Audible Editor 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.
