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.
