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. By the time Rudy gets to court, a heavyweight corporate defense team is there to meet him. And suddenly he's in over his head, plunged into a nightmare of lies and legal maneuverings. A case that started small is exploding into a thunderous million-dollar war of nerves, skill, and outright violence - a fight that could cost one young lawyer his life, or turn him into the biggest rainmaker in the land....

There were 11 instances throughout the story where a short phase or sentence would repeat and 1 time where you heard "end of disk 8". Great story just clean up the production
Book was wonderful, and the narration was EXCELLENT. I just finished a Stephen King book narrated by King himself. It was horrid. Grisham hooked me on this one. I loved it.
The story was great the characters were very believable it was a very realistic story. The recording wasn't all that great. The quality was good but there were many parts that repeated the last sentence. Not sure why, but you can tell it was recorded from a cd. There was one part where it was interrupted by saying the story continues on the next disk. Although these interruptions were annoying it was not enough to detract from the story itself. I recommend it especially if you're a John Grisham fan. Hope this was helpful.
Frank Muller did a wonderful job bringing this story to life! And the story was great all the way until the near end - without giving anything away the ending felt like a cop-out. But worth a credit to get to enjoy 95% of this book.
Say something about yourself!
This book is Grisham good as always. I liked it very much. Good boy, bad enterprise.
My fiance wanted to become a lawyer because of this book, and it is her absolute favorite. After listening to it, I can easily see why. This book will have you on the edge of your seat while you hear about Rudy Baylor and the case of a lifetime. It makes you feel for the characters and actually believe they could be real people that you could meet any day. This is how a story, a memorable story, that can even change a life, is crafted. This is now easily one of my favorite books, and I look forward to listening to more from John Grisham. Do yourself a favor, and do not pass up this book, it is worth every penny.
Love books, listen to 3-4 books a week, thriller and true crimes favorite.
The nararater makes this book come a live. The ending I felt was disappointing. Far from a thriller and not sure it's a mystery either, just an okay story. I don't regret the purchase.
Never, if it is narrated by Frank Muller!
This narrator ends almost all of his sentences in the tone of a question. I am having extreme difficulty listening to him.
I am not familiar enough with ebook narrators, however, sentences should be in statement form for the most part.
I may not finish. The narrator is that irritating.
I am anxious to start another ebook, and I will definitely take advantage of a trial listen next time.
