Publisher's Summary

ASBOs may be the pride and joy of New Labour, but they don't cut much ice with Horace Rumpole - he takes the old-fashioned view that if anyone is going to be threatened with a restriction of their liberty then some form of legal proceeding ought to be gone through first. When one of the Timson children is given an ASBO for playing football in the street, Rumpole soon realizes something fishy is going on.

Sheer Genius

Bill Wallis really makes Rumpole come to life and the character vocalisations are fantastic.

As usual this is Rumpole at his best, I can't recommend this book enough, it is sublime!

Where does The Anti-Social Behaviour of Horace Rumpole rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 30%Although Rumpole is one of my favourite characters this is my least favourite of the Rumpole novels. I prefer the short stories in any case but this one was rather depressing.
