I am a big John Grisham fan, and I really enjoyed this book. It's my favorite so far of the ones that I've read. It keeps you guessing the whole time, and and it is more humorous than I expected. The characters are complex and interesting, and the legal matter in the story is real and riveting. It deals with the tobacco industry and its lack of compassion for the people that buy their product and suffer many medical problems. It will have you convinced that smoking results in a one-way ticket to an early funeral. If you enjoy John Grisham novels and/or would be interested in reading about the ferocious battle over the harms of cigarette smoking and the ruthless attempts of the industry to win, then you won't be disappointed. If you're not sure that the book is for you, then try watching the movie. It is excellent as well.
