Description:

Tug Wyler finds himself embroiled in the mysterious malady of a sexy stripper who slipped on a banana peel during her signature act Cookie, an angel in stiletto heels, is by far the most popular performer at Jingles Dance Bonanza. To her devoted audience, she's a friend, therapist, and shoulder to cry on. When Tug meets an old pal at the club, he doesn't expect to pick up a new client, but he quickly realizes that the noble Cookie--dancing in a neck brace, each kick potentially her last--is in need of a committed champion.Righting a wrong is never a simple task for Tug, a sharp-witted and unorthodox trial lawyer who repeatedly finds himself in the middle of unusual cases and causes. But that doesn't stop him from trying. Believing that Cookie is the victim of a spine surgeon with a sloppy touch, Tug takes her case. But as he seeks both medical remedy and a fair shake for Cookie, he realizes a tad too late that sinister sights are trained on him. In" Cookie's Case," this offbeat lawyer will go further than he ever has for justice.

My Thoughts:

This book finds lawyer Tug Wyler defending himself against a former client.  Next up for him is a new client Cookie who works in strip club and has injury due to spinal surgery.  Also Tug meets Robert Killroy who is a mentally ill young man who had a car accident and lives with his Grandmother who is trying to get her grandson justice he needs.

The bigger issue in this book is Cookie and what she needs and whether she will ever get justice for what happened to her.  It seems the deeper Tug digs into this case the more confused he's getting. Just who had the most to gain from Cookie's Case?

This book had everything from a candy crush junkie of a wife, to children changing their names to Dirk and Summer, to one of her clients trying to collect on a dry-cleaning bill.  Which seems to be the running gag and reminds me of Better Off Dead where the paperboy is always trying to collect his $2.00.

I can't wait to see what this author has next in his Tug Wyler series!
