Clay Carter, a public defender, reluctantly takes the case of a young man charged with a random street killing, assuming it is just another of the many senseless murders that hit D.C. every week. As he digs into the background of his client, Clay stumbles on a conspiracy too horrible to believe. He suddenly finds himself in the middle of a complex case against one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, looking at the kind of enormous settlement that would totally change his life--that would make him almost overnight, the legal profession's newest king of torts.

Enjoyed the joy ride that the main character went on before his fall. Good read by Grisham.

I don't think this is one of Grisham's best but it's still pretty good. A view of greed from a lawyer's perspective
