#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • Grisham returns to the courtroom and weaves a riveting tale of legal intrigue and corporate greed.

Grisham's sixth spellbinding novel of legal intrigue and corporate greed displays all of the intricate plotting, fast-paced action, humor, and suspense that have made him the most popular author of our time.

In his first courtroom thriller since A Time To Kill, John Grisham tells the story of a young man barely out of law school who finds himself taking on one of the most powerful, corrupt, and ruthless companies in America -- and exposing a complex, multibillion-dollar insurance scam. In his final semester of law school Rudy Baylor is required to provide free legal advice to a group of senior citizens, and it is there that he meets his first 'clients,' Dot and Buddy Black.

Their son, Donny Ray, is dying of leukemia, and their insurance company has flatly refused to pay for his medical treatments. While Rudy is at first skeptical, he soon realizes that the Blacks really have been shockingly mistreated by the huge company, and that he just may have stumbled upon one of the largest insurance frauds anyone's ever seen -- and one of the most lucrative and important cases in the history of civil litigation. The problem is, Rudy's flat broke, has no job, hasn't even passed the bar, and is about to go head-to-head with one of the best defense attorneys -- and powerful industries -- in America.

The story is superb. It’s by far the best book from Grisham I’ve read so far. And I’m so happy I listened to this narrator… he makes every minute passionate, interesting and inspiring. I even laughed at several moments across the read.

Book was a little slow and boring at times but then I could not put it down. Narrator could not have been better.

A very nice read, to bad the movie couldn't make it like how the book was written. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Pretty enjoyable. A decent read. It took a while to get interesting though, and a lot of the events towards the beginning were really unnecessary and somewhat boring. It took a while for me to grow to like Rudy, as he was quite selfish and prickish. I was really hoping for his (moral) character to be redeemed, and it was for the most part. There were quite a few laughs, and the trial was great fun.

I think I'm done with Grisham's books. This one felt abridged and I really don't care about how amazing a lawyer's life is. This had a nice ending but it wasn't worth it unless you're really into the law thing. Also the music that goes along with the book is way too loud and was annoying.

Is too the best Grisham. I loved this book. Some of the courtroom antics made me laugh out loud.

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Definitely worth the effort of overlooking scratches in some areas of the CDs.
