  • Rumpole and the Reign of Terror

  • By: John Mortimer
  • Narrated by: Bill Wallis

In the dark days of the war on terror, only one man can be counted on to fight injustice, defend the innocent, and insist on a fair and decent trial for all, contrary to New Labour's new anti-terrorism laws. Rumpole's wig may be yellowing at the roots, his gown might be in tatters, but the oldest inhabitant of 4 Equity Court has no use for the word 'retirement'.

Skip this one until they remaster the audio, which sounds like it was recorded through a cardboard tube in an empty garage.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This has ZERO material in Irish and is largely a promotional piece.

What was most disappointing about Pimsleur’s story?

It didn't match the title.

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator’s performances?

No.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.

Any additional comments?

When titles are false, please indicate it somewhere, somehow.
