Description
The first ever collection of Rumpole Christmas stories? just in time for the holidays A Rumpole Christmas is a collection of five holiday stories?never before published in book form? depicting the Old Bailey Hack at his lovable best. In ?Rumpole and Father Christmas,? the English barrister encounters a familiar-looking Santa who he thinks is a thief. In ?Rumpole?s Slimmed Down Christmas,? he goes to a new-age spa when ?She who must be obeyed? insists that he lose a few pounds. In ?Rumpole and the Christmas Break,? he protects Hilda as a shady judge flirts with her while on a holiday that turns out to be anything but relaxing. Witty and compulsively readable, this irresistible new collection will provide solace to the legions of fans lamenting John Mortimer?s death early this year.
