Man moves to new town (Texas?) after divorce. Ex married a senator? And wants his beautiful house. Senator tries to get it under emminent domain for a highway. Guy gets paid after fighting it for a long time and burns the buildings down. Sheriff comes but does nothing?
Anyways. Looking for the story described above.
Don't remember any sex, but that doesn't mean it isn't in there.
Oh, and I don't think the ex wife knew it was his house.
Anyways. Thanks for any and all help!
