about

It's summer in Memphis.  The sweat is sticking to Rudy Baylor's shirt and creditors are nipping at his heels.  Once he had aspirations of breezing through law school and punching his ticket to the good life.  Now he doesn't have a job or a prayer...except for one: an insurance dispute that leaves a family devastated and opens the door for a lawsuit, if Rudy can find a way to file it.

By the time Rudy gets to court, a heavyweight corporate defense team is there to meet him. And suddenly he's in over his head, plunged into a nightmare of lies and legal maneuverings.  A case that started small is exploding into a thunderous million-dollar war of nerves, skill and outright violence--a fight that could cost one young lawyer his life, or turn him into the biggest rainmaker in the land....

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's The Litigators.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Order In The Court Hot summer days in Memphis, working on Mrs. Birdie's yard, is how Rudy Baylor pays rent. In this book, The Rainmaker by John Grisham, Rudy is a law student who just graduated and looking for a job. After Rudy has been looking for what seem like forever, someone offers him a job, but Rudy is not sure if it is the best one to take. This book is a great book because it really makes you think. It will keep you on the edge the whole way through. Kate O.
