|William Ment, a High Court Judge has a dilemma. He is an excellent judge and a recognised lawyer but he has trouble accepting anything at face value.

Fortunately, he is not alone and with the help of his friends he always seems to reach the right conclusion, but there is always a cost.
In A Question of Desire he leaves the courtroom to investigate the mysterious death of a friend.
He is obliged to delve into the history of appellants in an appeal, visit a "gentleman's club", go under cover at a game ranch, and track the murderers to a remote coastal destination.
