Horace Rumpole, cigar-smoking, claret-drinking, Wordsworth-spouting defender of some unlikely clients, often speaks of the great murder trial, which revealed his talents as an advocate and made his reputation down at the Bailey when he was still a young man. Now, for the first time, the sensational story of the Penge Bungalow Murders case is told in full: how, shortly after the war, Rumpole took on the seemingly impossible task of defending young Simon Jerold, accused of murdering his father and his father's friend with a German officer's gun. And how the inexperienced young brief was left alone to pursue the path of justice, in a case that was to echo through the Bailey for years to come.

We absolutely loved this story and Wallis' narration. It was extremely well-written with Mortimer's wonderful characters and story, wit and quotations from great English literature. We also learned much more about Horace Rumpole and his commitment to serve the underdog. We've seen every episode of the Thames Television Series "Rumpole of the Bailey" (1975-1992) with the inimitable Leo McKern. Now we will listen to the audiobooks narrated by Bill Wallis. Thank you, KCLS, for this treat.
