Rumpole has returned, in spite of the age of his alter-ego, John Mortimer (84 years at the time of this book's publication). Rumpole has not lost his wonderful sense of humor; he goes after ignorant government policies (delightful example: "Anti Social Behaviour Order" [ASBO] where the government punishes people under the charge of being anti-social without due process).

Mrs. Rumpole shares with the readers (in her journal) her idea to read for the bar. In the meantime, Rumpole decides to pursue the idea of 'taking silk' -- becoming one of England's Queen's Counsel. He may be a bit old to be a junior barrister, but who will defend the Timson family if Rumpole becomes one of the exalted of the Old Bailey?
