Andy Prescott is the most laid-back young lawyer in Austin, Texas. Specialising in traffic law, he operates from a small room above a ramshackle tattoo parlour. He rides a trail bike and spends way too much time drinking beer in the sunshine. Ambition has never been Andy's strong point - he prefers to take it easy. That is, until one of Texas's wealthiest men walk into his office. On the spot, billionaire Russell Reeves retains Andy as his lawyer and, in exchange for some easy legal work, pays him more money than he has ever earned before. Andy's life is transformed. But nothing comes for free. Russell is a desperate man whose sole aim is to save his eight-year-old son, Zach, who is dying from leukaemia. He is prepared to do anything - even if it means putting Andy's life in danger…

"A Jolly Good Yarn!"
It's quick pace and likeable characters.
Andy himself, he's a good guy, if a bit flawed - basically human.
He has a good adaptable voice for story telling, young and old, male and female characters, he makes them alll believable.
If I had the time, yes!
This is an easy listen, with interesting characters. There are a couple of cycle chases which take place, very descriptive, they reminded me of car chases in a movie, if you like that sort of thing.
"The Common Lawyer"
I enjoy Mark Gimenez's books and this was no exception - although it took a while to get going so that we knew about our character - we seemed to spend a long time establishing just how 'cool' he is, but once it got going, I enjoyed it - certainly easy listening. However, the narration was dreadful - Christopher Ragland absolutely gabbled his way through it at top speed as if he had somewhere more exciting to be. A shame.
"Young, fresh approach to law in Austin, Texas"
the narration of the book is great and well in sync with the characters in the book, it takes a light hearted stance which is how the book portrays this young lawyers life in Teaxas
it`s easy going.. after reading several heavy, indepth law based fiction books, which were very good, this was a nice light alternative before the next complicated one
Not sure if he`s narrated any before that I`ve listened to, but liked the style and characterization alot
Not really, not that type of book, but very enjoyable
"Good Story, Great Narrator"
The plot was a bit obvious (some of the twists w were entirely predictable) but this was more than made up for by good writing and genuine dialogue. The narrator is excellent, compelling and highly impressive during two -way and three-way conversation. Recommended.
"Enjoyable but not his best."
Not as good as the Accused but I'm enjoying his work. Looking forward to more listening. Hope you enjoy too.
