"Barrister Felicio Tagg, the wonderfully incompetent, unimpeachably unsuccessful hero of Victor Kline's 'Rough Justice', has trouble with justice too. At the bottom of the barristerial barrel, Tagg has never left the courtroom with winged victory perched on his shoulder. 'Like the much sought after but mythical, perfect circle, he just went round and round in a fixed groove, unbroken, undefiled and unimpeachably unsuccessful'. "Then briefed by mistake, he finds himself amongst the paddocks and pesticides of Cootamundra, pursuing both his client's missing stud bull and his disenchanted wife. Kline's use of language is appropriately erudite and occasionally fanciful, and he has a rare ability to be both oratorical and intimate. "A most engaging indictment of the lawyering trade." Graeme Blundell, The Sydney Morning Herald "Kline has written a very witty, entertaining and funny book, with a hero who despite, or perhaps because of his failings, is impossible to dislike." Greg Thom, The AustralianAbout the Author:
