in the certainly led to some creative characters to fill the pages too and there was some uite unexpected moments What I found lacking though was those courtroom brawls and xcitement Still a solid read in the Minotaur Lust end though while it wasn t my favorite of his catalogFor reviews please visit I don t know if I can come up with the words to describe how much I disliked this book While described by other characters as a brilliant lawyer the lead character Samantha was a cowardly idiot Or at least all the dialog attributed to her made her seem like she should never have graduated from high school I think the premise of the story gave us the idea this would be similar to The Pelican Brief but in reality it was just a jumble of unrealistic characters andvil A Game of Unchance employees of large coal companies Do yourself a favor and re read The Pelican Brief and throw this drivel into a fire somewhere Then you won t be contributing to the profits of big coal and maybe Grisham can leave this whole part of the country behind This is one of Gresham s best I grew up in the area this book is about and saw what he is talking about first hand It is very accurate and though he does talk abou.
