The Grand Master returns in prize-winning form Geoffrey Mason did it for the money. It is obvious that his client Julian Trent is guilty, and it's about time rich boy Trent is taught a lesson for his violent ways. The only thing still bothering Geoff is that he is going to miss participating in the Foxhunter Steeplechase' the "Gold Cup" for amateur riders'because the trial has taken a lot longer than expected. Although still an amateur, Geoff is well known (as "Perry" Mason) among the pro riders, including Steve Mitchell and Scot Barlow'arguably the two top pros. So when Scot Barlow is murdered'with Mitchell's pitchfork nonetheless'Geoff finds himself pulled into the case as a junior barrister.
