One Law is based on the original series serial of the same name and I won't go into the plot here except to say that while similar, it is not quite identical. We do get some slightly different information, and in my opinion, the novel is lightly more sympathetic to Mike than the serial was.
It also has elements of humour that did not exist as strongly in the serial, and more time for character development.
Like all the original TP books, this one is hard to find (I know I'm looking for all of them). I have th 1978 edition which retailed for 40p in the UK and $1.15 in Australia. You'd expect to pay more today but you can be very lucky.
