Publisher's Summary

Horace Rumpole, the Wordsworth loving, Shakespeare quoting, claret imbibing barrister returns in these hugely enjoyable stories of legal chicanery and criminal derring-do. Rumpole and the Primrose Path finds Rumpole stuck in the Primrose Path nursing home, while his colleagues are planning a memorial service. But there's life in the old brief yet. In Rumpole and the Scales of Justice, our hero is back in harness, defending a senior police officer accused of conspiracy to murder. Rumpole and the Vanishing Juror sees Rumpole dealing with the strange case of a disappearing jury member. And in Rumpole Redeemed, Rumpole encounters an incorrigible recidivist who seems unlikely to reform; but everyone is capable of redemption, even Rumpole.
