Overview

With Rumpole Rests His Case, legions of fans welcomed back the curmudgeonly London barrister they had loved for years?and they are eager for more. The six new stories in Rumpole and the Primrose Path find Horace Rumpole?despite a heart attack that left him at death?s door in the previous volume?deftly parrying everything from the admonitions of his wife, Hilda, to the vagaries of his legal colleagues and their new director of marketing, Luci. With her cell phone, corporate jargon, glossy brochures, and plans to give their chambers a new image, Luci presumes Rumpole is soon to expire, and has been planning his memorial service. But the witty and irreverent Rumpole, sharp as ever, is far from hanging up his wig!

Mortimer is the master of a crisp, witty, eminently readable prose style. (Los Angeles Times)
