Christopher Buckley writes another nice read about politics and the judiciary in his satiric fashion. Following the trial of First Lady Elizabeth Tyler MacMann and witty lawyer (and former fiance) Boyce Baylor, who is charged to lead her defense, provides a great story. Clever satire drives the entire book and it's hard to find a stopping point as the court case of the Millennium twists and turns. Buckley's characters are varied and interesting, working with and against one another in hilarious fashion. At the end of it all, we are shown how truth doesn't matter in our justice system, just perception. Buckley hits the nail on the head with that message, and conveys it with full mocking scorn and contempt, wrapped up in his smart humor.
