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?

Don't miss Christopher Buckley, Steve Martin, and other humorists discussing their craft at the New Yorker Festival.

    "Pick this if you need a laugh"

    This is one of the most humorous contemporary books I’ve listened to. I imagine that it would be even more enjoyable if you like trial novels (which I usually do not). The satire holds up throughout the novel, and Grover Gardiner is a great narrator – He pulled off the reading without “going over the top” which I find often happens in audio versions of satire.
