Publisher's Summary

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 D.C. 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…

    Story
    "A long but believable story, enough to hold ones interested along the way."

    The reader was good, soothing in fact, considering the story wasn't that dynamic.
    What is interesting is these pharmaceutical company cases are very similar to real life settlements that actually have occurred and been reported in reputable newspapers. Meaning this story probably is linked to actual cases with only name, illness and symptom differences.
    I do like it when a story doesn't have to make things unbelievable to fit the plot.

    "Predicable."

    the narrator Michael Beck is brilliant but the story was mediocre in comparison to the writers usual captivating and gasp out loud, works of art.

    "Disappointing"

    An interesting explanation of how class actions can go wrong, but a bit tedious and the characters were flat. Have read far better Grishams.
