Publisher's Summary

It's summer in Memphis. The sweat is sticking to Rudy Baylor's shirt and creditors are nipping at his heels. Once he had aspirations of breezing through law school and punching his ticket to the good life. Now he doesn't have a joy or a prayer...except for one: an insurance dispute that leaves a family devastated and opens the door for a lawsuit, if Rudy can find a way to file it. By the time Rudy gets to court, a heavyweight corporate defense team is there to meet him. And suddenly he's in over his head, plunged into a nightmare of lies and legal maneuverings. A case that started small is exploding into a thunderous million-dollar war of nerves, skill, and outright violence - a fight that could cost one young lawyer his life, or turn him into the biggest rainmaker in the land...

Wow! This audio book is fantastic!

This book was fantastic! Both the story and the reader made it one of my most enjoyable audiobooks. Just when you thought the book was getting predictable, Grisham weaved in a twist that kept you glued to your seat. I especially enjoyed the readers ability to sound out the various characters. My favorite was the defense lawyer Leo Drummon (spelling?). The slow southern way of speaking was classic. A can't say enough good about this book.
