Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

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"

Review by Library Journal (2012-02-15)

Davis Zinc is a Harvard graduate and lawyer with a prestigious Chicago firm who "cracks up" after years of long hours, horrible bosses, and mind-numbing work. He unexpectedly finds himself employed by the ragtag firm of Finley & Figg and part of a major tort litigation with a large pharmaceutical company. The line between good and evil is more gray than in many of Grisham's previous novels. However, listeners will find themselves liking greedy, ambulance-chasing F&F-despite its lack of ethics-and hoping they can pull off the win against Varrick Labs.

Verdict: Grisham makes the law seem interesting and accessible, yet it is the relationship among the characters, not the legal drama, that is this story's true heart. Audie Award winner Dennis Boutsikaris does an excellent job of portraying the offbeat characters.

Review by Library Journal (2011-10-01)

Narrated by Scott Brick, Grisham's latest legal thriller will be released simultaneously with the Doubleday print (Random House Audio will handle the retail edition), which has a 1.5 million-copy first printing, so this is expected to be another monster. Plan accordingly.
