brothers in law

On Tuesday I finished a nice old orange Penguin edition of Brothers In Law by Henry Cecil (had the advantage of fitting easily into my pocket for travelling, a much-overlooked factor by modern publishers who seem to love big, thick editions). I enjoyed it, but if I wanted to read more like it again I'd read more Rumpole stories rather than more Henry Cecil; clearly a forerunner, tales of court and chambers told by one who knows, but a bit more romantic comedy.
