With his curmudgeonly wit, his fondness for cheap cigars and inexpensive wines, his legendary courtroom skills and his stubborn refusal to ever enter a guilty plea, Horace Rumpole lives alongside Sherlock Holmes, Jeeves and Miss Marple as one of the immortal characters of English fiction.
Forever Rumpole brings together 14 of Rumpole’s most entertaining adventures, including a fragment of the novel that author John Mortimer had been writing when he passed away in 2009. Showcasing the very best tales of the crusty barrister and his formidable wife, Hildy (a.k.a. She Who Must Be Obeyed), this collection is a smart, witty and hilarious treat. It’s a fitting tribute to an indelible character and his remarkable creator.
