Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) may be the pride and joy of the New Labour Party, but they don't cut much ice with Horace Rumpole--he takes the old-fashioned view that if anyone is going to be threatened with a restriction of their liberty then some form of legal proceeding ought to be gone through first. Not that Hilda agrees, of course, but she's too busy completing her memoirs to dissuade him from taking an interest when one of the Timson children is given an ASBO for playing football in the street. And pretty soon he realizes something fishy is going on. Why are the residents pursuing their vendetta against the Timson boy quite so strongly? Could they have a sinister reason for not wanting him on their street?… (més)

    themulhern: A fun book about intradepartmental wrangling, less moral and ethical than Rumpole Misbehaves, but a good deal funnier.

"Rumpole Misbehaves" (2007), the last of John Mortimer's novels about veteran British barrister Horace Rumpole, gives us more of what we expect (and desire) from these stories, as well as something new. What's new? Well, Hilda, She Who Must Be Obeyed in Rumpole parlance, decides to study law herself. Why should her husband have all the fun? Meanwhile, Rumpole, who for years has ridiculed the initial QC after the names of higher-ranking lawyers as meaning "Queer Customer," decides to try to become an elite Queen's Counsel himself. And thanks to Hilda's intervention, Judge Bullingham, Rumpole's longtime adversary in the courtroom, someone who can always be counted on to take the prosecution side, intervenes on his behalf.

Meanwhile, Rumpole gets the chance to defend, "alone and without a leader," a man accused of murdering a prostitute. He has other cases, too, all of which seem to conveniently aid him in defending the man being tried for murder.

As for the misbehavior mentioned in the title, Rumpole ignores a workplace directive prohibiting food, drink and smoking in chambers. The barrister manages to defend himself as ably as he defends his clients.

This is hardly one of the late John Mortimer's best Rumpole stories, yet it is great fun and not to be missed by fans of the series. ( )

Darn, I thought the legal gods might smile and give Rumpole his Q.C. ( )

Pedestrian, but fun nonetheless. ( )

Rumpole just makes the world a better place. This would have been better to read in all one sitting (it's thin) but still fantastic. I still hear Leo McKern's voice when I read them.

Good and entertaining - but Mortimer was reaching the end of his tether. Either the characters were played out or he was - but the novel seemed artificial and contrived. Interesting in the context of the ASBO - which in a younger Mortimer would have surely yielded more vitriol and ire. The ASBOs are an insult to the English legal system or any other civilized nation. It is a scandal and deserved more anger than this novel could bring to bear. ( )
