A BOSTON GLOBE BEST MYSTERY OF THE YEAR
Lisa and Joe Stone, married for twenty years and partners in their small Virginia law firm, handle routine, run-of-the-mill cases, including never-ending complaints from their cantankerous client Lettie VanSandt. When Lettie dies in a suspicious accident and unexpectedly leaves her entire estate to Joe, the Stones find themselves entangled in a corporate conspiracy that will require all their legal skills not to mention some difficult ethical choices for them to survive. Complicating matters, Lisa is desperately trying to shield Joe from a dreadfulsecret, a mistake that she would give anything to erase.
With a cast of perfectly drawn imperfect characters, an intricate tour of the legal system, and a remarkably entertaining plot alongside a no-holds-barred portrait of a marriage, The Jezebel Remedy is a legal drama in a class of its own.
