Shelves: light-fiction Poor showing for JG.. I disliked it and I believe that JG did not write this.. There is a touch of the real JG in the main courtroom scene, but it is thin and too short. I had the Audible version - not the text. Here is my "Audible. The story was weak and no anticipation was built into it. That would have been a much better story.
This mess was like a big soup pot wherein alcoholism, sexism, ageism, fat-ism, and stupid-ism were all put together to create a reason to have a trial. The trial, as expected, was an exercise in futility, but it served the purpose of trotting out beautiful, intelligent women for big corporate read: bad guys to ogle and demean. The saving grace, in the last 40 minutes of 11 hours was another fiasco. While it is all very sweet to hope for the kind of CEO we learn of at the end, it is unlikely and the results were too swift and also unlikely -- the corporation "caved" under so little pressure.
As for the reader: He sounded like Christopher Walken. Those that were accurately named not renamed as fictional were obviously gleaned from some reference book and had not the ring of any authenticity.
Strange and inexplicable: There is a dog in the office who gets fed, but never taken OUT? There was no scene that I can recall that mentioned AC Ambulance Chaser getting out to do his business. Where did it come from? When did he do this? While he was walking his infant on the hourly shifts he shared with his wife? Come on! The tying up of loose ends was fast and stupid. Finley and Figg were losers to massive degrees, but their savior, David comes in with a safety for all. When he walked in, he had money saved from his old job and he spread it around freely.
We knew he was spontaneous and crazy when we met him, but this behavior is not sensible from within the context of the book.
At the end, the savior comes through again, and the two hapless idiots get to skate on in their stupid lives. David is so "good" that his one dubious move, which could have caused him some bad press and bad luck, also evaporated. Overall, I am shocked by the poor quality of the story, the writing and the reader. If JG really wrote this, I must extrapolate the following: 1.
He is subliminally poking fun at: poor people, fat people, drunks and "hot" women. He may overtly poke big corporate greediness and unscrupulous manufacturers, but his real targets seem to be the poor and uneducated. It took David corrosion-resistant Zinc to swoop down on the law firm, the poor immigrants, and the big bad capitalists, and David was not even well versed on the law and its machinations.
I do not have the text to refer to but at one point toward the end the author refers to a drive for one of the lawyers as a small Asian woman of dubious ethnicity. While the word "dubious" is appropriately used, it has a negative connotation, as if the uncertainty of her ethnicity is dubious -- not that the specific ethnicity was dubious. They got their come-uppance in the Krayoxx trial. But the Burmese clients, with their gentle and self-effacing ways, well, they do better.
They had the benevolent CEO. It was a silly book. It had elements of Carl Hiaasen and elements of top-rate Grisham. It had some Jonathan Kellerman but not enough and it had some Dismas Hardy. So, why take so much time writing this?
I expected more and got less. I am complaining. I am complaining about what I perceive is a laziness a carelessness by well-loved authors. Maybe they are contracted to put out work on a timetable. This one felt like an obligation rather than an enjoyable undertaking by one of my favorite authors. I regret that I have to wait for the next one to come out. I will wait for the reviews to hit before I invest money or anticipation in acquiring it.
Thank you for reading.
