"Of course, I've been drinking at all. You don't think I come out with these blinding flashes of deduction when I'm completely sober, do you?" Since the mid-seventies, viewers and readers have been delighting to the eccentric insights and wry, literate cross-examinations and observations of Harold Rumpole of the Old Bailey. While not imbibing cheap wine, eating fried food, or quoting Wordsworth, this aged barrister is pouncing on prosecution inconsistencies and solving crimes. If you haven't previously sampled the Rumpole stories of the much-mourned John Mortimer (1923-2009), this posthumous collection is a fine place to start. If you have, you will enjoy the reminiscences of Anna Mallaliev, a fellow barrister who worked closely with the legendary author.
