Editorial Reviews

Wisecracking Rumpole returns in this second volume of John Mortimer's Rumpole stories. Actor Leo McKern portrays the old barrister as Rumpole's wife, Hilde, "she who must be obeyed", and Rumpole's son join together in a conspiracy to get Rumpole to retire. McKern's uproarious performances as Rumpole just keep getting better. Rumpole and the Age for Retirement is a true comedy of errors that will have listeners laughing out loud and rooting for Rumpole as he gets to the bottom of this mystery.

Publisher's Summary

Leo McKern is Horace Rumpole! Here he reads about the life and trials of the eccentric barrister, famous for his inestimable knowledge of blood stains, blood groups and forgery by typewriter. Witty and cynical as ever, Horace Rumpole will once again delight listeners with his irreverent behavior and legal triumphs. Will he and his longtime client Percy Timson both be forced to retire, one to sunny climes, the other to jail?
