Publisher's Summary

In this collection of Rumpole stories the comic, courageous, and corpulent 'great defender of muddled and sinful humanity' is joined by a winning cast of villains and victims in tales whose wry humour and sparkling wit deftly send up the legal system. In Rumpole and the Angel of Death our hero achieves resounding triumphs over the forces of prejudice and mean-mindedness. Rumpole and the Way through the Woods involves Rumpole in the world of hunters and the hunted, animal rights and human wrongs. In Rumpole and the Rights of Man, he finds at the European Court of Human Rights that international justice is as fallible as the domestic variety. And for the first time, Hilda, She Who Must Be Obeyed, tells a story all her own.

Vintage Rumpole

This latest collection of Rumpole stories does not disappoint. As wide ranging as ever in the happenstances experienced by Rumpole and Hilda (aka "She Who Must Be Obeyed"), the stories are beautifully read by Bill Wallis, who really brings the characters to life. A throughly enjoyable listen. I heartily recommend this book to all who enjoy Rumpole at his best.

The best Rumpole I've read so far.

Contains some of the best stories about the great man especially the one from 'She who must be obeyed'. As ever the narrator was spot on.
