5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Stocking Stuffer, 2 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rumpole at Christmas (Hardcover)
The late Sir John Mortimer left behind a number of Rumpole stories first published in magazines and newspapers and/or broadcast on radio which were not published in book form during his life. Several of these stories have been gathered here in what must be considered a must-read for all Rumpoleans.

Two notes of caution:
1) Despite what the dust-jacket says about absolutely none of these stories ever before appearing in book form, the lead story in this collection also appeared as the lead story in the 2001 collection Rumpole Rests His Case. Otherwise, these stories are indeed all "fresh" to book form.

2) As with other late-vintage Rumpole stories, many of the story-line details from the Rumpole of the television years have been ignored or forgotten. Readers who can look past these inconsistencies should enjoy these tales.

There remain as yet a handfull of Rumpole stories still not collected in any book. Perhaps the publisher can bring these together as one further last treat from the master.
