Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Bill Wallis

Mystery & Suspense • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

A shameful hoax is being perpetrated on the listening public! In this volume, the seedy, old (albeit brilliant) barrister of the title relates stories of six cases in the delightfully witty style for which he has become notorious. Inexplicably, the publishers allege that Bill Wallis narrates this volume, which they further claim was written by John Mortimer. By now, Rumpole's admirers are well aware that Mortimer is his nom de plume, and, upon hearing merely the first minute of this superb offering, will recognize at once the old boy's very own voice. No impersonator could counterfeit Rumpole's voice and personality so perfectly or hold forth so amusingly about his own adventures. We are not fooled, BBC Audiobooks! Do you think we Yanks were born yesterday? If you wish to hide poor Rumpole's raconteurish light under a bushel, you shall have to be more clever than this! Y.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
