This is an auction for FOREVER RUMPOLE: THE BEST OF THE RUMPOLE STORIES by John Mortimer.

"A volume sure to be treasured by both old fans and new."
- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Horace Rumpole, the claret-quaffing barrister who never quite makes the grade but always makes a point, stars in a new collection of his most outrageous exploits . . . Rumpole’s courtroom antics and politically incorrect gaffes have made him a perennial favourite among mystery fans for decades . . . those uninitiated to the irascible barrister’s charm and wit will have much to relish. The collection is an excellent primer to all things Rumpole.”
- Library Journal

“Once detective-fiction heroes enter your mental landscape, they can seem as real as your own friends and family. For a lot of people, Horace Rumpole is just such a vivid and familiar figure . . . Rumpole fans can savour a bailiff’s dozen of Rumpole’s seriocomic adventures in Forever Rumpole.”
- Wall Street Journal

“Fourteen of the best of Rumpole’s cases have been gathered for this compilation . . . the dishevelled lawyer fielded cases ranging from petty larceny to Islamic terrorism, all with his characteristic tilting at windmills and his biting tongue-in-cheek wit.”
- Bookpage (US)

“John Mortimer’s stories combine a Wodehousian wit with a generous humanism of which the world could use another dollop…it is always a pure pleasure to sit down with the Old Bailey hack.”
- Christian Science Monitor
