A London barrister is blackmailed following a homosexual encounter
Melville Farr has a thriving London practice. He is on course to become a Queen's Counsel and people are already talking of his being appointed a judge. He is apparently happily married to his wife, Laura, but now must face off against a blackmailer who has photos of Farr and a young gay man in Farr's car. Farr tracks down other gay men being extorted for money by the same blackmailer.
