A collection of stories about the courtroom antics of disheveled barrister Horace Rumpole.

These stories are irresistibly witty, ingeniously plotted, and filled with such delightful supporting players as Sir Guthrie Featherstone, Judge “Ollie” Oliphant, and the dynamic duo of Claude and Phillida Erskine-Brown.

    " Rumpole never fails to please, and this collection is no exception. 'Rumpole on Trial' is the gem of this particular gathering of tales. "

    " Rumpole never disappoints. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 1/7/2012

    " Rumpole is a pure delight. He must be related to Bertie Wooster. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Edelhart Kempeneers | 11/26/2011

    " Vond het toch niet echt bijzonder. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 R.Bruce | 9/18/2011

    " I'm just captivated by Mortimer's protagonist, so anything to do with Rumpole is a sho in best for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rae | 12/20/2010

    " The adventures of British barrister, Horace Rumpole. I love reading Rumpole and then watching the old PBS broadcasts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Carter | 9/8/2010

    " The judges are as ghastly as ever, but Rumpole is as lovable as ever. A bit of suspense at the end when the question of his possible disbarment arises (although what reader could doubt the final verdict?) and he seems almost to hope it will come about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lois | 2/25/2010

    " Delightful and witty! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tonya | 3/24/2009

    " I would always watch Rumpole on PBS with my dad when I was growing up. These are just short stories/mysteries. I love them because they are so British and because they remind me of my dad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gavin | 1/26/2008

    " Whether you're a lawyer or not Rumpole is great. Tremendously funny and irreverent too. The barrister who never lost a case - well, he might have done, but to know that for sure you'd have to read his stories - something I would recommend. "
