Synopsis

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 got off to a really slow start and picked up about halfway through. A bit unrealistic and far-fetched on the story line.

Grisham is a good steady read, you pretty much can be guaranteed a good story. The circumstances which led Zinc to the new law firm are slightly implausible, but ok. Just ok.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
August 25th, 2013
I've read this book twice now, and each time has been thoroughly enjoyable. I know a lot of people don't subscribe to Grisham's formula of protagonist lawyer trying to survive the dark world of legal loopholes, but I find it fun. It's light reading, so don't expect to gain any complex insight into any workings of the justice system. THAT SAID, there's just enough of a smattering of legal language and various terminology to expand one's vocabulary at the least, or open avenues for exploration into the system. I actually found that I could keep up with the language in a law journal a little better aged having read a few works by Grisham. This book is a true-to-the-formula novel, and David Zinc is a likeable character with the twin doofuses of Finley and Figg as his foils. Don't expect deep character development, but watch out for lightly told but easily imagined heart-wrenching human stories. Enjoy this novel for what it's worth.
