Overview

In this “fast-paced, wickedly funny” legal thriller, a small-town lawyer’s case against a Los Angeles record label turns into a deadly media circus (Publishers Weekly).
 
Living in the Northern California town of Foolsgold, widowed lawyer Oliver Gulliver is headed for a midlife crisis. It doesn’t help that his eighteen-year-old daughter Elora has fallen in love with alcoholic former rock star C.C. Gilley. But then C.C. quits drinking and gets to work on a comeback album. Things actually seem to be looking up—until C.C.’s car is stolen, with his priceless demo tape inside.
 
In no time at all, another band is all over the radio with C.C.’s song, and Oliver finds himself in Los Angeles working the biggest case of his life—suing a billion-dollar record company for plagiarism. But even as Oliver discovers his talent for charming the public, he finds out how nasty the music industry can get. When the stakes skyrocket from plagiarism to murder, Oliver will have to try C.C.’s case like his life depends on it—because it does.
 
“Reeling off witty turns of phrase and uncanny plot twists, Deverell offers wonderfully sardonic takes on the worlds of music, law, Hollywood, Southern California and fatherhood--just for starters.” —Publishers Weekly
