This is certainly one of Grisham’s better books which I thoroughly enjoyed. It has many of the author’s hallmarks: the descriptions of the crushing work-load endured by ambitious lawyers; cynicism over the money-making tactics; and best of all the pitting of the little man against the hugely wealthy, big law firms.
After a gripping start as 8 lawyers are held captive in fear of their lives by a homeless man, the book transforms into a morality tale when one of them experiences an Epiphany that changes his life from being a high-flying corporate lawyer into one paid little working with a small group of street lawyers trying to solve the legal problems of the homeless. After he discovers that an employee of his old firm has engaged in an illegal action against some homeless people the pace of the book takes off as street lawyers take on the big law firm, with some surprising results.
The narrator is first class.

It was alright. I loved the research and including the homeless but it felt there should have been a few extra mini stories should be included, like Ruby.
I also didn't like the narrator. His voice seemed too old for a guy in his early thirties and I didn't like how he stretched many of his words.
Sadly i did not enjoy this book at all, felt it was quite boring and not a very strong plot! The narrator grew on me , quite good!
