Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who rose to enduring fame on Blood and Typewriters, told the pregnant Portia of the Chambers it would come out in the end, advised Guthrie Featherstone, Q.C., to adopt a more judicial attitude, returned in the tender gloaming of each evening-via Pommeroy's and a glass of Chateau Fleet Street- to She Who Must Be Obeyed? The answer is Horace Rumpole whose legal triumphs, plundering stories into the Oxford Book of English Verse and less-than-salubrious hat are celebrated here in this first omnibus edition.

Synopsis:

Horace Rumpole, whose legal triumphs, plundering sorties and less-than-salubrius hat are celebrated in this first omnibus edition of Rumpole stories. This edition includes "Rumpole of the Bailey", "The Trials of Rumpole" and "Rumpole's Return".
