All Grisham's novels tend to be forgettable for me, but I am always taken in by the subject matter (which is after all a part of my profession). They tend to be formulaic and this one is no exception. ( )

Not my favourite Grisham novel but a very interesting one. Watching how fast someone can rise and then fall in the worlds is utterly fascinating to me. ( )

The beginning of the book is quite interesting. However, it becomes a little boring as you proceed....the end is pretty much predictable....and even though the book is written well, it doesnt quite pack a punch like other Grishm novels......To sum up, a disappointing book ( )

One of Grisham's better yarns. A real rise and fall story. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385339658, Paperback)

The office of the public defender is not known as a training ground for bright young litigators. Clay Carter has been there too long and, like most of his colleagues, dreams of a better job in a real firm. When he reluctantly takes the case of a young man charged with a random street killing, he assumes it is just another of the many senseless murders that hit D.C. every week.

As he digs into the background of his client, Clay stumbles on a conspiracy too horrible to believe. He suddenly finds himself in the middle of a complex case against one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, looking at the kind of enormous settlement that would totally change his life—that would make him, almost overnight, the legal profession’s newest king of torts...
