Horace Rumpole - cigar-smoking, claret-drinking, Wordsworth-spouting defender of some unlikely clients - often speaks of the great murder trial which revealed his talents as an advocate and made his reputation down at the Bailey when he was still a young man. Now, for the first time, the sensational story of the Penge Bungalow Murders case is told in full: how, shortly after the war, Rumpole took on the seemingly impossible task of defending young Simon Jerold, accused of murdering his father and his father's friend with a German officer's gun. And how the inexperienced young brief was left alone to pursue the path of justice, in a case that was to echo through the Bailey for years to come.

Magic, time travel and football: not exactly your everyday combination - but the fate of mankind hangs upon the result. Of course. There's big trouble in little Brentford. Property developers are planning to destroy the borough's beloved football ground and build executive homes on the site. Shock! Outrage! Horror! The lads of The Flying Swan, Brentford's most celebrated drinking house, take up the challenge. Surely with these stalwarts working for the cause, Brentford's football ground can be saved? Would it were so, but this is Brentford and ancient forces of evil are forever stirring in the borough: Old Testament terrors, Lovecraftian loathsomes and beasties from the bottomless pit. And if the team make it through to the final, it's going to be a match that no one will forget. What with the fate of mankind hanging upon the result. And everything.

Since the first publication of Where To Live in London, the property market in London has been booming and a lot of things of changed. In light of all this, the author has updated the information for all 33 inner and outer London boroughs about school league tables, traffic and transport, council tax bands, crime figures and library-use tables. Since house prices are constantly changing, they are given as a guideline only. All the same crucial questions are answered in the same accessible manner as the first version but the information reflects the property market as it is now in 2000. What is it really like to live in the different neighbourhoods of London? What sorts of price bands can you expect in the various areas? Are there any good schools nearby for children and how well does the town council perform? What sort of people are attracted to the area? Sara McConnell walks the reader through London borough by borough and provides detailed information on all the various aspects in life in London such as shops, restaurants, open spaces and medical and leisure facilities. This easy-to-use guide features graded star ratings for amenities, provides a map of the boroughs and offers a list of useful addresses.
