One afternoon, lawyer Sandy Stern returns home to find his wife Clara dead in the garage. From that day on, Sandy begins to discover that he did not really know the woman he was married to for 31 years and that his life will now never be the same again. "Penguin Readers" is a series of simplified novels, film novelizations and original titles that introduce students at all levels to the pleasures of reading in English. Originally designed for teaching English as a foreign language, the series' combination of high interest level and low reading age makes it suitable for both English-speaking teenagers with limited reading skills and students of English as a second language. Many titles in the series also provide access to the pre-20th century literature strands of the National Curriculum English Orders. "Penguin Readers" are graded at seven levels of difficulty, from "Easystarts" with a 200-word vocabulary, to Level 6 (Advanced) with a 3000-word vocabulary. In addition, titles fall into one of three sub-categories: "Contemporary", "Classics" or "Originals". At the end of each book there is a section of enjoyable exercises focusing on vocabulary building, comprehension, discussion and writing. Some titles in the series are available with an accompanying audio cassette, or in a book and cassette pack. Additionally, selected titles have free accompanying "Penguin Readers Factsheets" which provide stimulating exercise material for students, as well as suggestions for teachers on how to exploit the Readers in class.

I started reading this book and hadn't seen the made for TV movie. It seemed so bad to start with, that I jumped ahead to chapter 10 or so. Chapter 10 was so good, I went back and made the effort to read the book from scratch. I didn't regret it. On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd rate it a 7. The legal intricacies obviously known by the author are what made the book interesting to me.
