Readers delight in the adventures of Horace Rumpole, but despite the publication of more than one hundred stories, his early years have remained shrouded in mystery-until now. In Rumpole and the Penge Bungalow Murders, John Mortimer tells the story of Rumpole's first case. Looking back a half century into a very different world, Rumpole recalls the trial that put him on the map, and began to shape him into the eccentric and cantankerous defender of justice and reciter of poetry readers know and love.

This is the Rumpole Origin story.
The Case that set him on his career path.
His first encounter with the Timson family. How he 'proposed' to She.
And even as a newly-minted lawyer, Rumple says, "I think I'd rather stick to ordinary decent crime."

Read this over August 3-4 in the sunshine of Seattle's 2014 Summer. Breezy and as much fun as the tv show.
