One of the best Rumpole books,
This review is from: Rumpole and the Primrose Path (Paperback)
I like this book because it introduces Luci Gribble, the new director of marketing and administration at Rumpole's Chambers. Luci is always spouting corporate jargon and at first glance doesn't seem like anyone Rumpole would like, but she turns out to be a valuable ally and a good friend. She helps him solve the mysteries in "Rumpole and the Primrose Path" and "Rumpole Redeemed," covers for him when his wife Hilda ("She Who Must Be Obeyed") demands that he start working out at a gym, and helps him make it up to Hilda when it transpires that he hasn't been working out as regularly as he says he has. Almost thirty years after the first Rumpole book came out, John Mortimer still knows how to keep Rumpole fresh and enjoyable.
