Synopsis: Looks behind-the-scenes at the dramatic and often cutthroat world of litigation lawyers, detailing the astronomical sums they seek to win in lawsuits and their stamina and ferocity in achieving their goals

From Publishers Weekly: The lawyers depicted here, according to journalist Jenkins, are members of a hidden legal industry of "entrepreneurs of adversity" who make fortunes from contingency fees. He re-creates celebrated cases of six advocates, among them Texas attorney Stephen Susman, who prevented 22 banks from foreclosing on $1.5 billion borrowed by the Hunt brothers to stave off bankruptcy incurred by their unsuccessful attempt to corner the world's silver market; Morton Galane, Las Vegas attorney, who won for performer Wayne Newton the biggest libel verdict in history against NBC, despite the media's First Amendment free-speech protection; New Jersey attorney Marc Edell's successful allegation that a tobacco industry's corporate conspiracy resulted in the death by cancer of a cigarette smoker. Pungent dialogue and crisp characterization of the personality and style of each lawyer animate these courtroom dramas, but, as the author makes clear, such legal virtuosity is available to few plantiffs.
