    " Fantastically funny with great characters. "

    " This is the first in the excellent Rumpole of the Bailey series by John Mortimer. I first came across the series via USA's Public Television as part of their Mystery! series and fell in love with the series and the late Leo McKern. There has been 3 books (I think) since Leo's death and I am hoping that no one will make series out of those books as I cannot picture anyone else playing Rumpole. "

    " Four stars foe every Rumpole book! "

    " Any Rumpole book is funny, sad, very well written, and just plain GOOD. Even the videos are great. Good doesn't always prevail. The bad guys are often hard to spot. The main characters are horribly flawed, but you really care about them. I read these books over and over because even if you know how they end, they're still good. Oh, I forgot to mention that they're all short stories linked together with Horace Rumpole, a lawyer in England, his wife, Hilda (he calls her "She Who Must Be Obeyed"), the people Rumpole works with, and the people Rumpole defends in court. John Mortimer, the author, is an ex-attorney, so there's nothing fake about the stories. He is a great writer--he did the screen play for the Brideshead Revisited miniseries. What else can I say? You need to give this book a try. "
