This would be just an ordinary book were it not for the individuals involved, mainly the man. He is a judge with a perfect reputation, but when he becomes involved in this relationship all common sense flies out the window.
I've included this in the "mental health" section because this would most definitely be an interesting case study for psychologists.

There is nothing really earth shattering in here, but I do highly recommend it.
