_______________________________________Michael Brock is a man in the fast lane. He's a rising star at Drake & Sweeney, a giant Washington law firm.

No time to waste, no time to toss a few coins to beggars.

No time for a conscience. Until the day a man takes several lawyers hostage at his firm, shouting about an eviction.

Police snipers shoot the hostage taker dead, but Brock feels compelled to investigate. What he discovers is a shocking violation of the rights of the homeless on the city streets, with Drake & Sweeney up to its neck in it, and suddenly his conscience begins to stir.

But to do the right thing, he might have to steal his own firm's secrets... _______________________________________'A master at the art of deft characterisation and the skilful delivery of hair-raising crescendos' - Irish Independent'John Grisham is the master of legal fiction' - Jodi Picoult'The best thriller writer alive' - Ken Follett'John Grisham has perfected the art of cooking up convincing, fast-paced thrillers' - Telegraph 'Grisham is a superb, instinctive storyteller' - The Times'Grisham's storytelling genius reminds us that when it comes to legal drama, the master is in a league of his own.' - Daily Record'Masterful - when Grisham gets in the courtroom he lets rip, drawing scenes so real they're not just alive, they're pulsating' - Mirror'A giant of the thriller genre' - TimeOut
