The office of the public defender is not known as a training ground for bright young litigators. Clay Carter has been there too long and, like most of his colleagues, dreams of a better job in a real firm. When he reluctantly takes the case of a young man charged with a random street killing, he assumes it is just another of the many senseless murders that hit DC every week.

As he digs into the background of his client, Clay stumbles on a conspiracy too horrible to believe. He suddenly finds himself in the middle of a complex case against one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, looking at the kind of enormous settlement that would totally change his life—that would make him, almost overnight, the legal profession’s newest king of torts …

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ryan | 2/13/2014

    " Another great story from John Grisham. I haven't found a book of his that I don't like. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jamie | 1/30/2014

    " I enjoyed the look into what goes on in these big class action suits and who really wins (the lawyers of course) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Whitney Jackson | 1/25/2014

    " I am a huge John Grisham fan, however this book was slightly disappointing. It was still an enjoyable read, but after Grisham set the bar so high with past books, this one falls very short of my expectations. The beginning of the book is very detailed and drawn out, the middle is pretty exciting, but it drops off at the end, as if he was in a hurry to finish the book. If this is the first of John's books that you are looking to read, I would recommend one such as "The Rainmaker" or "The Runaway Jury". "

    " This was a typical Grisham book but entertaining none the less. Very quick read. "
