Rumpole a la carte (Mortimer, John)

Regular price $5.00

Six new tales featuring everyone’s favorite barrister, Horace Rumpole—disheveled, polemical, and immensely fond of cigars, Wordsworth, and Château Thames Embankment. He once again takes centre stage in these delightful mysteries. Delicious characters such as Rumpole’s wife, Hilda (otherwise known as She Who Must Be Obeyed) and philandering colleague Claude Erskine-Brown accompany the cantankerous barrister as he visits a snooty restaurant and engages in a battle of wills over his adored mashed spuds; takes the unaccustomed role of prosecutor; and ventures—unwillingly—onto a ship where he confronts, of all things, a detective novelist
