A Question of Privilege

Ken Klopper

Judges are there to judge or so they say. They listen to the evidence, evaluate it, apply the law and logical reasoning, and deliver a judgment or verdict. But Judges are also human beings with personalities, personal lives, and weaknesses.
What happens when these two worlds collide?
Enter the world of Judge William L Ment, a controversial judge with an eye and nose for beautiful women. Ment has all the skills and knowledge of a brilliant judge, but he also possesses strong intuitive faculties and his own special brand of logic. When a brutal murder takes place and Ment is the trial judge, this cognitive faculty takes over, and Ment finds himself on the trail of a serial killer. How will Ment assume the role of amateur sleuth without breaking all the rules?
