When three men announce that they are suing the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm for reverse sex discrimination––claiming that they were not hired because they were men––Mary DiNunzio and Bennie Rosato are outraged. To make matters worse, their one male employee, John Foxman, intends to resign, claiming that there is some truth to this case.
The plaintiffs' lawyer is Nick Machiavelli, who has already lost to Mary once and is now back with a vengeance––determined to not only win, but destroy the firm. It soon becomes clear that Machiavelli will do anything in his power to achieve his end...even after the case turns deadly. The stakes have never been higher for Mary and her associates as they try to keep Machiavelli at bay, solve a murder, and save the law firm they love...or they could lose everything they've worked for.
