The Bully is a legal thriller that is the story of the inner-workings of a Massachusetts Probate and Family Court, the function of the judge, the duties of the register of probate and the relationships of the lawyers who practice law there.
From the heart of the City of Boston, the reader is taken to Taormina, Sicily, Rome, and Mexico City as Ted Eldridge, once again assumes the burden of representing a tortured wife, Maria, who files for divorce from her scoundrel of a husband. The Italian Men’s Club on Salem Street in Boston’s North End is a player in the drama for the protection of Maria and her four kids.
The trials that take place, the motion sessions, and the arcane rules of evidence that must be followed, highlight the dilemmas of the lawyers who practice family law while, at the same time, their personal lives play a tortured role in their attempts to meet their obligations.
