Synopsis of this title

Maintaining the froideur that has won her little public support, First Lady Elizabeth Tyler MacMann needs to find the hottest lawyer in town to defend her in the biggest murder trial in America's history. And that means taking on the services of the fiance she dumped at law school in order to marry the then distinguished war hero who eventually becomes President. Serially divorced, Boyce Baylor is not surprised - he's the only attorney up to the job and he knows it. It's all going swimmingly - he's got it nailed, until his client decides she wants to take the stand and restore her reputation and he has no choice but to acquiesce. Throw in several egos the size of the White House, media-spin like there's no tomorrow, the old boy network, some very underhand business involving the FBI, a pregnancy, a few sex toys and a dose of Viagra and you're some way into this delicious farce - which becomes all the more delicious when you realise how small a leap of the imagination is required to get there.

quotes

The Guardian
'Outrageous, surreal, absurd, farcical and hugely politically incorrect.'
