Mark, Todd, and Zola came to law school to change the world, to make it a better place. But now, as third-year students, these close friends realize they have been duped. They all borrowed heavily to attend a third-tier, for-profit law school so mediocre that its graduates rarely pass the bar exam, let alone get good jobs. And when they learn that their school is one of a chain owned by a shady New York hedge-fund operator who also happens to own a bank specializing in student loans, the three know they have been caught up in The Great Law School Scam.
But maybe there's a way out. Maybe there's a way to escape their crushing debt, expose the bank and the scam, and make a few bucks in the process. But to do so, they would first have to quit school. And leaving law school a few short months before graduation would be completely crazy, right? Well, yes and no....
Pull up a stool, grab a cold one, and get ready to spend some time at The Rooster Bar.

Grisham's Lost His Edge
In all fairness, this review was based on an inadvertently purchased abridged version. I've had the error corrected and will listen to the unabridged version, which is the version that I thought I had. I'm hoping that I'll find the characters and story to be more fully developed and the writing less simplistic in style. I've been a John Grisham fan since he first appeared on the writing scene and have read and always looked forward to reading/listening to all of his novels. That's why this one was such a disappointment.

Did not realize this was abridged version!
I like the ease and excitement of Grisham's novels and I think I would like this one as well had I listened to the unabridged version. However, I didn't notice this was abridged and so the story felt very disjointed and incomplete to me. The performance felt a little forced at times. Overall the story is good and I can see its potential but I can't really go back to the unabridged version since I know the ending............
