The King Of Torts by John Grisham - Paperback Paperback – 1 January 2003
The King Of Torts is a John Grisham novel that features a young and ambitious lawyer who starts out with good intentions before he is tempted by fame and wealth. Clay Carter works as a litigator in the Office of the Public Defender. It is a job with no prospects for growth and he is growing tired of it, hungry to explore new pastures. Clay is assigned to defend a man named Tequila Wilson in what he believes to be a routine drug-related murder case that is all too common on the streets of Washington DC. However, as he digs deeper, he discovers a huge case of malpractice by a drug company. This large pharmaceutical company had been using people for a drug experiment without their knowledge. While the drug proved effective in most cases, in a few people like Tequila Wilson, it incited violence. A man named Max Pace approaches Clay with an offer from the drug company to settle the matter out of court.

What happened to the writer that gave us A Time To Kill, The Client and those great early books? Did Grisham run out of steam? Or is publishing a book a year proving to be too much for him? I won't be rushing out to buy his next book in hardcover, but I will be keeping my eyes open for what he produces. The first half of this book is proof that Grisham still has it. He just needs to make it span across the full 400 pages.
