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....

    "The book that can change a life"

    My fiance wanted to become a lawyer because of this book, and it is her absolute favorite. After listening to it, I can easily see why. This book will have you on the edge of your seat while you hear about Rudy Baylor and the case of a lifetime. It makes you feel for the characters and actually believe they could be real people that you could meet any day. This is how a story, a memorable story, that can even change a life, is crafted. This is now easily one of my favorite books, and I look forward to listening to more from John Grisham. Do yourself a favor, and do not pass up this book, it is worth every penny.

    "Not bad, far from a must read."

    The nararater makes this book come a live. The ending I felt was disappointing. Far from a thriller and not sure it's a mystery either, just an okay story. I don't regret the purchase.

    "One more blockbuster for Grisham!"

    What an amazing book! I loved it as much as any of the Grisham books I have read, which is most of them. Such a rich and involved plot line, and the characters are some of Grisham's best. Frank Muller is one of the best narrators ever to read a book. He is sorely missed. You will not be disappointed with this one!! A+!

    I haven't "read" a book since 1998, just not interested....after the 50 Shades Trilogy, I have become an audio book addict! I am a very tough critic.

    "Don't let crappy sound in preview scare you!"

    I didn't purchase this book for quite some time because the preview sounded like cassette quality, rest assured, the book is a good sound quality and a great book to boot! Well worth the credit!

    "The Rainmaker great story"

    I thoroughly enjoy John Grisham's novels and this is no exception. Totally surprised by the endings but, hey that is what makes a good read. Frank Mullers narration was spell binding. Yes, I liked it.

    "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.
