The protagonist, Alison, has attained professional success as an attorney of the London courts. But her personal life is dangerously close to total collapse: she drinks; she seems to be a binge drinker who is totally out of control. She also is cheating on her husband Carl (a controlling and stoic character, easily dislikeable). She’s also neglecting her 6-year old daughter, Matilda. And her affair with a senior attorney is a source of pure humiliation. No matter how many times Alison vows to clean-up her life, she never can keep the promises to herself. Alison is the lead attorney on a murder case: Her client is woman who has stabbed her husband to death as he slept. Ironically, as the story progresses, Alison can begin to see parallels between herself and her client.
