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....

    "Great road trip book!"

    This book was so exciting and the characters were clever! The narrator did a great job with the voices and made me feel like I could escape into this story while on a long road trip down the coast of California.

    "Great, but needs a recording update"

    Only problem for me is that the audio engineer messed up a lot. No less than 15 segments were repeated, including a "please continue listening on disc 8". Otherwise 5 stars.

    "Great!!"

    Great book!!! But it needs to be edited, repeated itself approximately 10 times at the start of new chapters or new paragraphs.

    "Very good but not great"

    A good read but not top notch for John Grisham. It follows his theme of victims wins over big business.

    Story
    "Obviously dubbed from CD to Audible!!!!"
    Would you try another book from John Grisham and/or Frank Muller?

    John Grisham: Absolutely!!! Frank Muller: Not so much!!! Voice grates on my nerves!


    What didn’t you like about Frank Muller’s performance?

    Frank Muller always seems to be adding to much extra emphasis on the end of words and sentences like he might always be asking a question.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointed that several times lines were repeated. It took me a little while to realize that this book was obviously dubbed from a CD. When I heard "This book continues on disc 8" I realized why so many times before and after certain lines were repeated. It makes it hard to keep track sometimes, kind of like Ground Hog Day: it plays over and over again! Would be nice if they could get that fixed so that the next person doesn't deal with it. That was a bigger deal to me than Frank Muller's voice.
