Synopsis: What does a man really know about love?"Francis Widmer is a well-bred, beautiful, provocative young woman with a good mind. When she is raped by Harry Koslak, she decides to press charges. Her attorney father sends her to George Thomassy, as successful criminal lawyer. Thomassy, against his better judgment, involves himself in the case and finds himself attracted to Francine more than he cares to admit. Stein lays bare the unsavory, manipulative aspects of criminal law as he explores today's sexuality-its cruelties, hypocrisies, joys and mysteries.

Product Description: What does a man know about love? This is the story of three very different men in love with the same woman. It is also the story of that woman, Francine Widmer: twenty-seven, beautiful, intelligent, resourceful, and insistent on running her own life. Suddenly, control of Francine's life is torn apart when she is raped. Finding the doctors and police indifferent to the outrage of rape, yet wanting revenge, Francine selects as her instrument the best criminal lawyer in the country. As the story expands in ever-widening circles, and each brilliantly rendered character brings his or her case to center stage, we come to realize how varied the shapes of love are, the secrets of its dark side, and why revenge is the universal human emotion most people prefer to hide. This is the triumphant story about the true source of all of life's difficult problems and exciting opportunities: other people.
