Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Rainmaker (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I'm afraid I can't recall the last time I read such an unrealistic book. A kid lawyer fresh out of law school takes on the super powerful legal conglomorate representing a massive insurance company... and wins, all by his widdle wonesome. The only way this could happen is if the opposing lawyers make every blunder possible... which they conveniently do. Along the way the law firm which tries to cheat our young hero mysteriously burns to the ground and a judge who is in cahoots with the insurance company's legal team suddenly dies the day before a vital ruling. I waited until the end of the book to find out who the kid's mysterious, immoral benefactor was... and there wasn't one. Nope. Just coincidence, the whole way.
Along the way there are pointless subplots with a woman who claims to have millions in an Atlanta bank, a love story with an abuse victim, and the ethical dilemma of the need to be an ambulance chaser to make ends meet. WIll our young hero prevail? Who cares?
