A pesar de su juventud, Clay Carter ve su futuro con cierto cinismo. Hace años que ejerce de abogado público de oficio y la situación no parece que vaya a cambiar. De ahí su resignación al abordar un nuevo caso que promete ser como tantos otros: debe defender a un adolescente acusado de asesinato, un hecho corriente en la ciudad de Washington. Sin embargo, cuando Clay empieza a indagar en el pasado de su cliente, se entera de que éste se hallaba bajos los efectos de un fármaco en fase de experimentación cuando cometió el crimen. El laboratorio creador del producto, ansioso de que el suceso no salga a la luz, le propone a Clay un pacto. Para cumplirlo, el joven abogado deberá estar dispuesto a jugar sucio. A pesar de sus reticencias iniciales, Clay acabará aceptando, al entender que ésta puede ser la oportunidad de su vida: la compañía es una de las empresas farmacéuticas más importantes del país. La misión promete ser dura por el complejo entramado de poder e intereses en juego, pero la tentación es demasiado grande: de la noche a la mañana, Clay podría convertirse en el nuevo rey de los pleitos.

En su nuevo thriller de corte legal, John Grisham pone al descubierto el enorme poder que poseen ciertos bufetes de abogados, a la vez que analiza las consecuencias que puede tener una ambición desmesurada.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katrina | 2/20/2014

    " This was pretty good. About a new lawyer trying to make big bucks taking on tort cases. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kendra | 2/18/2014

    " I'm so embarrassed that I picked up another one. I just couldn't sleep, and John Grisham is just so simple and predictible. Don't judge. My vacation is almost over and then I will be back to the library and away from anything written by John Grisham. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanine | 2/14/2014

    " I learned something new! I had to ask my husband what "Torts" were, since I had no previous understand. Amazing insight into the work of lawyers who go out there wherever possible to build a client base around a single issue. Now I see it everywhere with new eyes of understand of how it works in the bigger sense of the word! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 1/28/2014

    " A typical John Grisham novel, where the arrogance of power and greed becomes humiliated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nikki | 1/5/2014

    " I loved this book. It really shows what happened to many attorneys who get into wanting to make money more than caring about their clients. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shantanoo Desai | 1/5/2014

    " Its a roller coaster ride, an unusual rags to riches story from where Law and Order make the protagonist hit a Debacle. Typical John Grisham Work. Great Insight on Mass Tort Lawsuits. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 1/4/2014

    " Great book, liked how the personal story was just as important as the business story. A good lesson that if it's handed to you, you better be wary, and it probably won't last. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 11/10/2013

    " Good book, didn't like ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth Anne | 11/8/2013

    " Another Grisham that I could not put down, but left me feeling a little empty at the end. I dont know much about lawyering, but its probably guys like the main character in the book that give them a bad rap. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chea Phal | 10/26/2013

    " My fist book by John Grisham. It kept me turning the next page.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 9/10/2013

    " One of my favorite Grisham books "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie | 8/5/2013

    " I thought I'd be confused with all the law stuff but I wasn't. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mr. Z | 7/19/2013

    " I had a lot of fun reading this story. An example of "truth in comedy" with all of this mass tort litigation. How many times do you see these commercials fishing for "victims" of one ridiculous thing after another, and then you have these lawyers that feast off of real victim's misfortunes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jordan | 7/12/2013

    " Entertaining, easy read. The protagonist got off too easy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pamela Johnston | 6/25/2013

    " Too long and drawn out. Almost gave up on it! Totally not what I had expected! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Colette | 5/27/2013

    " The main character was frustrating to me, but I know that he was supposed to be that way. It still made me enjoy the book less. But it was an interesting book with a good moral, I think. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rasheed | 3/2/2013

    " Grisham is a roller-coasted storyteller, once you hop in, you are there for the entire ride. Pharmaceutical companies are at the center of this law and order drama. Quite interesting and intriguing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelsey | 2/13/2013

