Rumpole and the Reign of Terror

Rumpole of the Bailey fans might be interested in this novel by John Mortimer: Rumpole and the Reign of Terror. It is about a British hospital doctor of Pakistani descent who is accused of being a terrorist. Britain's Anti-Terror Act, which seems alot like the U.S. Patriot Act, initially prevents Rumpole from finding out what exactly are the alleged terrorist activities of the doctor, i.e. the right of habeas corpus is denied to the defendant and his lawyer. Published by Viking, 2006.

For more information on Mortimer's views on the British Anti-Terror Act, and this novel, see:
