Rumpole for the Defence
Horace Rumpole always knows what he is doing-even if no one else does. But in these challenging cases, even the beloved barrister gets more than he bargained for, as he gallantly teaches a Professor of Moral Philosophy about blackmail; consults with the dearly departed about a contested will; traces the path of true love after a doctor is murdered; and (in the name of duty, of course) drinks to excess with a teetotaling member of the prosecution. With some help from his wife, She Who Must Be Obeyed, the champion of the underdog and the scourge of judges triumphs yet again.

I love john Mortimer's arc style and the inner musings of Rumpole set the standard for my own mental observations. Pure joy and fine stories to boot. Read full review
