Together, this unlikely trio make up Finley & Figg: specialists in injury claims, quickie divorces and DUIs. None of them has ever faced a jury in federal court. But they are about to take on one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the States. David gave up his lucrative career at Chicago's leading law firm for this: the chance to help the little guy stand up to the big corporations.

One of John's better books in recent history. Takes you back to the kind of story development that made him successful in the beginning.

One of his best in awhile. Some of his recent books have been somewhat the same. I enjoyed this one and believe he is back on track.

Grisham in Turow territory
Grisham, from MS, places the action in Chicago for a fast paced jump into the world of big money class action involving a giant drug co. and a killer cholesterol drug. A local seedy "boutique" firm of 2 law partners, their dog AC (ambulance chaser) and a very large black ruler-of- the-roost legal secretary are joined by a fed up with big firms Harvard law grad. Their luck changes when one of the partners lucks into a mother lode of drug victims and their relatives.
Fast paced, funny and Grisham at his best resulting in a book you cannot (will not) put down.

I consider this one of Grisham's better books. The plot is fairly straight forward without too many deviations and well tied together at the end. The characters are well drawn and realistic. The story line moves at a good pace with lots of well written action.
Publishers Weekly, 2012-01-30 When burnt-out lawyer David Zinc quits his job at a major corporate firm, a stress-induced nervous breakdown, heavy drinking, and the prospect of unemployment lead him to the doors of the seedy law firm of Finley & Figg and into the middle of a huge class action lawsuit against a pharmaceutical company that may be more than the partners at Finley & Figg can handle. Dennis Boutsikaris's narration is competent; he keeps the plot chugging along at an appropriate pace and shines in his portrayal of Zinc. He also effectively captures the over-the-top, ambulance-chasing banter of Zinc's new colleagues at the shady Finley & Figg. Yet when characters outside of Zinc's immediate orbit appear-particularly females and characters from varying ethnic backgrounds-the voices Boutsikaris creates begin to sound similar, amounting to some noticeable lost opportunities in a still enjoyable and highly entertaining audio.
