2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When brilliant young law school graduate Eve Nyquist came to the big city to join the firm of ace trial lawyer Gordon Moon, she had no idea she would be appointed third chair for the defense team in the trial of the young century, that she would find romance in a revolving restaurant high above the city, that she would be asked to cross examine an expert witness on a subject she knows nothing about, and that she would be threatened with death deep in the bowels of an old movie theatre. Probable Claus is a comic novel, a parody of the Big Trial legal thriller genre, a fair-play detective story, an inspiring Christmas story, and, oh, so much more!"--Publisher description
