The Rainmaker

So I’m reading The Rainmaker by John Grisham and I think that I’ve read it before…maybe decades ago.  So many facts of the novel felt familiar, but I could not put it together enough to remember details for ultimately what happens in the story.  So on I read.  In this novel we meet a soon-to-be lawyer who’s life is turned upside down just before he graduates law school.  He finds himself with perhaps the case of a lifetime and must pursue justice (or at least a large settlement) while having fairly little as far as resources; both money and help.  In his suit, he is pitted against one of the best lawyers in the city and one who would never hire him.  He is forced to open his own office and go it mostly alone.
