Tracy Edingfield’s revelatory novel takes an unflinching look at the practice of law. Defying genre labels, this is a political satire of the heavy responsibilities shouldered by lawyers, but it’s also a tale of newbie associate, Cooper Bach, recovering from devastating loss. As she emerges from her crucible, Coop takes up life of a rigorous litigator, answering the ever-increasing and seemingly impossible demands of her clients and law partners.
If there’s anything to love in their new associate, her bosses will snuff it out, but neither counted on others to stunt Cooper’s transformation into a hired gun. A grumpy judge, a drug-addicted artist, and a sexy bartender raise objections to Lucifer’s plan. Their message is simple: you can’t have her, Psycho & Satan.
