loved it

laugh out loud funny. well read and with just the right inflection. captures the rediculousness of the law and the word pictures of the judges and queer customers and villians are hilarious.

wonderfully written tales of the Old Bailey!

bill Wallis is the THE Rumpole! wonderfully written and expertly narrated. Each story provides at least a few chuckles, especially when Rumpole runs up against she who must be obeyed ..
