    It's summer in Memphis. The sweat is sticking to Rudy Baylor's shirt and creditors are nipping at his heels. Once he had aspirations of breezing through law school and punching his ticket to the good life. Now he doesn't have a joy or a prayer...except for one: an insurance dispute that leaves a family devastated and opens the door for a lawsuit, if Rudy can find a way to file it.

    Overall

    This is my first review of a book. Perhaps it is odd that I would review this book after listening for the last five years to so many books and most of those books being science fiction, but this one is an incredible tale with suspense, intrigue, humanity, humor, triumph, defeat, sadness, joy and exceptional likability. Rudy Bailer is a young lawyer, not yet out of college who lands a big case because of a chance meeting in a less than enjoyable class in his last semester of law school. John Grisham draws and paints his characters with life and makes them believable and sympathetic. The main character is humorous and down to earth. Those of you who enjoy courtroom dramas will certainly enjoy this one. It's one of the best of his novels I've ever read (listened to).

    The only, ever so slightly noticeable, detraction is that it is dated. Car phones and fax machines and very little mention of computers. That being said, it's a wild ride making you want more.

    I'm sad it's over...
