Product Description

On 6 CD's. Rumpole had been a novice at Number 4 Equity Court, fresh from a quiet war in RAF groundstaff and a law degree at Oxford, when the murders at Penge first hit the headlines: two war heroes, bomber pilots who'd flown numerous sorties together over Europe, apparently shot dead after a reunion dinner by the son of one of them, young Simon Jerold. Young he might have been, but in those dark post-war days Jerold was facing the ultimate punishment. Yet, for Rumpole, there was something about the evidence which bothered him...

By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 14 Dec. 2011
"Keep yourself far from a false matter; do not kill the innocent and righteous." -- Exodus 23:7 (NKJV)

If you know Rumpole, you know that he stakes his reputation in the Old Bailey on winning the Penge Bungalow Murders case. But until now, you didn't know about the case. Here's your chance to find out.

During a drunken evening, Simon Jerold was threatened with embarrassment and grabbed a gun to stop matters, proclaiming that he would kill his father. The next morning, both father and a friend who lived nearby were found shot to death with the gun. Jerold delayed in calling the police, and he seems headed for a hangman's rope.

Young Horace Rumpole gains an unexpected opportunity to be the junior barrister on the case after he unintentionally attracts the attention of future wife, "She Who Must Be Obeyed," daughter of the head of chambers. Normally juniors are seen and not heard. That's not likely in the case of Rumpole and you'll love how he ends up defending the case without a QC to "lead" him. In the process, there's lots of good fun poked at how lawyers and judges look out for one another rather than their clients.

Rumpole "solves" the case in the best tradition of Perry Mason. But that's the least of the fun in this origin story that no Rumpole fan should miss.

I listened to the Bill Wallis reading of the book and enjoyed every charmingly accented word.

excellent, very easy to listen to and to get absorbed by. This case explains the cast (and wife) of the rest of the rumpole series.
