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 .

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