The partners at Finley & Figg often refer to themselves as a “boutique law firm.” Boutique, as in chic, selective, and prosperous. Oscar Finley and Wally Figg are none of these things. They are a two-bit operation of ambulance chasers who bicker like an old married couple. Until change comes their way—or, more accurately, stumbles in. After leaving a fast-track career and going on a serious bender, David Zinc is sober, unemployed, and desperate enough to take a job at Finley & Figg.
Now the firm is ready to tackle a case that could make the partners rich—without requiring them to actually practice much law. A class action suit has been brought against Varrick Labs, a pharmaceutical giant with annual sales of $25 billion, alleging that Krayoxx, its most popular drug, causes heart attacks. Wally smells money. All Finley & Figg has to do is find a handful of Krayoxx users to join the suit. It almost seems too good to be true . . . and it is.

Includes an excerpt of John Grisham’s Calico Joe and a special preview of his upcoming novel The Racketeer .

    It was one of those books that I cannot put down. Every scene is like watching it in front of me. I loved it. Highly recommend.

    John Grisham returns once again to tort law which is perhaps one times too many with this reading. Normally, John Grisham will hook you at one point that you don't want to put the book down. This did not happen. Though it was an enjoyable read, it was the worth reading twice.

  • Good but not great

    By Teddy gameboy
    Rather trite and predictable. It is a fast read and does keep you going.
  • Awesome

  • Another Good Read from John

    I really enjoyed this one. I've read almost all of the Grisham legal thrillers and this one is as good as the rest. Seems like what might happen in a real law practice.
  • Great book

    It was hard to put down. I really thought that Finley & Fig would hedge their bets and buy up a bunch of Varricks stock knowing they were going to loose the suit, but. David stumbled on a gold mine anyway.

    Well, I love Grisham! This is another unpredictable, compelling drama that kept me turning pages. Great story line, well-developed characters. It's a Grisham--needn't say more.
