"L.A. LAW MEETS THE GODFATHER...
THE NEXT BOOK YOU'LL SEE EVERYBODY REAIDING - THE WAY WE ALL CARTED AROUND PRESUMED INNOCENT." - USA Today

AT THE TOP OF HIS CLASS AT HARVARD LAW, HE HAD HIS CHOICE OF THE BEST IN AMERICA.  HE MADE A DEADLY MISTAKE.

When Mitch McDeer signed on with Bendini, Lambert & Locke of Memphis, he thought he and his beuatiful wife, Abby, were on their way.  The firm leased him a BMW, paid off his school loans, arranged a mortgage, and hired him a decorator.  Mitch McDeere should have remembered what his brother Ray - doing fifteen years in a Tennessee jail - already knew.  You never get nothing for nothing.  Now the FBI has the lowdown on Mitch's form and needs his help.  Mitch is caught between a rock and a hard place, with no choice - if he wants to live.

HE'S A YOUNG LAWYER WHO DOES YARD WORK IN EXCHANGE FOR RENT.  THEN ONE LITTLE CASE BEGINS TO EXPLODE....

It's summer in Memphis.  The sweat is sticking to Rudy Baylor's shirt and creditors are nipping at his heels.  Once he had aspirations of breezing through law school and punching his ticket to the good life.  Now he doesn't have a job or a prayer... except for one: an insurance dispute that leaves a family devastated and opens the door for a lawsuit, if Rudy can find a way to file it.

"THE PACE IS FAST, THE CHARACTERS QUIRKY, THE RESULT ENTERTAINING... WILL BE JOHN GRISHAM'S MOST POPULAR NOVEL SINCE THE FIRM"
- USA Today

"GREAT FUN TO READ... THE COMPLEX PLOTTING IS GRISHAM'S MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENT."
- Los Angeles Times

By the time Rudy gets to court, a heavyweight corporate defense team is there to meet him.  And suddenly he's in over his head, plunged into a nightmare of lies and maneuverings.  A case that started small is exploding into a thunderous million-dollar war of nerves, skill, and outright violence - a fight that could cost one young lawyer his life, or turn him into the biggest rainmaker in the land....
