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.
