Six brand-new stories about one of the finest barristers ever to defend a client or to savour a fine wine. Once again Horace Rumpole weaves his way elegantly among the intricacies of the courtroom and the human heart, only to find that advancing years catch up with even the most indomitable spirit. 'One suspects that this may be Rumpole's swan-song. But we have not heard the last of him. Like all the great fictional characters, he has secured his immortality' Sunday Telegraph
