No Way to Treat a First Lady | [Christopher Buckley]

No Way to Treat a First Lady

One of this country's leading political satirists dangles before us a tantalizing novel whose protagonist has a great deal in common with a recent First Lady. Beth MacIntyre, First Lady of the United States, has been charged with the murder of her husband, a Presidential Lothario of the first water. She is accused of throwing a historic Paul Revere spittoon during a bedroom spat, putting an unfortunately fatal dent in the President's lust-filled head.

Publisher's Summary

One of this country's leading political satirists dangles before us a tantalizing novel whose protagonist has a great deal in common with a recent First Lady. Beth MacIntyre, First Lady of the United States, has been charged with the murder of her husband, a Presidential Lothario of the first water. She is accused of throwing a historic Paul Revere spittoon during a bedroom spat, putting an unfortunately fatal dent in the President's lust-filled head. The Attorney General has no choice but to put her on trial for assassination. However, Beth has a secret weapon at her disposal: the flashiest lawyer in the country, an unabashed high-priced shyster, whom she loved while they were in law school together. She chose power then; now will she choose him?
