They are at the center of a multimillion-dollar legal hurricane: twelve men and women who have been investigated, watched, manipulated, and harassed by high-priced lawyers and consultants who will stop at nothing to secure a verdict. Now the jury must make a decision in the most explosive civil trial of the century, a precedent-setting lawsuit against a giant tobacco company. But only a handful of people know the truth: that this jury has a leader, and the verdict belongs to him.

He is known only as Juror #2. But he has a name, a past, and he has planned his every move with the help of a beautiful woman on the outside. Now, while a corporate empire hangs in the balance, while a grieving family waits, and while lawyers are plunged into a battle for their careers, the truth about Juror #2 is about to explode in a cross fire of greed and corruption--and with justice fighting for its life.

Tort law, a multimillion dollar lawsuit, cigarettes, jury doesn't get any more suspenseful than this. Watch as Biloxi's biggest trial of the century plays out, and the ultimate knock em down, drag em out tort law trial occurs amidst scandal and deception in this masterful book from John Grisham

This is proof that every writer has at least one lousy novel in them.

The character development was virtually non-existent, which would explain why it was so hard to care about them.
The absence of the traditional hard-working hero, usually found in a Grisham nove, is replaced by an attitude of the end justifies the means.

This remains one of my favorite Grisham books. I think he really excelled in this one

If you plough through it, the ending is great.
