This starts with a group of lawyers being held hostage by a homeless man. One of the lawyers is singled out to be "Mister"s helper. He is also the one covered in goo, I think that's the best cleanest way to put it, when the man's head is blown off.
This lawyer is an up and comer at the firm. His marriage is on the rocks and he is burned out even though he's only in his early 30's. He's also only a few years away from making partner.
In the aftermath of the hostage situation, he eventually quits his job to become a street lawyer, a lawyer who helps the homeless and disadvataged make sure they keep thier rights.
It's another conspiracy/cover up type book. I loved it. Mom wasn't so very crazy about it but I thought it was amazing!!!
