    Brings to mind Kathy Lette and Jilly Cooper Mail on Sunday UK Bridget Jones on speed The Guardian UK Ab Fab meets Sex In The City The Telegraph UKFull of high octane court room drama, lashings of comedy and crackling with un zipped one liners, Sex Lies Litigation is a mad cap cavort through London s ancient Inns of Court where traditions date bate to before the 15th Century Narrated by Evelyn Hornton, a fledgling barrister in Manolo Blahniks, cuts a swathe of mayhem through London s stuffy bewigged and robbed barristers while wrangling her eccentric circus of Notting Hill and Mayfair friends With the voice of her feisty Gran in her head, Evelyn s determination to keep a dignified distance between her stuffy professional life and utterly bonkers personal life, goes spectacularly awry when on her first day in court sick with nerves and woefully unprepared she discovers the opposing council is her ex boyfriend Giles a man who used to lick creme fraiche off her belly Before she caught him In flagrante delicto with another All dignity is swept aside especially given her client is Keith Conan The Head Butter of Shepherds Bush As Evelyn puts it, It was going to be one hell of a Bad Lipstick Day the sort of day that comes off on your teeth Sex Lies Litigation is the first instalment in a three book series tracing Evelyn Hornton s adventures in and out of court as she takes on London s criminal world with a dash of panache and than a pinch of Ab fab madness.
