The Litigators by John Grisham

22 Apr

Finished reading my nth John Grisham book in record time.  This is one of his best books.

Congrats to David Zinc (the protagonist) … he had the guts to run away from a sweat shop and branch out on his own AND the tenacity to succeed.  Anybody who holds a job will love this guy.

The story is about two loser lawyers who chance upon a cholesterol lowering drug which supposedly causes severe unexpected side-effects.  The lawyers dream about suing the bad-drug company with a long rap sheet of bad drugs and settlement in order to have a multimillion dollar settlement (read retirement).  David Zinc, our hero, walks out of his sweat-shop / high-profile law firm and walks into these two losers.

Do the loser lawyers manage to screw the drug company or do they get screwed themselves?  How does the lovable David succeed?  Read the book – it is worth the ride 🙂

    John Grisham used to be one of my favorite authors but I haven’t read this book (or any of his works in the last few years) and I think I should! 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by :-).

      I recently read “The Appeal” as well – which was also good – but not great. I have loved a lot of his novels Pelican Brief, Summons, etc. But some like “Bleachers” was unreadable esp to the non-american.

    Just finished The Litigators last night. Agree with your assessment. I had been away from his books for a while, but this one gets me back. Want to see the movie if it would be done as well as the other legal thrillers by Grisham.
