Grisham has sprinkled humour throughout this novel.

The Litigators is a quick and easy read with the pages turning fast and faster. At the end, the savior comes through again, and the two hapless idiots get to skate on in their stupid lives.

And the second event is the landing of oneDavid Zinc on their doorstep. The family splits their time between their Victorian home on a farm in Mississippi and a plantation near Charlottesville, VA.

And yet, he apparently lost the fire somewhere along the way, and “mailed in” some formulaic evanescent stories with stiff, largely unlikeable and forgettable characters, and unrealistic plots see The Brethren as Exhibit 1. They call his wife to pick him up.

Overt sexualization of the one female character. The Litigators is about a two- partner Chicago law firm attempting to thhe it rich in a class action lawsuit over a cholesterol reduction drug by a major pharmaceutical drug company. He switched from questioning the ethics of big name companies and their deceptive CEOs to questioning the ethics of average people living in near poverty who were too anxious to make a quick buck.


He quickly becomes embroiled in Wally Figg’s rapidly cooked-up scheme to get rich quick by joining a mass tort lawsuit against giant pharmaceutical company Varrick Labs over its cholesterol drug Krayoxx, which has apparently been causing heart attacks and strokes.

Wally attempts to make light of the situation by proclaiming it an example of Krayoxx’s side effects. Irish Independent describes Grisham’s new book as grsiham his usual route to the bestsellers list” and projects it grsham a candidate to be his next Hollywood film.

Yes, they were a bit quirky, but that’s what made them fun. Feeling an elevating sense of freedom and vowing never to go back, Zinc willingly relegates himself to working for the two disreputable street lawyers and ambulance chasers. One of Finley and Figg’s clients who took the drug has just died, and Wally is determined to round up as many other apparent Krayoxx victims as he can find and sue Varrick Labs, the giant drug maker that produced Krayoxx.

I have never read a John Grisham book before. However, I think I need to come to grips with the fact that Mr. Wally and Oscar’s tactics are cringe worthy, their actions walk a fine line between working for the law and breaking it, but you just can’t help rooting for them in this David and Thd fight.

These rats do what they can to survive, and if they have to chase ambulances to do so or grease outstretched palms, well so be it.


The Litigators

When did he do this? The ad does not inform my purchase. I was pleasantly surprised. They got their come-uppance in the Krayoxx trial. And Well, I had great plans to jot down some notes and quotes to share with you about John Grisham’s newest book – The Litigators.

Meanwhile, David manages to complete his lead poisoning product liability case, finding that the destructive toys were imported from China by a subsidiary of Sonesta Games, the third-largest toy producer in the U.

He also casts his lot with a big name litigation firm to gfisham and put some fear into the company. The Pelican Brief 5 stars.

Books by John Grisham. It was eye opening to see the legal maneuvering – much of the machinations involving the drug companies and lawyers gave me pause and made me wonder how much of it is fact.

However, in this case much of the humor survived editing.
