Publisher's Summary

Rumpole again defends a member of the Timson clan on a charge of possession of stolen goods - namely, he is caught with a garage full of expensive wine. Rumpole is concerned that Timson's explanation that he purchased the wine from some unknown individual he met in a pub will not go down well with Mr. Justice Graves, who has heard these stories many times before.

The real Rumpole

Leo McKern is (was?) the REAL Rumpole. Always a complete delight to hear his portrayal.

Rumpole, as he was meant to be heard

Leo McKern and John Clifford Mortimer deliver the very model of the English barrister of a bygone and much missed day. Rest easy, good sirs, beneath angel choirs...and you, dear reader, listen to Rumpole spin his yarn about deceptions both in and out of Court.

Wonderful performance

John Mortimers Rumpole books are always funny and literate but for me it is Leo McKerns incomparable performance as Rumpole that puts certain of them over the top. I have listen to this one more than once to enjoy its humor, erudition, and fine acting . Great fun!
