“A humorous journey through insanity, obsessiveness, lawyers, convicts and mystery”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
A lawyer and her client are blazing a trail of misplaced revenge from state to state and attorney A.P. Hill is hot on their tails. Meanwhile, her partner Bill MacPherson has just purchased an old mansion for them to use as an office/home. The grand house comes complete with a shed, a chandelier, and the last owner. And then there’s Bill’s sister, Elizabeth. Suffering from depression after her husband goes missing at sea, Elizabeth checks herself into a mental hospital.
So there you have it, three plot lines. Do they tie together? Barely. To me, it seemed as though they were three weak short stories that the author couldn’t make work so she threw them together for a book. The revenge plot line could have been amusing (wannabe Romeos left to be found the next day minus their wallets and clothes) if only more time had been taken to develop it. Elizabeth’s stay at the mental hospital falls flat as most of this line is given to her and the other patients meandering drone mostly about the role of beauty in society.
