The Litigators

John Grisham's The Litigators is his newest and therefore was my book candy for my trip to Chattanooga a couple of weeks ago.  I zipped through this one.  Some shocker, right?

The two lawyers at the "boutique firm" (read: super small and so-so firm) Finley & Figg are adequate at best and have no desire to be anything but.  David Zinc is a lawyer at a huge, big-box firm who one day goes to work and realizes that he doesn't want to do it anymore.  He just leaves.  Through a very funny process he ends up drunk and with a self-invitation to join Finley & Figg.  When a huge mass tort case comes up for the firm regarding possibly faulty pharmaceuticals, the lawyers are pushed to the brink.  How far will this case take them, and what kind of trouble waits around the bend?

That was hard to do, for this book has such an intricate plot that kept my face to the screen of my Kindle for days.  I just love Grisham's characters; he puts so much into creating full character arcs that it's hard not to care about the men and women in his books when you read the last sentence.  I enjoyed this story, and I enjoyed the secondary stories just as much as the main narrative line. 

What can I say?  I am a sucker for a good John Grisham book.
