A novel by

The bestselling barrister is back--and ready to take on his most timely case yet

When Rumpole and the Penge Bungalow Murders--John Mortimer's first Rumpole novel ever--debuted last year, devoted fans came to it in droves. Now, just in time for Christmas, Mortimer returns with another Rumpole novel to tackle a truly relevant topic with his signature wit and style.

While defending a mind-numbingly dull theft charge, Rumpole finds that the new terrorist laws have hamstrung his beloved courts. Meanwhile, a Pakistani doctor has been imprisoned without charge or trial under suspicion of aiding al Qaeda in its plans for a terrorist attack. With the doctor's wife begging him to help her husband, the Great Defender is determined to bring the case before a jury.

Trouble is also brewing at home as Hilda--She Who Must Be Obeyed--sits down to write her own memoirs describing her view of Rumpole and her own love life. Rumpole's battle on the home front threatens to derail his case but where there's a Rumpole, there's a way!
