Audible Editor Reviews

Actor Leo McKern is the real star of Rumpole's Last Case in John Mortimer's The Trials of Rumpole. His enactment of Rumpole's dry oblique wit, as well as deft characterization of all the other characters, make for a compelling and uproarious listening experience. Listeners familiar with his performance in the television series won't be at all surprised by this talent. In this installment, Rumpole's luck turns after he wins the jackpot on a four-horse accumulator and he is determined to quit the law at "Old Bailey" and finally retire. But before he does, he wants to give his old nemesis a piece of his mind.

Publisher's Summary

London's Sunday Times said Rumpole was "worthy to join the great gallery of English oddballs ranging from Pickwick to Sherlock Holmes, Jeeves and Bertie Wooster." Here are two wonderful stories about the irrepressibly audacious Old Bailey hack Horace Rumpole, including the immortal moment in Rumpole's Last Case when, pinning his hopes on a four-horse accumulator, Rumpole decides to retire from the hallowed halls of justice, but not before first speaking his mind to the "Mad Bull" - Judge Roger Bullingham.
