    As Clay Carter digs into the background of his client, a young man charged with a random street killing, he suddenly finds himself in the middle of a complex case against one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, looking at the kind of enormous settlement that would totally change his life - that would make him, almost overnight, the legal profession's newest king of torts...

    I have been getting more and more disgusted with Grisham. It seems like Clay Carter, Grisham got stuck by the bug of fame, money and all that comes with it after his first book. His books have become more and more like a movie with the entire plot laid out within the first 20 minutes. I wanted to like him again, but it didn't happen. This book was over after half the book. The ending was obvious because there was no other way for it to go but down. Grisham didn't even try to give us twists and turns on the way out. If you want a better read Sue Grafton, Linda Fairstein, Steve Martini Janet Evanovich or Perri O'Shanesay would be more enjoyable and leave Grisham to the masses who don't read enough to know better.

    "Olive Barstow was dead. She'd been hit by a car on Monroe Street while riding her bicycle weeks ago. That was about all Martha knew."

    Overall

    An American Library Association Best Book of 2005 and a Newbery winner. I highly recommend this book. It is a wonderful character study of a young girl dealing with the loss of pre-pubescence, lost of a potential friend and the potential loss of a dear family member. A great story full of hope.

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Anything with Scott Brick reading it is a joy on the ears! Frank Muller and Scott Brick - If they read it you can't go wrong!

    Cayce Pollard is an expensive, spookily intuitive market-research consultant. In London on a job, she is offered a secret assignment: to investigate some intriguing snippets of video that have been appearing on the Internet. An entire subculture of people is obsessed with these bits of footage, and anybody who can create that kind of brand loyalty would be a gold mine for Cayce's client. But when her borrowed apartment is burgled, she realizes there's more to this project than she had expected.

    Overall

    I tried for 45 minitues to enjoy this book. I still know little about the story line. The reader makes what may be a good book painful to listen to and difficult to understand. Try the "Hear Sample" before spending a book credit or money on this one. This may be a book to get in hard copy and read yourself.
