A heartbreaking story the book centers around Carl Tradore a mega rich magnate man loosing his court case .And the steps he takes to win the appeal .A dirty one and it was again very enjoyable read .
Grisham is one of my favourite authors. Elected judges make him angry. He doesn't use that anger to help create a great book. He uses it to make his readers share his anger by drawing them into the lives of people who suffer from the greed of big business only to be chewed up and spat in the gutter like every other person who has faced the same demons.
Cancer sufferer wins lottery is a much better story than cancer sufferer buys lottery ticket and doesn't win lottery; it's a none story.
David takes on Goliath in unwinnable appeal and wins is a much better story than David takes on Goliath in unwinnable appeal and loses.

This book is written against the corrupting influence of big business on the law. Important though this message is, the author seems to forget this is a novel. The story telling comes a poor second to the political message. He did something similar with Grey Mountain which was also quite a dull read.
The problem for me is a lack of tension with a dreary and depressing predictability to the plot.
