Wendell Rohr is a lawyer taking on the gun lobby for Celeste Wood. Rankin Fitch is for the defendants. Between them, they have to fight ot see if their is any advantage they can take from the jurors selected. But there is someone on the inside. Nicholas Easter is a juror with a girlfriend, Marlee, on the outside. they have a past together and their own plans for court.
When a day trader is shot where he works, his widow sues a major gun manufacturer and blaming them for his death, since they sold the gun to the person who killed her husband. She hires a lawyer, Wendell Rohr, to oversee the case. A good man that he is, Wendell takes charge. The defense hires their own lawyer, Rankin Fitch, a powerful and ruthless jury consultant riding on his high horse of wins. But in the middle of it all is the jury, which both Wendell and Rankin are determined to take their vote. But what they're about to discover, is that one man and one woman stand in their way. Nicholas Easter is one of the jurors and he's the one working with Marlee, his girlfriend, which holds the outcome of the jurors minds. But as the case goes, questions come about as to what the lawyers will do to win their case and what some will do to secure the final outcome. No one can expect what the jurors will decide with all of this drama arising of both sides trying to win.
I am obsessed with lawyer books and John Grisham. This book was so exciting, I checked it out today and i'm already done with it. It never got boring and I wanted to just keep reading more and more. The excitement of people cheating the law in one simple court case brought about all the drama that I couldn't stop reading. If they didn't cheat the law so much in this book, it would be boring. But overall, this is definitely one of my favorite books.
