Chris Laker is what you might call a layabout. He has drifted from job to job and when he’s been out of work his loyal girlfriend Janey has supported him. Now Chris is in real trouble. He is on trial for the murder of a rich businessman – and the evidence is piled up against him. His Smith and Wesson has been used to kill Gheorge Dimitiu, and his fingerprint is on the gun. Chris swears he is innocent – but will the jury at the Old Bailey believe him?
