'Is football a crime nowadays?' asks Horace Rumpole. Apparently so. For twelve-year-old Peter Timson - of the London family of petty criminals - has been served with an ASBO for playing the game in the street. Pretty soon, however, Rumpole realises that there's something fishy about the Timson case. Why are Peter's neighbours pursuing a vendetta against him? Could they have sinister reasons for wanting him off their street? And could it be connected to the death of a prostitute, in which the prime suspect is a hapless young bachelor protesting his innocence - a second call to arms Rumpole can scarcely ignore? As if all that weren't enough, Rumpole's colleagues are up in arms about the cigars and glasses of wine he occasionally enjoys in Chambers. The way things are going, Rumpole himself will be getting an ASBO...

Rumpole deals with Antisocial Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) and other modern day limits to our freedoms in the name of political correctness. It's all very serious in its intent, though of course handled with Mortimer's usual lightness of touch. His novels get shorter as he gets older, though.
