Publisher's Summary

We last left Rumpole in his hospital bed after his sudden collapse in court. Now our hero finds himself in the Primrose Path nursing home - or a hospice as he persists in describing it. Things aren't looking good for Rumpole - until suddenly he begins to sense there's something wrong with the place, and all his intelligence and formidable insight into human behaviour come to the fore again. And once he has solved the mystery of the Primrose Path nursing home, Rumpole finds the briefs fly thick and fast again.
This collection of six Rumpole stories shows the legendary advocate on top form.

Rumpole and Wallis--an excellent combination!

After hearing others read Rumpole, I've come to appreciate Bill Wallis's rendering enormously. He gives Rumpole just the right combination of self-deprecation and bombast--so that I to continue to delight in hearing about Chateau Thames Embankment, the Timsons, QCs, and, of course, She Who Must Be Obeyed.

Superb understated wit. I laughed out loud!

Good story, Rumpole is a wonderful character and well-read. Anyone can identify with this wonderfully flawed, brilliant detective and his evasions of "she who must be obeyed".

Rumpole Wins Again

What can anyone say about any of John Mortimer's Rumpole books except that they're brilliant? Once again Horace goes to battle with the Forces of the Bailey; She Who Must Be Obeyed and assorted bent coppers and devious criminals. You don't need to know the stories - just sit back and giggle, as the wonderful Rumpole triumphs (or doesn't) against the odds. Don't listen in a public place, though, as people do tend to look at you in a strange way when you burst out laughing on the bus.
