Book description
After twelve years as a human rights lawyer, Chris is now bankrupt, and the only work he can get is giving pro bono advice at a legal centre on how to sue a cat. This isn't paying his creditors, but the presence of a colleague who looks more like Catherine Zeta-Jones than any other socialist he's ever met, almost makes up for this.

In desperation, Chris takes on a job with South Pacific Group Insurance, the world's fastest-growing insurance company, and a place where injured plaintiffs should just stop moaning and die. Which, Chris notices, they happen to be doing at an alarming rate.

Chris decides to conduct his own investigation into South Pacific, and The Ambulance Chaser becomes the brilliantly funny tale of what can happen when a corporation breaches capitalism's golden rule - never employ an honest lawyer.
