Praise for John Grisham:

'The best thriller writer alive'

(Ken Follett, Evening Standard)

His stories are ferociously plot driven: they will keep you awake all night (Independent on Sunday)

Grisham is a superb, instinctive storyteller (The Times)

Few writers have so much to say, the skills to make reading what they say an irresistible pleasure - and the clout to say it to an audience of millions (Independent)

Enthralling characters and mesmeric plot (Time Out)

As exciting as a car chase with a load of dynamite thrown in (Daily Mail)

Grisham reigns supreme (Sunday Express)

No one does it better than Grisham (Daily Telegraph)

Grisham knows what he's doing. The book is crisply written (with some agreeably sly one-liners) and the narrative canters along. (Andrew Taylor, The Spectator)

...entirely gripping... (The Evening Standard)

Grisham in reliable form. (The Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin)

'The Litigators is Grisham at his very best, fast-paced, funny and packed with living and breathing characters that you'd love to share an after-court beer with. Set aside a weekend for this one, because you won't want to put it down'. (Irish Examiner)

This is the master of the legal thriller at his best. You won't want to put it down! (Press Association)

After a slow build setting the scene, the case turns pear-shaped; and by the time we get to court, there's a compelling argument for readers to demolish this classic page-turner in one epic sitting. (Townsville Bulletin)

The Litigators reminds fans of this genre just what a creative genius Grisham is. A very entertaining read.' (Launceston Examiner)

Grisham is back on top form with this courtroom thriller.... Unusually for Grisham he is injecting quite a lot of humour into this book which I found worked really well... 'The Litigators' is a courtroom battle that will keep you turning the pages until the end, wanting to see the big guns fail, but you will have to wait until the last few pages until you find out who wins. A welcome return to form for Grisham. (Crimesquad.com)

Grisham hasn't lost his deft touch. What a rollicking ride it turns out to be. (Sunday Telegraph and Sunday Herald Sun)

A tremendously entertaining romp, filled with the kind of courtroom strategies, theatrics and suspense that have made John Grisham America's favourite storyteller. (Gympie Times)

Product Description

The Partners at Finley & Figg - all two of them - often refer to themselves as 'a boutique law firm.' 'Boutique,' as in chic, selective and prosperous. They are, of course, none of these things. What they are is a two-bit operation always in search of their big break, ambulance chasers who've been in the trenches much too long making much too little. Their specialties, so to speak, are quickie divorces and DUIs, with the occasional jackpot of an actual car wreck thrown in. After twenty plus years together Oscar Finley and Wally Figg bicker like an old married couple, but somehow continue to scratch out a half-decent living from their seedy offices in southwest Chicago. And then change comes their way. More accurately, it stumbles in. David Zinc, a young but already burned-out attorney, walks out of his fast-track career at a fancy downtown firm, goes on a serious bender and finds himself literally at the doorstep of our 'boutique firm'. Once David sobers up and comes to grips with the fact that he's suddenly unemployed, any job - even one with Finley & Figg - looks OK to him. With their new junior partner on board, F&F are ready to tackle a really big case, a case that could make them rich without requiring them to actually practice much law. An extremely popular drug, Krayoxx , the no. 1 cholesterol reducer for the dangerously overweight, produced by Varrick Labs, a giant pharmaceutical company with annual sales of $25 billion, has recently come under fire as several patients taking it have suffered heart attacks. Wally smells money. A little online research confirms Wally's suspicions - a huge plaintiff's firm in Florida is putting together a class action suit against Varrick. All Finley & Figg have to do is find a handful of people who had a heart attack while taking Krayoxx, convince them to become clients, join the class action, and ride along to fame and fortune. With any luck, they won't even have to enter a courtroom! It almost seems too good to be true. And it is.
