About the Author:

John Mortimer is a playwright, novelist, and former practicing barrister who has written many film scripts as well as stage, radio, and television plays, the Rumpole plays, for which he received the British Academy Writer of the Year Award, and the adaptation of Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited. He is the author of twelve collections of Rumpole stories and three acclaimed volumes of autobiography.

From AudioFile:

Actor Leo McKern, who played Rumpole on the PBS series, may have died, but the world still has a remarkable interpretation of the Old Bailey defender--in Timothy West's narration. The stories in this volume are familiar from the "Rumpole of the Bailey" TV series, but they're still a treat, not just for the courtroom drama, but also for Rumpole's deft handling of office conflicts. The story line weaves through the seven mysteries, kicking off with a member of the Timson clan falsely accused of devil worship, sending Rumpole into a hostile child welfare court, and ending with Rumpole facing charges of unethical conduct.
