Audible Editor Reviews

In this first volume of his classic series, author John Mortimer introduces us to the sagacious, sardonic, and Wordsworth-quoting London barrister as he ruminates on one of his old cases: the trial of the 16-year-old Jim Timson, a member of one of the most powerful families in South London, who, along with a band of hooligans, was accused of stealing a briefcase from a local business.

Leo McKern, who famously portrayed Rumpole in the iconic TV show Rumpole of the Bailey, fittingly reprises his role in this audiobook, and injects this quintessentially British character with the perfect amount of dryness and cunning wit.
