"The caustic wit of aging barrister Horace Rumpole keeps you laughing throughout these six short stories about the politics and intrigue that constitute daily life in the law chambers of Number 3 Equity Court. Rumpole fans will be pleased to learn that his contempt for most other barristers continues unabated--and makes for great listening. Bill Wallis delivers the perfect reading that we expect of him. His Rumpole sounds much like Leo McKern, who played Rumpole in the popular British series on public television. Wallis's superb timing bears particular mention. Rumpole's verbal asides are delivered sotto voce (hence, they're deniable), and his roars are explosions. A great listen. R.E.K. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
