Some twelve years separate Friends at Court from Brothers in Law in which Roger Thursby first displayed his ignorance in the law courts. Thursby has grown in knowledge and stature: he is now about to take 'silk'.

In one of his last big cases as a junior he carries a defence through to the Court of Criminal Appeal on behalf of the estimable Swiss hotel proprietor, Mr Glacier. Over an alleged breach of the licensing laws, accused might or might not have offered a bribe to a police inspector. The inspector might or might not have taken it.

The law's delays are very pleasantly increased by the appearance of many choice characters, such as high-speed Grimes, incoherent Crabtree, and omniscient young Anthony Trent, who in three months at the bar has learned everything.....except sense.
