Publisher's Summary

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....

    "Loved it"

    I loved this book. The story is still relevant. It has intrigue, mystery, excitement and throughly captures the listener. The court room scenes are tremendous. I believe narration is award winning, making the book a success.

    "Best Grisham I've read/heard so far!"

    This was a near perfect novel for me! It had mystery, intrigue and most of all, a good narrator. Frank Muller has the perfect cadence, timing and tone! He reads with a wry wit and has great inflection that a John Grishom novel needs. It is a " feel good" David and Goliath story! It does sound a bit dated in a few places, but that didn't bother me at all , after all it was written over 10 years ago. If you love a good courtroom tale, then you need to get this book! It has renewed my interest in them, and also leaves me to want to download another by this author. Luckily, I think Mr. Muller does most, if not all his books, though I've never felt the need to publish a review. It has minor swearing, which I'm sensitive too, so that didn't bother either. Ii I would make one criticism, it would be for Audible, someone needs to edit this book! It has many places that repeat, and one time it even mentions to change the c.d. ! Still minor imperfections when it comes to how I feel about this book! Go get it!

    "Not what I have come to expect from Grisham"

    struggled to finish it. slow moving with too much filler. most of the main plot was pretty predictable . the end had a little bit of a twist though.

    "Another must read"

    Another spellbinding lawyer story by Grisham that prompts the reader or listener in my case to listen just a little bit longer or read more pages to learn a little bit more. Here we have a story of lawyers in a catfight who couldn't enjoy that!

    "Great story... but editing, really?"

    I really enjoyed this story. It has it all, great drama, boy finds girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl. It is annoying, however, that many, more than ten times even, the editing is so poorly done that a whole sentence or two is repeated. Isn't there quality control post editing? Really? Come on, you can do better. Otherwise, a great, riveting story that's hard to put down. Enjoy!

    I love reading but love listening even more. I listen while riding in my car, going to sleep at night, working on the computer, or just having a cup of tea.

    "Excellent"

    I love John Grisham but i chose this book because of the length of it and the voice of the narrator. I will look for more books that Frank Muller narrates.

    "Production issues"

    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

    "Spellbinding"

    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.

    Story
    "Enjoyed from the beginning to the end"

    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.
