Rumpole and the Reign of Terror - John Mortimer

Viking, 2006, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper.

From the cover: “In the dark days of the war on terror, only one man can be counted on to fight injustice, defend the innocent and insist on a fair and decent trial for all, contrary to New Labour's new anti-terrorism laws. Rumpole's wig may be yellowing at the roots, his gown might be in tatters, but the oldest inhabitant of 4 Equity Court has no use for the word ‘retirement’. There's the larcenous Timson family to defend, suicide bombers to dodge, Pommeroy's Wine Bar to frequent and the financing of the Rumpole household — with Hilda's indulgence in luxury cleaning products — to look after.”
