Publisher's Summary

Rumpole defends Charles Hearthstoke against charges of keeping bawdy houses, in the form of his chain of massage parlors. The case has become quite a scandal since many customers were prominent members of the community and, to Rumpole's astonishment, paid with credit cards. Guthrie Featherstone, who sought a massage for an injury, now thinks that may be identified as one of the patrons, and Rumpole cunningly arranges for him to preside at Hearthstoke's trial.

Excellent Rumpole, very enjoyable and entertaining

I love Rumpole read by Leo McKern and this is almost as good as any, and is very entertaining to listen to. Fun story, brilliantly written and narrated, good to listen to over and over.

An Audio Landmark

As an audio book lover I have found Rumpole read by 'the man himself' the late Leo McKern to be one of the landmarks in the audio landscape.
Is there are more entertaining audio experience than those chronicling Rumploles great wins at the Old Bailey as he teases out some gentle mystery or his lows as his co-inhabitants in chambers, indifferent to Rumpole's talents, pursue their own intrigues, not mention his at times forlorn relationship with his wife 'she who must be obeyed'? A pure delight.
