On the home front, defence lawyer Robbie Munro is looking forward to the birth of his second child, while at work he's called to defend George `Genghis' McCann on a charge of burglary, and Oscar `the Showman' Bowman, snooker champion, on one of betting fraud. Genghis has stolen - and lost - a priceless masterpiece, while Oscar doesn't seem to have a defence of any kind. With another mouth to feed and promises of great rewards if he finds both painting and defence, Robbie has never been more tempted to fix the legal odds in his favour.
