By Mick Collins

Jake thinks that barristers' clerks and Italian-American gangsters are cut from the same cloth. They both demand loyalty, run people's lives and if you want your business to survive, you have to pay them a chunk of your earnings. In the first part of a series on based on the TV drama Silk, Jake inadvertantly continues the analogy, when he finds himself in the firing line after double-crossing Head Clerk Billy.
