Pamela Gray goes with Geoffrey Richmond to appeal to the Home Secretary to intervene and stop the planned execution of her brother Paul, Richmond’s former hunt secretary. In three days, her brother will be hanged for the murder of Captain Hamilton of the Royal Air Force, who had been a guest at Richmond’s country home at Retfordshire.
