(From the author):
Meet Evers Wheeling of Norton, North Carolina. A semidissolute judge, undistracted by children, hobbies, or a fulfilling marriage, he's moving down the road to nowhere at a furious clip-until the morning he's confronted by Ruth Esther English, an attractive young woman whose dim-witted brother happens to be up on drug charges.
Within days, Evers is the Englishes' reluctant coconspirator abetted by his pothead brother Pascal (he of the double wide trailer) and Pascal's faux-white-trash cohorts. And his suddenly outlandish life includes an interstate treasure hunt, a terrible act of marital vengeance, a sleezy antiques dealer, twice-stolen money, a mysteriously valuable letter, a baffling murder trial, and a love-interest attorney who considers him the poster boy for sexist and racist legal establishment-not to mention the alabaster tears miraculously cried by Ruth Esther.
Combining high comedy and existential, even spiritual compulsion, Martin Clark has converted every risk he's taken into high-test storytelling that's as fresh as the infant century.
