Interesting and gripping

The Litigators is a legal thriller by John Grisham.
The book is about a 2 partner boutique law firm, Finley and Figg. Here, boutique you might think corresponds to selective, but it does not. The lawyers are ambulance chasers. They manage to stay afloat by doing quick divorces and Driving Under Influence(DUI) cases.
But one day change comes right on their door.
David Zinc, a young Harvard graduate burns down, leaves his fast track career, drinks a lot and finds himself at the doorstep of the boutique firm. After he sobers up, unemployed and desperate for a job, he joins the firm.
With their new associate on board, Finley and Figg takes up a case against the pharmaceutical giant, Varrick Labs, alleging that its most popular drug Krayoxx causes heart attacks. They think that this is the case that will make them rich once and for all. But it almost seems too good to be true.
The book is great. The author has portrayed the characters really well and in detail. He has injected a lot of humor in this novel which makes it an entertaining read.
The book is filled with courtroom strategies, theatrics and suspense. It is fast paced and a definite page-turner. It will keep you up all night and you would want to know what happens in the end as fast as possible.
Summing up, I think that people are not wrong when they say - John Grisham is the master of legal thrillers.
Problem in saving your vote. Try again.
