Rumpole Rests His Case by John Clifford Mortimer
Book DescriptionThe comic, courageous, and corpulent Horace Rumpole reenters the fray in these seven fresh and funny stories in which the "great defender of muddled and sinful humanity" triumphs over the forces of prejudice and mean-mindedness while he tiptoes precariously through the domestic territory of his wife, Hilda-She Who Must Be Obeyed! With his passion for poetry, and a nose equally sensitive to the whiff of wrongdoing and the bouquet of a Chateau Thames Embankment, the lovable and disheveled Rumpole "is at his rumpled best" ("The New York Times")."
