Martin Clark--who has set, according to the Winston-Salem Journal, "the new standard by which other works of legal fiction should be judged"--now delivers his finest novel yet.
 
Lisa and Joe Stone, married for twenty years and partners in their small law firm in Henry County, Virginia, handle less-than-glamorous cases, whether domestic disputes, personal injury settlements, or never-ending complaints from their cantankerous client Lettie VanSandt ("eccentric" by some accounts, "certifiable" by others).  When Lettie dies in a freakish fire, the Stones think it's certainly possible that she was cooking meth in her trailer. But details soon emerge that lead them to question how "accidental" her demise actually was, and settling her peculiar estate becomes endlessly complicated.

Before long, 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.   Meanwhile, Lisa is desperately trying to shield Joe from a secret, dreadful error that she would give anything to erase, even as his career--and her own--hangs in the balance. In The Jezebel Remedy , Clark gives us a stunning portrait of a marriage, an intricate tour of the legal system, and a relentlessly entertaining story that is full of inventions, shocks, and understanding.
