For high-powered personal injury attorney Noah Byron, the good things in life come with a price tag - cars, houses, women. That's why he represents only cases that come with the possibility of a nice cut of the action. But as a favor to his ex-wife, he meets with the mother of twelve-year-old Joel, a boy poisoned by tainted children's medicine. While the official story is that a psycho tampered with bottles, the boy's mother believes something much more sinister is at work...and the trail leads right back to the pharmaceutical company.
As Noah digs deeper into the case, he quickly finds himself up against a powerful corporation that will protect itself at any cost. He also befriends young Joel and breaks the number one rule of personal injury law: don't make it personal. Faced with the most menacing of opponents and the most vulnerable of clients, Noah is determined to discover the truth and win justice for Joel - even if it means losing everything else.

Gripping courtroom drama!
- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"
This is not a legal thriller, but it is a sappy little love story suitable for 13 year olds. I'm not an attorney but I am under the impression that the prosecution's witness, while on the stand, would not be allowed to lecture and belittle the plaintiff's attorney, and I seriously doubt the plaintiff's attorney would have taken it. Moreover, such a lecture would not have wrecked the plaintiff's case, as it did in the book. Ok, that's the worst part. Halfway through the book I was thinking MAYBE 3 stars. The book went downhill from there. I would not have finished the book had I not been on a long drive.
The narrator has a good voice, but he delivers every sentence as if he is leading a cavalry charge. I would not listen to another book by this narrator (nor by the author).
However, if you are looking for a good legal thriller, I would recommend "Death On A High Floor". I've listened to it twice, a year apart, and enjoyed both times. The plot is intricate and the narration is excellent.
