A collection of six tales all featuring Horace Rumpole. Characters such as She Who Must Be Obeyed, and the philandering Claude Erskine-Brown are back as Rumpole visits a snooty restaurant, where he enagages in a battle over mashed spuds and takes the unaccustomed role of prosecutor.
Six new tales featuring everyone's favorite barrister, Horace Rupole--disheveled, polemical, and immensely fond of cigars, Wordsworth, and Chateau Thames Embankment. "One of the immortals of mystery fiction" (San Francisco Chronicle), Mortimer's Rumpole has also been featured on the popular PBS series, "Mystery!"
