This collection of stories will appeal both to This collection of stories will appeal both to Rumpole's current fans and to those discovering him for the first time. He is an anachronism but, as read by Tony Britton, seems utterly timeless. Mortimer has brought his creation into the twenty-first century by referring to computers and the Internet, but these merely serve as counterweights to Rumpole's intuition and time-honored sleuthing ways. Britton's wonderful British accent curls around Rumpole and all the other characters in the book. His voice is elastic enough to cover females, teenagers, and senior citizens, and steady enough to enunciate phrases at just the right times for both comic timing and suspenseful effects. Britton is as much a treat for the ears as Rumpole is for the brain. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
