    " 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. "

    " 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. "
