The old maestro has not lost his touch,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rumpole and the Reign of Terror (Hardcover)
This is a delight - Rumpole and his work brought bang up to date, and this time with wonderful interjections from the memoirs of Hilda, who has doughtily locked herself into the box room to pound a laptop.
Rumpole's defending of a possible terrorist suspect, the familiar insouciance, the refusal to meekly go along with changes to the legal system, are related as sharply and as readably as ever.
Mr Mortimer has certainly not lost his touch, and neither has Rumpole! The loss of the incomparable Leo McKern, who would have portrayed these newest explots on the TV screen with immense gusto, is doubly sad.
