Sir John Clifford Mortimer CBE QC FRSL (21 April 1923 – 16 January 2009) was an English barrister, dramatist, screenwriter, and author

Sir John Clifford Mortimer CBE QC FRSL (21 April 1923 – 16 January 2009) was an English barrister, dramatist, screenwriter, and author. Mortimer was born in Hampstead, London, the only child of Kathleen May (née Smith) and (Herbert) Clifford Mortimer (1884–1961), a divorce and probate barrister who became blind in 1936 when he hit his head on the door frame of a London taxi but still pursued his career. Clifford's loss of sight was not acknowledged openly by the family.

This book was written by Mortimer after a 6 year hiatus of writing about Rumpole so fans of his from what I have read seemed quite happy that he chose to bring this character back into existence. The book is laid out as a series of six short stories; all about Rumpole who is a lawyer in England. Rumpole is portrayed not always in the best light-kind of frumpy and out of sorts and.
