The story is great (so far), and Frank Muller does a fantastic job. But I am honestly appalled that I had to spend my hard earned money on a recording that no one from the production team bothered to listen all the way through. I'm only just getting to the end of the first track and already at least 5 times there have been moments when an entire sentence is repeated by mistake. It pulls you right out of the story and spoils the mood. Just now I had a voice inform me that "the story is continued on disc 8"... honestly if a child submitted this in school as a finished product he'd be failed.
This is my first experience with substandard recordings as a fault of the people converting the audio to a digital format and I am bitterly disappointed.

This is my first review of a book. Perhaps it is odd that I would review this book after listening for the last five years to so many books and most of those books being science fiction, but this one is an incredible tale with suspense, intrigue, humanity, humor, triumph, defeat, sadness, joy and exceptional likability. Rudy Bailer is a young lawyer, not yet out of college who lands a big case because of a chance meeting in a less than enjoyable class in his last semester of law school. John Grisham draws and paints his characters with life and makes them believable and sympathetic. The main character is humorous and down to earth. Those of you who enjoy courtroom dramas will certainly enjoy this one. It's one of the best of his novels I've ever read (listened to).
The only, ever so slightly noticeable, detraction is that it is dated. Car phones and fax machines and very little mention of computers. That being said, it's a wild ride making you want more.
I'm sad it's over...
