Mortimer's writing is fluid and vivid, but one begins to wonder why it's being republished as a classic. Mortimer's book is brilliantly unsettling, a slice of paradise stuffed with snakes, where most people are Cains and there's hardly an Abel to be found. Then the savage genius of the novel becomes apparent. Lurking in his manor (although it might as well be a lair) nearby is Titmuss, now a peer, literally lording it over all and sundry.

Sir John Clifford Mortimer CBE QC FRSL (21 April 1923 – 16 January 2009) was an English barrister, dramatist, screenwriter, and author

Sir John Clifford Mortimer CBE QC FRSL (21 April 1923 – 16 January 2009) was an English barrister, dramatist, screenwriter, and author. Mortimer was born in Hampstead, London, the only child of Kathleen May (née Smith) and (Herbert) Clifford Mortimer (1884–1961), a divorce and probate barrister who became blind in 1936 when he hit his head on the door frame of a London taxi but still pursued his career. Clifford's loss of sight was not acknowledged openly by the family.

John Mortimer's brilliant follow-up to Paradise Postponed and Titmuss Regained, The Sound of Trumpets is a devilishly witty satire on political ambition, spin and sleaze, and the culmination of a masterly trilogy. For the latest books, recommendations, offers and more.
