Horace Rumpole is supposedly enjoying his well-earned retirement basking in the Florida sunshine. But a colleague's casual request for advice on a difficult case sends him hurriedly back across the Atlantic. Leaving retirement far behind, the irreverent and claret-swilling Rumpole soon finds himself facing a fanatical religious cult, a mysterious letter written in blood, and the Pornographer-in-Chief to the fair town of Grimble.
