Publisher's Summary

This audiobook is a collection of seven short stories centered on Horace Rumpole, barrister and defender. The stories include: "Rumpole and the Children of the Devil", "Rumpole and the Eternal Triangle", "Rumpole and the Miscarriage of Justice", "Rumpole and the Family Pride", "Rumpole and the Soothsayer", "Rumpole and the Reform of Joby Jonson", and "Rumpole on Trial". The first six stories of the group chronicle Rumpole's adventures and attitudes as he pursues his legal cases.

    "Perfect rendition"

    This is a delightful collection of Rumpole stories. Tony Britton is a perfect narrator for this. He has a gently sardonic attitude and a rich voice. If you like Rumpole, this is a must-listen.

    "This is a must have"

    This is one of the very best audiobooks I have ever bought. I loved Leo McKern as the irascible, quintessential Rumpole and thought no-one could ever come close. I was mistaken. This narrator was superb. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

    "Biased review by a Rumpole fan"

    The reader did just fine, and I found everything I wanted in this reading. There was nothing distracting, the audio was fine, and the writing was funny and entertaining. I'd highly recommend it to anybody who appreciates John Mortimer.
