Tilly has the day from hell when she's sacked from her barristers' chambers in the morning, then finds her husband in bed with her former best friend in the afternoon. She escapes to her mother, Roxy—a sassy solicitor whose outrageous take on men, work and family life is the despair of her more conventional daughter. Roxy comes up with a radical plan for their future—they'll set up an all-female law firm which will only champion women who have been cheated, put upon, attacked, ripped off, or ruined by the men in their lives.

In court, Tilly finds herself up against Jack Cassidy, the smooth-talking, politically incorrect, legal love god who broke her heart at law school. Jack is fluent in three languages—English, sarcasm, and flirtation...but if he's so loathsome, then why is she committing Acute Lust in the 3rd Degree?

When a case lands on the doorstep that threatens to change all their lives, Tilly finds herself dangerously close to taking the law into her own hands.... Will Jack's cunning ways and expertise in emotional break-and-enter derail her quest for justice? Or will the women take on the boys...and win?

About the Author:

Kathy Lette first achieved succès de scandale as a teenager with the novel Puberty Blues, co-written with Gabrielle Carey, which was made into a film. After several years as a singer in a rock band, a newspaper columnist in Sydney and New York (collected in the book Hit and Ms) and as a television sitcom writer for Columbia Pictures in Los Angeles, her novels, Girls’ Night Out (1988), The Llama Parlour (1991), Foetal Attraction (1993), Mad Cows (1996) and Altar Ego (1998) became international bestsellers. Kathy Lette’s plays include Grommits, Wet Dreams, Perfect Mismatch and I’m So Happy For You Really I Am. She lives in London with her husband and two children.

Review:

"Kathy is in full sizzling form" * Ruby Wax * "It's a novel of comic genius" * Lorraine Candy, Elle * "Bawdy and wise-cracking...she has a terrific turn of phrase." * Daily Express * "Reliably hilarious...A smart, witty read." * Closer * "More joy from the Empress of Punning ...sharp, funny and very readable." * Jo Brand *
