Publisher's Summary

Lisa and Joe Stone, married for 20 years and sole partners in their small law firm in Henry County, Virginia, handle less-than-glamorous cases: domestic disputes, personal injury settlements, or a plethora of complaints from their cantankerous client Lettie VanSandt ("eccentric" by some accounts, "certifiable" by others). When she dies in a freakish incident, the Stones think it's within the realm of possibility that she was cooking meth in her trailer. But details soon emerge that lead them to question how accidental Lettie's demise actually was, and settling her peculiar estate becomes endlessly complicated.

Before long the Stones find themselves embroiled in a corporate conspiracy that will require all of their legal prowess - not to mention some serious guts - for them to survive. Meanwhile Lisa is making secret, herculean efforts to shield Joe from an egregious error that she would give anything to erase entirely, even as his career - and her own - hangs in the balance.

In The Jezebel Remedy, Clark gives us a stunning portrait of a marriage, a gripping courtroom drama, and a relentlessly entertaining story that is full of inventions, shocks, and understanding.

    "Martin's best book so far!"
    Any additional comments?

    Well done! First book I have listened to with Morgan Hallett as narrator. She did a wonderful job.

    "Great story with interesting characters!"

    this was a well-written story with interesting characters that kept my interest which is sometimes hard to do. I particularly enjoyed the character of Letty!

    Due to my job, I'm constantly in my car. Audible occupies my time and enables me to read some great books. I love Audible!

    Story
    "Great book, lamentable narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Martin Clark captures the sense of a small southern town in the foothills of Virginia's Blue Ridge. Well-paced, with plenty of suspense that builds right to the end.


    What other book might you compare The Jezebel Remedy to and why?

    It's comparable to his other works, particularly The Legal Limit. But overall, it has more moments of hilarity, much like The Many Aspects of Mobile Home Living. His writing is in the same vein as Carl Hiassen, but without the jaded cynicism.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Morgan Hallett?

    I think a male who can capture the cadence of the southern drawl and its rhythms would have served better. All of her male characters sounded the same, and she is obviously unfamiliar with southern accents. She also made several mistakes in pronunciation where she should have known better. (For instance, firing a shot across one's "bow" is not pronounced like the ribbon on a gift-wrapped present.)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes; well, maybe two or three sittings, to eat, sleep, and take pee breaks.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to Clark's next offering, however long it takes.
