John Mortimer's Rumpole and the Blind Tasting has the old British barrister Rumpole defending another member of the Timson clan, the family that is Rumpole and Hilde's bread and butter. Leo McKern compellingly dramatizes Rumpole as he defends Hugh Timson who has apparently stolen an entire garageful of wine. Equal parts mystery, crime drama, and comedy, this audiobook based on the popular television series will not disappoint listeners. Full of wry humor, smart soliloquys, and everyone's favorite characters, this volume is the among the very best of Rumpole.

John Mortimers Rumpole books are always funny and literate but for me it is Leo McKerns incomparable performance as Rumpole that puts certain of them over the top. I have listen to this one more than once to enjoy its humor, erudition, and fine acting . Great fun!
