A Rumpole Christmas: Stories by John Mortimer

Rumpole is one of the immortals of mystery fiction. -San Francisco Chronicle Of the late Sir John Mortimers many beloved characters, it is widely agreed that Horace Rumpole was his greatest fictional creation. Here, collected in book form for the first time, are five delightful tales that capture the beleagured barrister at his grumpy, yet warm-hearted best. Rumpole isnt particularly fond of Christmas Day-he finds it has a horrible habit of dragging on as She Who Must Be Obeyed leads him through the usual rituals. But at least the criminal fraternity rarely takes a holiday. Whether its a suspicious Father Christmas, or an unseasonably nasty murder trial, theres always something wonderfully unlawful to liven up Rumpoles dull holiday plans.
