    The life of a 10-year-old black girl is shattered by two drunken and remorseless young men. The mostly white town reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime, until her father acquires an assault rifle and takes justice into his own outraged hands.

    Paul Cragin says: "Lively voices tell gripping plot"
    "Entertaining Reading"

    What did you love best about A Time to Kill & The King of Torts?

    The stories were very different, and evoked different emotions, and thats what I like when reading a book...becoming intimately involved with the characters and the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Time to Kill & The King of Torts?

    In a Time to Kill, the beginning scene that described the horrible act that took place set the scene for the rest of the book. Strangely enough, I enjoyed the ending of The King of Torts...I don't think many people would like the ending.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Beck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, Mr. Beck narrated another Grisham book that I listened to...he does a great job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    In The King of Torts, I was quite taken aback with the greed. At least for the time being, I am thinking differently about the pursuit of wealth. Without purpose beyond oneself, what is the point of accumulating more money than one can sensibly spend?

    Michael was in a hurry. He was scrambling up the ladder at Drake & Sweeney, a giant D.C. firm with 800 lawyers. The money was good and getting better; a partnership was 3 years away. He was a rising star with no time to waste, no time to stop, no time to toss a few coins into the cups of panhandlers. No time for a conscience. But a violent encounter with a homeless man stopped him cold. Also available abridged.

    Tom says: "A Good Read"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend the book because it is paced properly for relaxed consumption. Good vacation book.


    What other book might you compare The Street Lawyer to and why?

    It compares favorably. I listen to a lot of books, and this one opened my eyes to the plight of the homeless.


    Which character – as performed by Frank Muller – was your favorite?

    I loved Mordecai...smart, brash, yet kind-hearted with the ability to judge character.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me sad at times about the human soul-our greed and selfishness. Yet some people care enough to devote their life's work to others...that made me smile.


    Any additional comments?

    The next time a homeless person asks you for the dollar that you can afford to spare, don't judge, don't second guess, just give it up!
