Publisher's Summary

John Grisham has a new hero...and she's full of surprises.
The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer's career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track - until the recession hits and she gets downsized, furloughed, escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is one of the "lucky" associates. She's offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, after which there would be a slim chance that she'd get her old job back.
In a matter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about. Mattie Wyatt, lifelong Brady resident and head of the town's legal aid clinic, is there to teach her how to "help real people with real problems". For the first time in her career, Samantha prepares a lawsuit, sees the inside of an actual courtroom, gets scolded by a judge, and receives threats from locals who aren't so thrilled to have a big-city lawyer in town. And she learns that Brady, like most small towns, harbors some big secrets.
Her new job takes Samantha into the murky and dangerous world of coal mining, where laws are often broken, rules are ignored, regulations are flouted, communities are divided, and the land itself is under attack from Big Coal. Violence is always just around the corner, and within weeks Samantha finds herself engulfed in litigation that turns deadly.

Very sub-par for John Grisham

Would you try another book from John Grisham and/or Catherine Taber?

Yes, I love Grisham's earlier works

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Lackluster and unfulfilling

Would you listen to another book narrated by Catherine Taber?

Perhaps

Was Gray Mountain worth the listening time?

I'm very glad I did not purchase the unabridged version. The abridgement was painful enough.

Any additional comments?

Very disappointing compared to the Grisham classics.

Struggled to finish

Plodding plot, shallow charectetixation, horrible dialog, copout nonending. Avoid this one. Grisham at his worse.
