The hilarious festive stories of John Mortimer's greatest character. Sure to get you in the mood for Christmas!

'Without Rumpole, the world would be a poorer place' Daily Mail
Horace Rumpole is not overfond of the rituals of Christmas: turkey, tinsel and the like. But happily the festive season is not one respected by the criminal fraternity; meaning that celebrations in the Rumpole household are frequently disturbed in most-welcome ways.
There's the suspicious Father Christmas at Equity's Court's festive party. The actor who goes missing from the panto on the night of a major crime. As well as the body cluttering up the health farm (where the great barrister is gloomily restricted to a diet of yak's milk and steamed spinach to please She Who Must Be Obeyed).
These seven wonderful Rumpole stories show the great man at his sharpest, wittiest and best. Readers of Sherlock Holmes, P.D. James and P.G. Wodehouse will love this book!

'One of the great comic creations of modern times' Evening Standard
'There is a truth in Rumpole that is told with brilliance and grace' Daily Telegraph
'Rumpole remains and absolute delight' The Times
