John Mortimer is a playwright, novelist, and former practicing barrister who has written many film scripts as well as stage, radio, and television plays, the Rumpole plays, for which he received the British Academy Writer of the Year Award, and the adaptation of Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited. He is the author of twelve collections of Rumpole stories and three acclaimed volumes of autobiography.From Library Journal:
Blending action and insight in just the right proportions, the creator of the PBS series Rumpole of the Bailey offers a work that is at once character study and suspense. Originally published in England in 1953 and subsequently made into a radio play, this novel is neither diminished nor dated by the lapse of time. It is the tale of Christopher Kennet, a respected solicitor and a private man, who discovers his son's involvement in a mysterious and possibly illegal manipulation of the funds of a longtime client. As the deal unfolds, both father and son discover their real values in life--much to their own surprise. Mortimer deftly intertwines action with personal revelation, thus creating a smoothly moving story alivewith well-crafted characters. A good book for a lazy afternoon.
