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 book!!!"

    Another great book but a head scratcher ending!!! One thing I know about John Grisham the good guy doesn't ride off in the sun set he wins the fight but loses the war!!! I can't wait to read another book by him though.

    "great story but the narration has gliches"

    periodically the narration would repeat a couple of sentences without my touching the rewind buttons. It's not so frequent that it interferes with the story but it is noticable.

    Story
    "Not much happens. Great narrator"

    Sadly this narrator has passed away. Great voice. The story was pretty good albeit unexciting. I had missed some parts of the story because sometimes I listen while in bed and fall asleep. I would try to back track but sometimes I didn't quite find my spot but it doesn't matter because there are no plot twists to track. Grisham is a fine writer with a funny sense of humor. Runaway Jury was much better. Get that one instead.

    "Slow. Less than satisfying."

    Too much build up for too little payoff. Which, indeed is much like a real trial but I come to legal thrillers to get away from my day job of trying cases ...

    The hurdles this young man passes through to get to happiness is heroic. I loved this book.
