Publisher's Summary

Rumpole is on the job again, bringing along his taste for claret, his penchant for poetry, and his reputation for a good story.

These seven irresistible stories run the gamut from simple thievery to murder and espionage. Rumpole recalls three delightful battles with his arch-enemy, the Mad Bull; indulges his knowledge of bloodstains and typewriters; and uses the refined taste of a garage mechanic to discover the reasons for the robbery of a case of wine.

As usual, Rumpole's biting wit and benevolent ideas of justice push the Mad Bull to the edge of retaliation, and it is only through some last minute diplomatic intervention that Rumpole lives to argue another day.

    "Part of the Book is Missing"

    Great stories (five stars), but the audio ends in the middle of the last story with the court still in session. Then you hear the words, "Audible hopes you have enjoyed this program." Where is the missing material?

    "Terrible narrator"

    Perhaps is it my American Mississippi accent, but I cannot understand one word this narrator is saying. He words sound like they are being belched and his voice like he is in pain. I previously bought "Rumpole on Trial," narrated by Tony Britton, and thought I was purchasing a book of the same quality. No doubt the stories are delightful, but I'll never know if I cannot understand the narrator.

    "Wonderful story- wrong narrator"

    The wonderful stories of John Mortimer were brought to life by Leo McKern on Masterpiece Theatre when I was a kid. Timothy West's narration was a perfect imitation of this. Maybe I'm just spoiled but Frederick Davidson just sounds snotty. Not the dry, sarcastic, humourous old curmudgeon I've come to know and love. Still, the stories are wonderful and worth listening to.
