About Privileges and Immunities:
Two Army couples stationed in Frankfurt, Germany in 1984-1985 – Roger, a combat company commander; Bryan, an Army defense attorney; Zoey, Roger’s spouse, a bartender who knew Bryan while he attended law school; and Zara, Bryan’s wife, Moroccan jazz bassist, who met Bryan at Le Chat Noir in Paris.

Both wives, sexual firecrackers. One fervently loyal to her husband; the other, fervently bending rules to their breaking points. Zoey’s dark obsessions cause her to forfeit her life at the hands of an assailant she trusts. The quest for justice and the adherence to dying wishes in Zoey’s diary led to fulfilment for some but cost three more lives by their achievement.
