Savour a third helping of Rumpole, the Old Bailey hack from Equity Court with a talent for scathing sarcasm, standing up for the underdog and providing a fly in the ointment for judges everywhere.
Three volumes of short stories have been combined for this generous omnibus, in which we meet our favourite characters: Soapy Sam Ballard, whose puritanism is more than flesh and blood can stand, Erskine-Brown, who specializes in getting caught in difficult situations, Rumpole's wife Hilda (better known as 'She Who Must Be Obeyed'), who tells the story of her own legal triumph, and a great many of the criminal fraternity, whose activities allow Rumpole to enjoy such an abundant supply of Chateau Thames Embankment at Pommeroy's.
