Publisher's Summary

Michael was in a hurry. He was scrambling up the ladder at Drake & Sweeney, a giant D.C. law firm with 800 lawyers. The money was good and getting better; a partnership was three years away. He was a rising star with no time to waste, no time to stop, no time to toss a few coins into the cups of panhandlers. No time for a conscience.

But a violent encounter with a homeless man stopped him cold. Michael survived; his assailant did not. Who was this man? Michael did some digging, and learned that he was a mentally ill veteran who'd been in and out of shelters for many years. Then Michael dug a little deeper, and found a dirty secret, and the secret involved Drake & Sweeney.

The fast track derailed; the ladder collapsed. Michael bolted the firm and took a top-secret file with him. He landed in the streets, an advocate for the homeless, a street lawyer.

What the Critics Say

"Fluent and fascinating. Few writers have so much to say, the skills to make reading what they say an irresistible pleasure -- and the clout to be able to say it to an audience of millions." (Independent)

    "Easy listening"

    Endearing story . Reader is descriptive and fails to capture the emotion in the characters. Enjoyed the story line and wanted to keep reading

    Story
    "Even the sublime Frank Muller couldn't save this."
    Would you try another book written by John Grisham or narrated by Frank Muller?

    Have most of Grisham's books. Sadly Frank Muller has passed away.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Grisham again?

    Yes, without a doubt. This one just isn't his best.


    Which character – as performed by Frank Muller – was your favourite?

    None of the characters really stood out, I'm afraid.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Borderline boredom.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were many


    Any additional comments?
