A Hallowed Place

Author: Caro Fraser

Publisher: Phoenix (2000)

A hallowed place it may be, but No 5 Caper Court in the Inner Temple is riddled with rumour and uncertainty. The head of chambers is dying; there is a move afoot to leave the Temple for Lincoln¿s Inn; and Leo Davies, the QC with the charmed and amoral life, is about to take one risk too many. Behind him lie a failed marriage, a string of lovers, and a habit of seductive cruelty which, until now, has left him unscathed. But at least two chickens are coming home to roost: Rachel, his ex-wife and a lawyer herself is ready to do anything necessary to protect her son from his father; and Sarah Colman, who arguably knows more of Leo¿s secrets than anyone, has come to be a pupil at Caper Court. Then there is Joshua, beautiful, uncommitted ¿ and looking for a safe haven.

A Limited Engagement

Author: Tilly Armstrong

Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton (1980)

Kate Duncannon was five years older than her brother, a tall, slender girl with a competent air about her and a great deal of humour lurking in her bright blue eyes, though the laughter which normally came easily to her had been quenched in recent weeks. The sudden death of the man whose confidential secretary she had been for several years had been a severe blow to her. She had both admired and respected Sir Gabriel Murray, and her enjoyment of her work had been enhanced by a genuine attachment to the man who was a personal friend as well as an exhilarating employer. She had grieved for his loss, but she had found that few people took any account of her feelings when dealing with the aftermath of his death. One of the few had been Marcus Findale. She had been surprised to receive a brief note of sympathy from him, since they were only slightly acquainted, but she had also been grateful for his consideration. Now she wondered a little cynically whether he had already had this strange plan in mind when he had written, and had taken this way of recommending himself to her.
