Lawyer Paul Newton makes a good living doing personal injury lawsuits. For him, broken bones, split skulls, or severed limbs are sure money-grabbers. The last thing he wants to get involved in is a case where the injuries are psychological. For sure, he wants nothing to do with Multiple Personality Disorder--something he considers hocus-pocus. When his office manager persuades him to listen to Judith Hoople, he gives the woman fifteen minutes, but her story captivates him and the man who treated her was so slimy, both his sensibilities and his greed are shocked. Judith was repeatedly abused as a child, including being involved in a satanic sex-cult and developed MPD to escape the trauma. As an adult, she sought aid to quit smoking and her therapist, Red Greely, discovered the MPD and saw a chance to make himself famous--as well as an outlet for his sexual demands. For Newton, all the ingredients are there...a harm, a perpetrator, and insurance to pay for it. The malpractice was so severe, Newton is certain the case will settle before trial. He doesn't count on an opposing lawyer who'll do anything to win his case...or Greely's nasty decision to add a rider limiting his insurance in cases of sexual misconduct.
