    In a crowded courtroom in Mississippi, a jury returns a shocking verdict against a chemical company accused of dumping toxic waste into a small town's water supply, causing the worst 'cancer cluster' in history. The company appeals to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will one day either approve the verdict or reverse it. Who are the nine? How will they vote?

This was a very interesting book. Explains how the appeals process works and how local courts work.

OK book

by melaniersk on Dec 25, 2008

Having read all of Mr. Grisham's books and loving MOST of them, this goes into the "OK" stack. For me, it didn't have the don't-want-to-put-it-down element. I did finish it but not in record time. He can do better and surely has.

INTRIGUING

by MommyDearest on Mar 12, 2008

A husband and wife lawyer team risk everything they have to go up against a powerful corporation that has been illegally dumping toxic waste that infiltrated their town?s water supply causing cancer to hundreds of town?s people. Even though this is a novel, John Grisham gives his readers enormous amounts of real life laws and procedures of court room drama and how ?big business? can manipulate the outcome. You will receive great insight as to how our justice system works and a new awareness of our voting rights, with a very thought provoking ending.
