This is a new author for me. The main character and first person narrator of the story is attorney Carney Blake. Blake comes from a working class dysfunctional family of Irish alcoholics.
His boss at the large law firm is Carl Smith. He assigns him a class action law suit from India. He is to be the lead attorney for the first time in his career. Blake is to start proceedings to seize the U.S. asset of a chemical company responsible for the death of workers and a village in India due to a spill of toxic chemicals. The Indian court has found the company libel. It turns out the chemical company hires the major competitor of Blake’s law firm to defend it. Blake starts to become suspicious something is wrong when his boss avoids him. He feels he is in over his head at work, and his brother and father are in chaos.
The book is well written. The plot is twisting and turning as the suspense builds. The dialogue is strong and well-pointed, particularly in the courtroom sparing. This is one of those books that is hard to put down. If you enjoy legal thrillers, you will enjoy this book.
The book is about seven hours long. L. J. Ganser does an excellent job narrating the story. Ganser is an award-winning audiobook narrator.
