Meet Evers Wheeling, of Norton, North Carolina. A semi-dissolute judge, undistracted by children, hobbies, or a rewarding marriage, he's moving quickly down the road to nowhere--until the morning he's confronted by Ruth Esther English, an attractive young woman whose dim-witted brother is up on drug charges. Within days, Evers is their reluctant coconspirator, abetted by his pothead brother (he of the double-wide trailer) & faux white trash cohorts. & his suddenly outlandish life includes a treasure hunt, terrible marital vengeance, a sleazy antiques dealer, twice-stolen money, a mysterious letter, valuable postage stamps, a murder trial, & a love-interest attorney who considers him the poster boy for the sexist & racist legal establishment--not to mention the puzzling white tears cried by Ruth Esther. Combining high comedy & existential, even spiritual, compulsion, Martin Clark has converted every risk he's taken into high-test storytelling that's as fresh as the infant century.
