    A day at the races finds some of the barristers from Chambers relaxing in this intriguing story but not Rumpole. Things change quickly as a man is shot the next day and his wife, who is Fiona's sister claims she shot him accidentaly. Rumpole is leery about taking the case due to the family rule among barristers but he relents. He suspects she is not telling the truth since 2 bullets were found in the body and proves it through cross-examining the pathologist. She comes clean saying she was covering for her lover (one of the losing jockeys that day) not realizing he was out of town when it happened.moreless
