If there's two things this last bout of extreme weather has taught me - don't try to use the much vaunted SkyMuster for anything and don't think you'll get much reading done when you're running around digging trenches for water to run off.

From the Blurb:

Peter Tanner left the flashy world of commercial law following the tragic death of his wife. Now, as a criminal defence barrister, he crosses paths with some of the less desirable but wealthy members of the nation’s underbelly.

Hugh Walker, 32, a successful lawyer with an attractive girlfriend and executive office view, seemingly has it all. So why does he identify more with his resident cockroach than Atticus Finch, his childhood hero?

Could it be because he is cheating on his girlfriend and representing greedy insurance companies instead of the vulnerable underdogs who he always thought he'd be defending? Has his good side deserted him? Is there a way back?
