Publisher's Summary

Winner of the British Book Awards, Lifetime Achievement Award, 2007.

The Office of the Public Defender is not known as a training ground for bright young litigators. Clay Carter has been there too long, and, like most of his colleagues, dreams of a better job in a real firm. When he reluctantly takes the case of a young man charged with a random street killing, he assumes it is just another of the many senseless murders that hit D.C. every week.

As he digs into the background of his client, Clay stumbles upon a conspiracy too horrible to believe. He suddenly finds himself in the middle of a complex case against one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, looking at the kind of enormous settlement that would totally change his life, that would make him, almost overnight, the legal profession's newest king of torts.

    "Choose the Unabridged Version!"

    I listened to this on the back of two meaty unabridged books but just found it too quick. So much detail is crammed into the five hours devaluing a lot of it unfortunately. Yes, I know, that's what abridging is all about but it's not for me i'm afraid.

    The story itself is gripping so no disrespect to the author - i'm sure the lad will go far! ;-) Definitely worth a listen but go for the longer version!
