Rumpole is on the job again, bringing along his taste for claret, his penchant for poetry, and his reputation for a good story. These seven irresistible stories run the gamut from simple thievery to murder and espionage. Rumpole recalls three delightful battles with his arch-enemy, the Mad Bull, indulges his knowledge of bloodstains and typewriters, and uses the refined taste of a garage mechanic to discover the reasons for the robbery of a case of wine.

As usual, Rumpole’s biting wit and benevolent ideas of justice push the Mad Bull to the edge of retaliation, and it is only through some last minute diplomatic intervention that Rumpole lives to argue another day.
