Lady Justice isn't blind; she sees the world through the corrective lenses of flawed statutes, fallible judges, cutthroat lawyers, and avenging cops. When Randle's high tech company files its IPO, his wife, Carrie, files for divorce, expecting to walk away with a financial windfall. Instead, Randle fights back and their simple divorce becomes a twisted tale of treachery, betrayal and perilous miscalculations.
Did someone try to kill him? Or was he framed for a murder attempt?
Outmoded divorce laws provide the kindling; Randle's lazy lawyer, an aloof judge, a misanthropic mediator, a publicity-seeking prosecutor and Carrie's capricious twin sister fan the flames; and one disheveled, easy-to-underestimate detective douses the blaze with dogged police work.
