Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE CONFESSION

"Brilliant . . . Superb . . . the kind of grab-a-reader-by-the-shoulders suspense story that demands to be inhaled as quickly as possible." --Washington Post

"One of Grisham's best efforts in many seasons . . . a rous-ing return to his dexterous good-guy-faces-corrupt-system storytelling." --People magazine

"Packed with tension, legal roadblocks, and shocking rev-elations." --USA Today

When burnt-out lawyer David Zinc quits his job at a major corporate firm, a stress-induced nervous breakdown, heavy drinking, and the prospect of unemployment lead him to the doors of the seedy law firm of Finley & Figg and into the middle of a huge class action lawsuit against a pharmaceutical company that may be more than the partners at Finley & Figg can handle. Dennis Boutsikaris's narration is competent; he keeps the plot chugging along at an appropriate pace and shines in his portrayal of Zinc. He also effectively captures the over-the-top, ambulance-chasing banter of Zinc's new colleagues at the shady Finley & Figg. Yet when characters outside of Zinc's immediate orbit appear-particularly females and characters from varying ethnic backgrounds-the voices Boutsikaris creates begin to sound similar, amounting to some noticeable lost opportunities in a still enjoyable and highly entertaining audio. A Doubleday hardcover. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Davis Zinc is a Harvard graduate and lawyer with a prestigious Chicago firm who "cracks up" after years of long hours, horrible bosses, and mind-numbing work. He unexpectedly finds himself employed by the ragtag firm of Finley & Figg and part of a major tort litigation with a large pharmaceutical company. The line between good and evil is more gray than in many of Grisham's previous novels. However, listeners will find themselves liking greedy, ambulance-chasing F&F-despite its lack of ethics-and hoping they can pull off the win against Varrick Labs. VERDICT Grisham makes the law seem interesting and accessible, yet it is the relationship among the characters, not the legal drama, that is this story's true heart. Audie Award winner Dennis Boutsikaris does an excellent job of portraying the offbeat characters.
