Publisher Description

Money can buy you anything. Even a verdict.

In a crowded courtroom in Mississippi, a chemical company is declared guilty of dumping toxic waste into a small town's water supply, causing the worst "cancer cluster" in history.

Their only avenue is to appeal to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will either approve the verdict or reverse it.

The company's owner wants a seat on the Court. His political operatives recruit a young, unsuspecting candidate. They finance him, manipulate him, market him, and mould him into a potential Supreme Court justice.

Their Supreme Court justice.

And unless their scheme is exposed, the polluters will make a clean escape.

Ingenious

Was so taken by this story that I was convinced every detail happened for real. The way facts , brief episodes of events and political and ethical issues are waved into a winning recipes is remarkable. And the characters are not neglected. Described in a personal and effective style they are all part of the journey of this story. Clever as always.

Classic Grisham

Southern states, the court room, big corporations and a few small guys. Shame the bad guy won. But good read
