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 job 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.

Favourite Grisham Book

I love this book. Lots of plots within plots with the prevailing story being the inexperienced lawyer facing the massive firm. A true Favid and Goliath story. I prefer Grishams early books and think this is his best. Very good legal drama well read by the narrator.

Best audio book I've listened to.

The story was great, well written and
the narrator nailed it +++.
Kept me spellbound through the whole story. Laughs, sadness and characters I was endeared to, others I loathed, brought about by a great author and phenomenal narrator.

Great story

Love the story. Grisham is a brilliant writer however the recording for this one seemed to be quieter than others.
