However, there are some complications which neither Wally nor the experienced Alisandros anticipates. The drug works as advertised, it has no ill effects and is unjustly maligned; Varrick has first-rate experts with impeccable records willing to so testify. With Karros' help, Varrick sets a trap for the mass tort lawyers.
This time Varrick will only pretend to negotiate — their true aim would be to have a jury completely vindicate Krayoxx and deny any kind of tort. To achieve that result, Varrick takes care to prevent the case from going to Florida, Alisandros' favorite battleground. It is much better for them to let jurisdiction be claimed by Chicago federal judge Harry Seawright, with whom Rogan Rothberg has some ties. With a large settlement seemingly looming, Oscar hastens to start divorce proceedings against his wife, Paula, with whom had long been at odds, so as to cash out before the big Krayoxx money comes in.
Meanwhile, David Zinc starts taking his own legal initiatives. He stumbles upon a lead poisoning brain damage case involving the child of Burmese immigrants.
Expending his own time and resources on this case,    Zinc gathers enough evidence that if only he can find the identity of the American company which imported the child's toxic toys from China he would have an "open and shut" tort case.
Oscar shoots him and adds an unnecessary debilitating shot that shatteres his leg. Meanwhile, the chagrined Alisandros learns that tests of Krayoxx yield benign results and there is in fact no substance to the tort proceedings regarding this drug. Also, it becomes clear that Varrick did not seriously intend to negotiate. Sensibly, Wally seeks to cut the firm's losses and motions to withdraw the tort claims. Varrick obtains the services of a lawyer who specializes in suing other lawyers for malpractice and who is very thorough and effective in his chosen field.
During opening statements , Oscar suffers a myocardial infarction. Wally attempts to make light of the situation by proclaiming it an example of Krayoxx's side effects.
He admits to Karros and the judge in chambers that he has never seen the inside of a courtroom. Karros, in a moment of humanity, offers a deal: David agrees to finish the trial but there is hardly any real case for him to present. Rueben Massey, Varrick's CEO, instructs Karros not to move for likely successful summary judgment , he is determined to have a jury clear Krayoxx of all charges and Varrick's public relations machine stands ready to trumpet this decision in all the media.
Eventually, however, Karros makes one of her rare mistakes, letting a senior Varrick executive testify on the company's record as a whole, rather than on Krayoxx only. This opens the door for David to pounce and start a thorough cross-examination on Varrick's very shady past record, making the Varrick witness sweat for several hours. Knowing that the jury included several Catholics and several Blacks, David concentrates on one particularly atrocious aspect of Varrick's past record: The jury is convinced and renders a very quick verdict totally rejecting the Krayoxx tort claim and giving Varrick their expected vindication.
Varrick has no special grudge against this small firm, though they intend to settle accounts with their old foe Alisandros and extract from him big sums on a frivolous lawsuit.
The Krayoxx affair has left them deep in debt instead of the expected big profit, their office building — the firm's sole asset — heavily mortgaged and the two partners ailing, in bad shape physically and mentally.
What is Kobo Super Points?
Meanwhile, David manages to complete his lead poisoning product liability case, finding that the destructive toys were imported from China by a subsidiary of Sonesta Games, the third-largest toy producer in the U. A jury seeing the poor child, completely disabled as a direct provable result of using the toy, would be certain to grant a high sum in compensations.
Knowing this, the Sonesta CEO and his senior executives hasten to meet with David, seeming to show genuine remorse, aside from being aware of the grave damage which the publicity around such a case could cause their corporation. In parting, a Sonesta executive discreetly slips Zinc an unmarked envelope with information on lead poisoning caused by the products of Sonesta's competitors.
However, his sense of loyalty prevents him from leaving an ailing firm and ailing fellows in the lurch. David returns to the office and tells Oscar and Wally of his settlement. In return, the three of them are to sign a month contract to enter an equal partnership and will no longer be an ambulance-chasing firm.
A bit embarrassed, Oscar and Wally agree to the new contract. However, the two of them can't really function under these new terms, and later that year the partnership falls apart. Finley begins spending less time in the office and eventually retires a happy man, having recently remarried and being much more satisfied with his new wife, while Figg packs up and moves to Alaska.
Zinc opens his own product liability practice, David E. Zinc, Attorney-at-Law and hires Rochelle as his new secretary. The Litigators is said to be "an amusing and appalling look into the machinations of a nationwide class-action suit," according to Tobin Harshaw of Bloomberg L. The book has been derided for its lack of suspense. Carol Memmott of USA Today says that Grisham's latest attempt to capture the spirit of the legal David and Goliath story is missing "the ratcheting-up of suspense" that he has employed successfully in recent adult and youth novels.
And best of all, no one is murdered for stumbling Too Close to the Truth. Some sources noted that the book has potential to become an adapted screenplay. Irish Independent describes Grisham's new book as "following his usual route to the bestsellers list" and projects it as a candidate to be his next Hollywood film. Although it is standard Grisham fare, Independent noted that it provides the usual thrills in Grisham's comfortable legal world and should be a gripping read for his usual fans.
Simakis praised the book for having more depth of character than Grisham's novels customarily do. According to The Huffington Post , this book is the ninth best-selling fiction book of the year in ,  while according to the USA Today this was the 16th best selling book overall in It immediately was listed as the Publishers Weekly 1 best-seller among fiction hardcover books according to Reuters.

I've read this book twice now, and each time has been thoroughly enjoyable. I know a lot of people don't subscribe to Grisham's formula of protagonist lawyer trying to survive the dark world of legal loopholes, but I find it fun.
It's light reading, so don't expect to gain any complex insight into any workings of the justice system. THAT SAID, there's just enough of a smattering of legal language and various terminology to expand one's vocabulary at the least, or open avenues for exploration into the system. I actually found that I could keep up with the language in a law journal a little better aged having read a few works by Grisham.
This book is a true-to-the-formula novel, and David Zinc is a likeable character with the twin doofuses of Finley and Figg as his foils.
