Read full description of the books:
Rumpole of the Bailey, well known for the popular and long running television series (although I am familiar with it, I don't recall ever watching it), in what feels like an excerpt, published as a Penguin 60. I say it feels like an Excerpt, because I cannot be sure if it is a stand alone short story, which carries on in the next short story, or whether it is simply a chapter break in a book.
Either way, it stands alone well enough, although I had some doubts about the relevance of what I was reading five pages from the end. However, it closed loop in the story, and ultimately worked well.
The rear of the book states this is the first story featuring Rumpole, so it works well as an introduction to the character, his family, and his colleagues. It involves a court case, where Rumpole is a defence solicitor, working as legal aid (ie paid by the state to defend the accused). It is a simple enough story, but it is well written, with variance in pace, and colour in the descriptions.
Very readable, very accessible, and not bogged down in law, as a book of this genre could so easily be.
Between 3 and 4 stars, rounded up.
