    Adam Scott listens to the reading of his father's will, aware that the contents can only be meagre. The Colonel, after all, had nothing to leave - except a letter he had never opened himself, a letter that can only bring further disgrace to the family name. Against his mother's advice, Adam opens the letter, and immediately realizes his life can never be the same again. The contents leave him with no choice but to follow a course his father would have described as a matter of honour.

    Hätte Danny Cartwright seiner Freundin Beth den Heiratsantrag nur einen Tag früher oder später gemacht, wäre er nicht verhaftet und wegen Mordes an seinem besten Freund angeklagt worden. Vor Gericht steht die Aussage des unschuldigen Mechanikers aus dem Londoner East End gegen die Aussagen von vier Gentlemen. Schnell wird klar, dass Dannys Version der Geschichte die Geschworenen nicht überzeugt: Er wird zu 22 Jahren Haft verurteilt. Die wahren Schuldigen kommen davon. Vorerst - denn alle vier unterschätzen Dannys Entschlossenheit zur Rache: Er kämpft für eine Gerechtigkeit, die die skrupellosen Täter das Fürchten lehren wird.
