What does a man really know about love?"Francis Widmer is a well-bred, beautiful, provocative young woman with a good mind. When she is raped by Harry Koslak, she decides to press charges. Her attorney father sends her to George Thomassy, as successful criminal lawyer. Thomassy, against his better judgment, involves himself in the case and finds himself attracted to Francine more than he cares to admit. Stein lays bare the unsavory, manipulative aspects of criminal law as he explores today's sexuality--its cruelties, hypocrisies, joys and mysteries. This fast, suspenseful, unusual love story is best seller material."-- Publishers Weekly "Bound to be a success!"-- The New York Times Book Review "Wonderful...full of unexpected twists and breathless turns."-- The Washington Post "Sure to cause a sensation...a fast-moving story that reveals the dark underside of unanswered love."-- Boston Herald American "Highly original. Stein gives readers what they want."-- Cleveland Press "Riveting...shocking...so many intriguing characters, as credible as they are memorable."-- King Features Syndicate "A timely, powerful story."-- Library Journal
