Audible Editor Reviews

Leo McKern, reprising his role from the iconic British TV show Rumpole of the Bailey, once again puts his stentorian boom to good use this tale which finds the salty, trenchant, and deceptively shrewd barrister representing a union boss accused of manslaughter while facing a challenge of a different but similarly daunting variety on the home front: his wife, also known as "She Who Must be Obeyed", Hilda’s "withdrawal” from performing chores.

From spirited debates at Old Bailey to Rumpole’s futile attempt at cooking peas, McKern’s enthusiastic and often uproariously funny performance makes this an addictive, highly entertaining listen.

Publisher's Summary

Rumpole defends a union activist accused of manslaughter, while Hilda goes on strike as Rumpole's cook because of his late hours.
