The first ever collection of Rumpole Christmas stories? just in time for the holidays A Rumpole Christmas is a collection of five holiday stories?never before published in book form? depicting the Old Bailey Hack at his lovable best.

In ?Rumpole?s Slimmed Down Christmas,? he goes to a new-age spa when ?She who must be obeyed? insists that he lose a few pounds.
