Review of 'The King of Torts'

The King of Torts by John Grishom

Clay Carter is a young Public Defender in Washington who is given an offer he simply cannot refuse: To open his own office and go after the maker of a harmful drug – in the process making large amounts of fees. The lure of money is too much for Clay as he throws his morals out the window and goes for it becoming, in the process, the King of Torts, much despised by so-called respectable lawyers yet envied at the same time. It is only a matter of time before he is called to account…Another compulsive page turner from the master of the legal thriller, Grishom has managed to make this potentially despicable character a real person with real problems. A fascinating (and terrifying) look behind the scenes of modern American litigation.
