Publisher's Summary

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.

Great Court Room Drama

This is my second book by Victor Methos. In this book Noah Bryce is a personal injury attorney who primarily settles his cases out of court. He has a rule never to take “invisible clients”, which is a legal term for a person that lives but does not legally exist.

In this story his ex wife asks Noah to take on the case of her cousin’s son Joel Whiting who is twelve years old. Joel was poisoned after taking a cough medicine which contains acetonitrile which converts into cyanide inside the body.

The book is well written and the pace is fast. The plot is straight forward with a small twist. Some of the characters appear interesting, and I wondered if the characters would appear in future books. The courtroom scenes are electrifying. The courtroom dialog kept me glued to the book. I always enjoy a story that champions the underdog. Methos has Noah explain the legal jargon so it’s understandable to non legal readers. There is an underlying moral dilemma to the story that adds spice but also food for thought. The book is a great legal thriller which is easy to read. Alexander Cendese did a good job narrating the book.

Don't bother!!

Any additional comments?

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.
