This was a wonderful book to read. John Grisham really shows some of the nasty tactics of litigators and companies. It really kept me wanting to read more.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters' descriptions were great. I really enjoyed these quirky characters who always found themselves in troubles and their relationship together. The book had lots of hilarious situations. A serious book at the same time, as it described the power of the pharmaceutical industries and the sleazy lawyers who represent them as well as those, often just as sleazy, who make a living taking them to court for putting dangerous drugs into the market. But honesty was not totally lost... With some sad cases getting help from honest lawyer... Not all are crooked. A good read. Recommended.

As with most Grisham novels, an excellent read. I found the conclusion especially satisfying. The lines between the 'good guys' and 'bad guys' are blurred, as is their outcome.

A satisfying read. As usual Grisham makes it easy for the reader to get involved with the characters and to care about what will happen next.

The "boutique" law firm of Finley and Figg just got a little bigger with the addition of lawyer David Zinc. Funny, good characters, with the emphasis on "character", and good courtroom theatrics.

An excellent book by Grisham about the craziness and insanity of the modern tort lawyer system that promises very vulnerable people their "justly-owed money that they have been somehow screwed out of.
Meanwhile, these over-blown "ambulance-chasers can get very rich for shaking down the business that they are going after. (John Edwards made 16 million off of 1 lawsuit!)
Grisham very accurately portrays the damage that this kind of lawsuit can do to everyone:the victims, the companies being sued, and the lawyers themselves.
This kind of lawsuit should definitely be reformed and Grisham does an excellent job in giving a very good portrayal of the flaws of our legal sytem!
