Michael Brock is on the fast track to make some serious money as a lawyer in a huge firm when a hostage situation with a homeless man leaves him shaken. After he learns more about the homeless and the lawyers who help them, he leaves the firm. A homeless family he meets was illegally evicted from a building owned by a client of his old firm. The family ends up dead and Brock?s new firm sues his old one. One partner at the big firm knew the eviction was illegal and concealed it. The story is pretty cut and dried. The main crux of the story is not really the lawsuit, but Brock?s journey from money hungry workaholic to laid back advocate of the poor. Fairly convincing but Grisham?s strong suit is not character development, but plots, so this one is a bit lacking.
