Attorney Rep Pennyworth faces the client from hell: Charlotte Buchanan, author of And Done to Others’ Harm, a mystery of no particular merit. Charlotte contends that her 1997 novel is the basis for the 1999 film Contemplation of Death—and she wants to sue. Rep would blow her off, but Charlotte is the daughter of the CEO of the firm’s major corporate client, Tavistock Limited. Charlotte is resolute in demanding recognition, so Rep digs in, aided by his literature-addicted wife Melissa, and files suit.

By return mail comes a grisly death threat. Research shows the film’s director was Aaron Eastman, a Hollywood legend whose Red Guard should have been a box office and critical smash but oddly fell short. Eastman claims the Oscar balloting was sabotaged. Now he’s on the comeback trail and anxious not to derail. He and Rep talk and, bit by bit, the outline of a bizarre scheme to destroy the credibility of Eastman and Red Guard emerges. Hoosiers Rep and Melissa aren’t prepared for the larger licenses granted to political powerhouses, but they’re quick on the uptake and soon armed.

Mike Bowen, a trial lawyer practicing in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is the author of numerous mystery novels. He also wrote the entry on the American legal system for the Oxford Companion to Crime and Mystery Writing.

    Rep and Melissa Pennyworth attend a reenactment of a Civil War battle in Missouri while seeking a case for attorney Rep - and find a corpse instead. Melissa’s friend, Linda Damon, was emotionally involved with the victim before his death, and Linda’s husband, Peter, had motive, opportunity, and a Civil War saber that is drenched in the victim’s blood. Logically, this is a job for the police, but when Rep and Melissa are involved, logic is seldom a reliable guide.
