Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Nuanced and humorous... an inside account of an extraordinary team of lawyers at work...a first-rate legal thriller...” —Barron’s

 "Dramatic and well-written, and not shy about taking sides, the book is a great read...offers a rare inside look at the functioning of a trial team..." —Howard M. Erichson, Professor of Law, Fordham Law School, Mass Tort Litigation Blog

 “One can read Snigdha Prakash’s disturbing book on two levels: either as in–depth reporting of a major corporate scandal, or as a legal thriller, the denouement of which is left hanging until the final pages. On any score, she offers a...superb read for the lawyer and the layman alike; stick this one in your beach bag.” —Washington Lawyer

 “Intense, entertaining, dramatic... captures the players of a big-time trial in all of their brilliance, cunning and humor...it’s a terrific book.”  —Mark LaFramboise, Book Buyer, Politics & Prose Bookstore, Washington DC

“A close up, personal account...much like a John Grisham novel...of a case that rocked the medico-legal world...Should be read by anyone who is involved in clinical research, who prescribes medications or who takes such medications.” —Catherine DeAngelis, Editor-in-Chief Emerita, Journal of the American Medical Association
