Sir Wilfrid, un brillant et expérimenté avocat spécialiste des causes perdues, sort d’un séjour prolongé à l’hôpital et doit, pour des raisons de santé, renoncer à s’occuper d’affaires criminelles trop stimulantes. C’est à ce moment que Leonard Vole, accusé du meurtre de Mme French, vient lui demander son aide. Bien que l’affaire paraisse passionnante, Sir Wilfrid refuse de s’en occuper pour préserver sa santé et conseille un autre avocat, Mr Brogan-Moore, un de ses anciens élèves. Après le départ de Leonard Vole du bureau de Sir Wilfrid, Christine Vole, la femme de Leonard, fait son apparition. Elle est son seul alibi pour le soir du meurtre. Son attitude très froide et son rôle crucial dans l’affaire font changer Sir Wilfrid d’avis, qui décide malgré les recommandations des médecins de s’occuper de cette affaire fascinante.
