Tort law, a multimillion dollar lawsuit, cigarettes, jury tampering....it doesn't get any more suspenseful than this. Watch as Biloxi's biggest trial of the century plays out, and the ultimate knock em down, drag em out tort law trial occurs amidst scandal and deception in this masterful book from John Grisham

This is proof that every writer has at least one lousy novel in them.

The character development was virtually non-existent, which would explain why it was so hard to care about them.
The absence of the traditional hard-working hero, usually found in a Grisham nove, is replaced by an attitude of the end justifies the means.

This remains one of my favorite Grisham books. I think he really excelled in this one

If you plough through it, the ending is great.
