Then hang on for the ride of your life as Stan immediately steps into a rattlesnake's nest and has to do some fancy two-steppin' to avoid a lethal strike from his own clients.

"William Manchee could be Dallas' answer to John Grisham.... Just like Grisham's books, the protangonist appears to be a thinly veiled version of Manchee. The novel follows Stan Turner... as he moves to open his law practice and becomes involved with an insurance scam that ends up with his wife being falsely accused of murder. It sounds like just the kind of potboiler that Grisham is known for. Let's just hope Manchee doesn't option any of his books to movie producers..." (Dallas Observer)
After reading that this is a "must read", I was looking forward to an exceptional book. I was very disappointed. The plot lines were predictable with no depth or interesting twists (with the exception of an attempt at the end). I also thought the narrator's reading was bland and unemotional.
