1) I am actually surprised a Grisham book is going to make my Top 5 list of 2007. Oh, but it is. This was a fantastic book. The characters and plot were so well developed, it was really tough putting this book down. The story is typical Grisham. A young lawyer graduates from Memphis State. He has no money and no job. In order to make ends meet, he is forced to work for the sleaziest lawyer in town. But he takes with him a case against an insurance company that, if he gets lucky, could mean millions in punitive damages. His luck is not in his favor when the sleazy lawyer disappears and leaves Rudy and a paralegal named Deck, to start up an office of their own and take the case against one of the toughest law firms in Memphis. Grisham does the layman justice by explaining law in a way anyone can understand. I always take something away from a Grisham book. The action does not stop until the end of this one. And I have to say I was surprised but definitely satisfied with the ending. A must read!

It is Grisham - what else can ya say? At least this one has an ending and not just a mish-mash of new characters used to disguise the fact that he cannot close. One believable character. He should be tied to a chair and caused to repeat completethesory, completethestory, completethestory 1004 times.

This is, in my opinion, one of John Grisham's best! Yet another book that you want to read instead of watching the movie!

Vintage John Grisham. He's a young lawyer who does yard work in exchange for rent. Then one little case begins to explode.... Grisham never fails to satisfy.
