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.

Based on the BBC1 series Silk created by Peter Moffat.

Based on the BBC1 series Silk, the radio series tells of the adventure and mishap in the Clerks' Room at the Shoe Lane chambers.

As a junior clerk in a male-dominated clerks' room, Bethany doesn't need reminding that her dream to become a barrister should remain a closely-held secret. But when she finds herself in hot water after unknowingly giving a must-win case to a pitifully under-performing barrister, her passion for the law comes into its own.
