Publisher's Summary

The partners at Finley & Figg—all two of them—often refer to themselves as “a boutique law firm.” Boutique, as in chic, selective, and prosperous. They are, of course, none of these things. What they are is a two-bit operation always in search of their big break, ambulance chasers who’ve been in the trenches much too long making way too little. Their specialties, so to speak, are quickie divorces and DUIs, with the occasional jackpot of an actual car wreck thrown in. After twenty plus years together, Oscar Finley and Wally Figg bicker like an old married couple but somehow continue to scratch out a half-decent living from their seedy bungalow offices in southwest Chicago.

And then change comes their way. More accurately, it stumbles in. David Zinc, a young but already burned-out attorney, walks away from his fast-track career at a fancy downtown firm, goes on a serious bender, and finds himself literally at the doorstep of our boutique firm. Once David sobers up and comes to grips with the fact that he’s suddenly unemployed, any job—even one with Finley & Figg—looks okay to him.

With their new associate on board, F&F is ready to tackle a really big case, a case that could make the partners rich without requiring them to actually practice much law. An extremely popular drug, Krayoxx, the number one cholesterol reducer for the dangerously overweight, produced by Varrick Labs, a giant pharmaceutical company with annual sales of $25 billion, has recently come under fire after several patients taking it have suffered heart attacks. Wally smells money.

A little online research confirms Wally’s suspicions—a huge plaintiffs’ firm in Florida is putting together a class action suit against Varrick. All Finley & Figg has to do is find a handful of people who have had heart attacks while taking Krayoxx, convince them to become clients, join the class action, and ride along to fame and fortune. With any luck, they won’t even have to enter a courtroom!

It almost seems too good to be true.

And it is.

    Story
    "Not one of John Grisham's best, but still good."
    Would you listen to The Litigators again? Why?

    Probably not. It was not one of my favorite Grisham novels.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It just seemed a bit 'simple' compared to some of his other stories - needed a bit more suspense, perhaps.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it took me about 3 days to finish it.

    Story
    "Likable Lawyers?"

    Even the most unlovable of them have their humanity and kinship to us all and none more than the three most unlikely partners (four counting the secretary) one is ever likely to encounter since the hey day of Dewey, Cheatum & Howe (Three Stooges, if you're wondering). Attorneys are not well loved anyway but these guys really take the cake... but they grow on you. It's funny, and very human and sometimes the good guys come out on top. Law and Order it ain't, but boy what fun this was. I could hardly wait till the end and LOVED the old one-two knock out score against big corporate bad-guys!!! Like the three-stooges approach to legal services, you remember, Able, Unable and Pitiful and we got 2 outta three!!! LOVED this and may actually make me a Grisham fan!

    "Pure Grisham. Fun to read."
    Would you listen to The Litigators again? Why?

    I recommend the book. It's a typical John Grisham story, fast paced, nice twists about the end of the book.


    What about Dennis Boutsikaris’s performance did you like?

    Dennis makes a great performance reading the book. However, an hour and a half before the book was over it sounded like different voices were reading the sentences. I must say it was annoying.

    "BORING ..."

    I am a big John Grisham books. I know there were a couple there were not especially different but most were very good for passing time but this one I was not able to finish. I had to leave it after 1.5 hours of listening, incredibly boring.

    "Snooze fest!"

    Who is this guy, and what has he done with John Grisham? Wasn't witty, interesting, thought prvoking, or suspenseful...I only finished it because I had paid for it. So there are good lawyers and sleezy lawyers. Nuff said!

    "Forgeddaboutit."

    A very slow-paced and depressing cast of characters. After listening until it put me in a depression - I took my anti-depressant and switched to another book. Can't believe this one was written by John Grisham; whose books I normally enjoy.

    "Engrossing plot. John Grisham at his best!"

    I really like Grisham's book. I couldn't let go of this one. I specially liked the way the protagonist turns his life around only to discover what really matters to us as human beings.
