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....

Retired dentist after 37 yrs & with strong artistic interests left intensive reading until my latter years and am having a ball!
I could not put this audiobook down. The narrator was excellent he story capturing from the very beginning and a real pleasure to listen to.
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.
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.
John Grisham: Absolutely!!! Frank Muller: Not so much!!! Voice grates on my nerves!
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.
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.
