Book description:

Rumpole for the Defence
          This collection contains seven tales about the Old Bailey hack Rumpole, and the various judges and oddballs he encounters. The immortal Rumpole -- "defender of our wilting faith in mankind" -- is back in seven superb stories: Rumpole and the Confession of Guilt, Rumpole and the Gentle Art of Blackmail, Rumpole and the Dear Departed, Rumpole and the Rotten Apple, Rumpole and the Expert Witness, Rumpole and the Spirit of Christmas and Rumpole and the Boat People.

Rumpole and the Golden Thread
          Horace Rumpole, whom the nation has taken to its collective bosom, who continues to untie the knots in English law and the contradicitons of the human heart in his death-defying performances on behalf of justice, is back on form in another bestselling collection of stories. This collection includes "Rumpole and the Genuine Article", "Rumpole and the Golden Thread", "Rumpole and the Old Boy Net", "Rumpole and the Female of the Species", "Rumpole and the Sporting Life" and "Rumpole and the Last Resort".

Rumpole's Last Case
          Rumpole is on the again, with his taste for claret, his penchant for poetry, and his reputation for a good story. Several interesting cases of murder and suspicious doings pass through chambers, and Rumpole uses the refined taste of a garage mechanic to discover the reasons for the robbery of a case of wine; indulges his knowledge of bloodstains and typewriters; and recalls three delightful battles with his arch-enemy, the Mad Bull (Judge Roger Bullingham). As usual, Rumpole's biting wit and benevolent ideas of justice push the Mad Bull to the edge of retaliation, and it is only through some last-minute diplomatic intervention that Rumpole lives to argue another day.
