ill Burton is a junior barrister known as the Escape Artist for his skill at having his clients' cases discharged in court and Richard Mayfield, head of Will's chambers, wants him to go for seniority. Will is happily married to Kate with a son Jamie and an enviable life-style. His latest client, young Liam Foyle, is accused of torturing and killing Sandra Mullins but Will manages to get the jury to acquit him via a loop-hole, though he will not shake hands with Foyle. Later Will learns that Foyle has lodged a complaint against him and, whilst Will is at a reunion dinner, Kate sees a man peering through a window at her. The police are called and find a balloon with "Sorry You're Leaving" written on it. Some time later Kate is killed and Foyle is standing at the window. When he is charged for a separate murder Maggie Gardner, Will's rival for promotion, agrees to defend him.
