been obsessed with the Jennifer Lowell case. She and two friends vanished on a trip to Europe in the late 1970s, when five friends flew out to England on less than two days notice and only two returned. Sean's suspicion has always rested on Dave Martyniuk, one of the two returnees. But he has never had enough evidence to make a charge stick, and each year that passes has increased Maryniuk's power and influence, so he is now virtually untouchable.

    Three months into Sean's retirement, chance brings a young student to his home, who he realises holds the key to getting inside Martyniuk's citadel at last.

    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.
