Sinopsis:

When Basil Merridew and his 'nephew', Nicholas Drewe, arrive in the prosperous village of Tapworth Magna their neighbours are unprepared for the upheaval that is to follow. The new arrivals' short period of residence in the village ends when Basil takes out a slander action against twenty-two of his neighbours and pockets £10,000 as a settlement. This is just the first episode in a fascinating plot which has our two heroes using the subtleties of the law to plan ever more convoluted and intricate ways to make their way in the world. In this brilliantly worked legal drama, see how they find 'ways and means' of supporting their attractive wives and comfortable standard of living without actually having to do a single day's real work.

About the Author:

Henry Cecil, known to many as His Honour Judge H.C. Leon, MC, was a High Court judge as well as a famous author. He wrote during the three-week-long family holidays, which were usually spent in comfortable hotels in Britain. He would sit in a deck chair in a sunny garden, exercise book on lap and pen in hand, writing from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and again from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. each day. His writing career is attributed to his Second World War experiences. Sailing around the Cape on a “dry” troop ship on the way to Cairo, the colonel asked his adjutant (Cecil) to tell stories to keep the officers' minds off alcohol. The stories were so popular that they became a regular feature, and formed the basis of his first collection, Full Circle, published in 1948. Many of his stories were made into films or plays, notably Brothers-in-Law and Alibi for a Judge.