    " I read this one with my ears, but liked it. Well, let's just say it passed the time between Seattle and Sacramento on I-5. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carol Catinari | 1/10/2013

    " I'm listening to this on tape in the car. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 10/8/2012

    " LOL! After reading this book, I became hyper-aware of all the commercials for class action law suits! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Dickison | 5/22/2012

    " Not top-drawer Grisham. Basically it's about how sleazy lawyers can be, and anyone who has ever been in a contentious divorce already is aware of this. The beginning of the book is pretty good, but by midpoint it was all I could do to continue. The ending is abrupt and all too convenient. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 nancita | 3/13/2012

    " This book SUCKED. I hated every minute of it and the only reason I finished it was to see if it somehow would all of a sudden get better...It didn't. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb | 2/29/2012

    " I have read most of his books. This one was okay. I liked The Broker much better, maybe because it wasn't about lawyers. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashley | 2/4/2012

    " I love John Grisham but this was not my favorite John Grisham book. Too much greed involved and not enough punishment for that greed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 10/12/2011

    " The King of Torts by John Grisham (2003) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 9/1/2011

    " If this book is true to life, I learned a lot about how class action suits and the lawyers who bring them work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 8/14/2011

    " Grisham. Easy to be with, like a good friend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tommy | 6/19/2011

    " One of my favorite Grisham books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tony | 5/5/2011

    " I know a lot of people that didn't think this one one of Grisham's better lawyer books but it's actually one of my favorites from him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 5/4/2011

    " Always love a good John Grisham, and having not read one for a while, this one hit the spot perfectly. Can't believe it was written in 2003 and I've only just managed to read it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jody | 4/5/2011

    " Not one of his better books but it was still good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Florence | 4/3/2011

    " An attorney becomes in chasing tort cases where he seeks thousands who may have been harmed by a large, wealthy company. It shows how attorneys with tort cases hurt many who have been victimized by the large companies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeri | 3/30/2011

    " I was into this from the first chapter. I kept hoping that Clay would get his head on straight. I wasn't really into the girlfriend plot but the rest was gripping. Makes you wonder what you would do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendar88 | 3/27/2011

    " Started off a bit unrealistic, and continued to be so, but after a while you just get into it and forget reality. A fun adventure that gets quite tense. Easy to follow and a fun ride. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rod | 3/15/2011

    " If you really want to understand the need for tort reform this is an excellent way to star in a fast paced good read
    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robin | 3/11/2011

    " It's a Grisham. 'Nuff said. Gave it 2 stars because I was curious enough to read to the end. But really, what did I expect? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lyz | 3/1/2011

    " Meh. After reading The Runaway Jury I was excited to begin this book, but I am pretty disappointed. The main character, Clay Carter, is neither likeable nor unlikeable. He is kind of like the book itself...uninspired and unmotivated...

About the Author
Author John Grisham

John Grisham, whose name has become synonymous with the modern legal thriller, used to work sixty to seventy hours a week at a small Southaven, Mississippi, law practice, squeezing in time before going to the office and during courtroom recesses to work on his hobby—writing his first novel. When finally published, A Time to Kill met with little success, but when he sold the film rights to The Firm to Paramount Pictures, Grisham suddenly became a hot property among publishers. Spending forty-seven weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, The Firm became the bestselling novel of 1991. The successes of The Pelican Brief, which hit number one on the New York Times bestseller list, and The Client, which debuted at number one, confirmed Grisham’s reputation as the master of the legal thriller. His success even renewed interest in A Time to Kill, which was then republished. This time around, it was a bestseller. Since first publishing A Time to Kill in 1988, Grisham has written one novel a year, and all of them have become international bestsellers. There are currently over 275 million John Grisham books in print worldwide, which have been translated into forty languages. Nine of his novels have been turned into films, as was an original screenplay, The Gingerbread Man. He lives in Virginia and Mississippi.
