Brilliant from start to finish, Mortimer has a 1st 2nd and 3rd Rumpole Omnibus to collect in addition to the unmissable 'Penge Bungalow Murders'. All are excellent additions to any fiction shelf.
Rumpole is always in search of the truth and sees possible defences where other people may only see a guilty plea. There are some of my favourite stories in this collection including 'Rumpole and the Gentle Art of Blackmail' - which shows Rumpole dealing with a crime which he prefers not to touch if he can avoid it and 'Rumpole and the Dear Departed' in which he receives his instructions from beyond the grave.
I also particularly like 'Rumpole and the Genuine Article' in which the art world comes in for some scorn, and 'Rumpole and the Old Boy Net' which ridicules the idea that everyone from the same school should stick together in later life. 'Rumpole and the Last Resort' is priceless and shows Rumpole getting round the convention which stops barristers suing for unpaid fees.
Of the third selection in this volume I particularly enjoy 'Rumpole and the Official Secret' in which his brief is delivered in a safe and involves the number of biscuits consumed by Ministry staff. 'Rumpole and the Bright Seraphim' is a sober and thought provoking story which examines the question of loyalty and how far people will go to uphold it.
Many of the stories in this volume will make you smile but others do raise some disturbing questions and will cause the reader to think more deeply about the law and justice.
