Rumpole and the younger generation. The Montagues and the Capulets come to mind as Rumpole finds himself up against the Timsons and the Malloys. Young Jim Timson has been accused of robbery with violence -- and his only alibi lies with a son of the Malloy family, a family with whom the Timson family has had a long-standing feud. Rumpole is perturbed by the wayward youth but more perturbed with the question of who will be the new head of chambers. Rumpole and the honourable member. Rumpole is unhappy to learn that he is to be defending a rape case, until he discovers there is a decent fee attached. A local politician stands accused -- a charge he denies -- admitting only to consensual sex with a fellow party worker. Rumpole's research uncovers a strong defense which may, however, be undermined by the defendant. Meanwhile, rumpole's favorite clerk has been accused of stealing from the petty cash. This may not be Rumpole's day.
