Overview

Twenty tales featuring beloved barrister Horace Rumpole as he turns down yet another invitation to exchange the joys and sorrows of life as an Old Bailey hack for the delights of the Sunshine State, where senior citizens loll on beaches and the sarcastic tones of the Mad Bull (Judge Roger Bullingham) are heard no more-settling instead for the beaded bubbles of Chateau Pommeroy's ordinary claret, the domestic chill emanating from She Who Must Be Obeyed, and his role extraordinaire as Defender of the Faith: "Never Plead Guilty."
