Editorial Reviews

British actor Leo McKern hilariously inhabits Rumpole's character completely, with characteristic droll wit, in this installment of the Rumpole series by John Mortimer. For fans of the old bombastic British barrister, whether from the television series, the books, or the other audiobooks, Rumpole and the Quacks will certainly deliver. In this installment, Rumpole is asked to defend a Pakistani doctor, and antics of course ensue. Not only that, but Phyllida seems to think that Erskine-Brown has been unfaithful. Rumpole navigates these situations with humor, wit, and just a touch of cynicism.

Publisher's Summary

Rumpole defends a Pakistani doctor accused of molesting a female patient. Meanwhile his colleague Phyllida suspects her husband, Erskine-Brown, of philandering. To complicate these matters even more, Rumpole is sidetracked by the romantic advances of a middle-aged ex-client.
