The Litigators

Fed up with the corporate rat race/treadmill, Harvard Law graduate David Zinc quits his lucrative job with a top law firm and joins the two-man ambulance chasing team of Finley and Figg in John Grisham’s  legal thriller – The Litigators.

With the fervor of Erin Brockovich pursuing a cause and some big money, Grisham focuses on a class action suit to bring down a pharmaceutical firm for its death-causing cholesterol drug.  Not even lawyers can control everything, and clever plot twists sustain the momentum.

The action is fast and fun, with a little dark humor mixed in, and the characters have a film noir flavor.  Grisham stays true to his successful formula – a fast read – nice diversion while I was sitting in a waiting room for hours.
