Martin Clark, "the new standard by which other works of legal fiction should be judged," now delivers his breakthrough novel. Lisa and Joe Stone, married for twenty years and sole partners in their small law firm in Henry County, Virginia, handle less than glamorous cases, whether 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Fast-paced and delightfully unpredictable…Not only do the frequent plot twists keep the reader glued to the page, but Clark’s depiction of life in rural Virginia and the depth and sensitivity of his character portrayals make the book memorable for much more than its clever legal machinations….Recommend the book to fans of Scott Turow and John Grisham, then don’t be surprised when they come back looking for more.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Its snappy repartee, shrewd regional observations, and quirky characterizations help one understand why Clark’s been compared to the likes of Elmore Leonard and, especially, Carl Hiaasen.” Kirkus Reviews
“A rollicking, comic legal thriller that encompasses false disguises, secret assignations, and a colorful case of scene-stealing secondary characters.” Booklist
