In the Shadow of the Law by Kermit Roosevelt

Book Description

A "Christian Science Monitor" Best Book of the YearWinner of the Philadelphia Athenaeum Literary Award"In the Shadow of the Law" is the story of Morgan Siler, a powerful Washington, D.C., law firm that has transformed itself from a traditional practice serving those most in need into a shrewd giant serving the interests of the wealthy. Through the intertwined stories of a pro bono murder case and a class action lawsuit brought against a large chemical company, we meet the fascinating, engaging, and conflicted characters that make up this world: Mark Clayton, the rookie; Walker Eliot, the prodigy; Katja Phillips, the idealist; and Harold Fineman, the brilliant and burned-out partner, leader of the chemical company's defense team. With a thorny and breathtakingly paced narrative, "In the Shadow of the Law" marks the arrival of a writer who "stakes a firm claim to the literary territory of Scott Turow" ("The Times-Picayune, " New Orleans).
