Description

Her Royal Highness, the Princess of Wales, was just an ordinary young woman when she was selected to be the prince's bride and future queen. Her wedding was a world-wide sensation. But she was deceived and betrayed before the honeymoon was over. Five months after a fairy-tale wedding, pregnant with the heir to the throne, she threw herself down a flight of stairs. Suicide attempts, illicit affairs, and paranoid beliefs that there were plots by the royals to kill her became the norm as the fairy tale turned into a horror story. After suffering degradation and humiliation at the hands of her husband, the princess takes the ultimate revenge. Afraid that her own attorney's may be lying to her, the princess reaches across the Atlantic and hires Marlowe James, a woman who doesn't put a price on loyalty. Marlowe has been dubbed the "burning-bed lawyer" by the news media because of her successful defence of women who kill their abusive husbands. In defending the princess, Marlowe not only has to do battle in the Old Bailey with barristers loyal to the Crown, she has to come to grips with her own feelings about a woman who was handed everything any woman would desire.
The explosive tale that will be exposed in the courtroom is one of jealous rage and unfulfilled desires of sexual deceit by one of the most powerful men on earth, and of bloody revenge enacted by a woman scorned.
