Mr. Grisham has done it again; very good story about an unusual defense attorney Sebastian Rudd. His office is in a customized, bullet proof van since there are many who want to kill him. He has a bodyguard/driver who he saved from death row, and also acts as his legal aide.
This book is a mixture of different cases and clients he defends; cases no other lawyer would take.
