Description

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 .

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 24, 2011 – Grisham's entertaining modern-day legal thriller offers a bitingly farcical look at lawyers at the bottom of the food chain. David Zinc, an associate at a Chicago mega-firm who's sick of the sweatshop he's been laboring in for five years, flees the office one morning and ends up spending all day in a bar. Soon after the bartender finally kicks him out, Zinc spots an ad on a city bus for a firm of ambulance-chasers, Finley & Figg, and resolves to join their hapless practice. Meanwhile, Wally Figg, one of Finley & Figg's two partners, thinks he's found a goldmine after learning that a client who died recently was taking an anti-cholesterol drug called Krayoxx. Zinc, who has zero litigation experience, aids Finley & Figg, who likewise lack litigation experience, in filing suit against the huge pharmaceutical company that produces Krayoxx. Grisham (The Confession) makes Zinc's personal transformation more convincing than his professional one. Some readers may feel the fairy tale ending clashes with the dark humor of the opening.

Customer Reviews

Simply put...Excellent!

How John Grisham continues to produce such thoroughly enjoyable reads is amazing. I laughed out loud at the characters and situations he evokes and was totally thrilled to be along for the ride. These insights into the legal world ring farcical and true simultaneously. It is a delight to feel the descriptions of his world are so "real" as to feel you as the reader can anticipate the reactions of the players as he lays out the settings for their interactions. This has got to be one of his best, and I've read almost all of them since "A Time To Kill." Grisham does not dissapoint with this latest, and I am already looking forward to his next!

The Litigators

Not the quality I expect from Grisham. Cute story but completely predictable. No suspense. Disappointing. Wait for the paperback or borrow from library.

Great read!

Best Grisham in years!
