Overview

“Weeds in The Garden of Love” begins as Craig Andrews checks into the Sunset Motel and begins a gut-wrenching journey through a divorce.

At a meeting of the Men’s Group, Craig meets Garth Hodgson, an innocent ‘deadbeat dad’ being persecuted by Lorne Davis, the ruthless and philandering prosecutor for the Justice Department’s Office for support order enforcement known as the SOE.

The story takes an ironic twist when Garth enlists Craig's help to gather evidence on Davis aiming to destroy his career. The result is a fast-paced tale exposing dysfunctional people trying to solve life's problems through alcohol abuse, extra-marital affairs and cold-blooded murder.

"Weeds in The Garden of Love" also features good people facing tragedy with true courage and perseverance. It is not just a story about winning and losing.

It's about survival.

    Nice Read

    Overall i enjoyed the book. I did wonder several times what it was really about - Early on it seems to be looking at the destruction of a marriage due to alcoholism; then the focus shifted very strongly to documenting the unfair ways men are treated during divorce and child custody issues; then we had two unlikely detectives gathering evidence to ruin a man (and most deservedly so); finally the last couple of chapters culminates in four murders. The full conclusion for the murders is lacking, as is much time or energy for the violent events - its almost as if the author decided at the last minute to stick them on the end there, but didn't quite know what to do with them once he had them.
    Overall though, it's an interesting read. Does leave me with a lingering concern about the seemingly rather grave injustices perpetrated upon men in family courts.

    Really?

    The only mystery is why i read as many pages as i did. This is "psychiatry today", not a mystery novel. Please keep your day job. Sorry...
