Dillon Clark, the famous trial lawyer from "The Beneficiary," joins up with Kelly Parks, a law student by night and paralegal by day, to help find a way for justice to prevail. In this fast-paced drama, Dillon and Kelly confront many of the pitfalls faced by litigants in divorce courts accross the United States, including judges who are biaed against women, lawyers who willingly help clients hide assets and falsify evidence, and a legal system that can at times do little to avoid the terrible life-destroying consequences. The story brings to real life the inherent problem faced by anyone whose life is put into the hands of our justice system: only those who can afford to pay for a top lawyer can truly protect their rights - and those that can usually win. If you like a cliff-hanging story and don't mind a few tears, you will thoroughly enjoy this novel. And as a bonus, you will also be helping the orphans in the terrible slums of Nairobi.
