Michael was in a hurry. He was scrambling up the ladder at Drake & Sweeney, a giant D.C. firm with 800 lawyers. The money was good and getting better; a partnership was 3 years away. He was a rising star with no time to waste, no time to stop, no time to toss a few coins into the cups of panhandlers. No time for a conscience. But a violent encounter with a homeless man stopped him cold. Michael survived; his assailant did not. Who was this man? Michael did some digging, and learned that he was a mentally ill veteran who'd been in and out of shelters for many years. Then Michael dug a little deeper, and found a dirty secret, and the secret involved Drake & Sweeney. The fast track derailed; the ladder collapsed. Michael bolted from the firm and took a top-secret file with him. He landed in the streets, an advocate for the homeless, a street-lawyer. And a thief.More

Grisham as good as ever.
- Amazon Customer "Charlie"
Another Grisham Classic. Great read..
I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in the law and how there are honest lawyers around.
The way that the main character was able to put the welfare of the people he wanted to help above becoming rich from a profession known to generate high income.
Great narration with emphasis on the parts that needed it.
Yes indeed.. It kept me interested throughout the entire novel.
If you like John Grisham, this is another of his must reads. Highly recommended. As a matter of fact, I've listened to it twice since purchasing it :-)
