On the right side of the law. Sort of. Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. He works out of a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, fine leather chairs, a hidden gun compartment, and a heavily armed driver. He has no firm, no partners, no associates, and only one employee: his driver, who's also his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddy.

After writing some of the best legal thrillers it's hard to believe that John Grisham sat down and wrote this trashy book. There is nothing to like about the story or the characters. In the beginning we learn that the accused murderer is a hardcore low life who deserves to be in prison even if he didn't commit the heinous crime. Attorney Sebastian Rudd, like other Grisham lawyers, is challenging the rotten legal system from page one. Then we switch to cage fighting and betting on fighters that he owns a percentage of. At that point it's time to push the eject button and realize you have been duped by a famous name. Avoid this book.
