Customer Review

on 8 November 2007
First: This is a novela easily read in a couple of hours so yes the price is a bit much considering.

Second: As with last year's "Rumpole and the Reign of Terror," this book primarily serves as a platform for Mortimer to highlight New Labour's continuing infringement upon hard-won civil liberties in the name of trendy political issues: security, social justice, global warming etc.

Beware: This is not the vintage Rumpole of the television years. Storyline details about the supporting cast from that time have been completely disregarded. Judge Bullingham is alive once more. Hoskins has ceased to be a judge and despite telling us years ago that Hilda's daddy old C.H. Wystan never took silk we are now informed that he did.

Still the book is worth reading if only to share Mortimer's contempt for those who steamrole freedom in the name of social justice.
