Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tom Hughes is in no condition to take on a new case. Since his wife died from a tragic asthma attack, his life has been a blur of bourbon-soaked depression. When he closed the doors on his personal injury practice, small-town rumors about his drinking swirled through the local courthouse. But when Ike Stiles is cast as the underdog in a David versus Goliath legal battle, Tom is forced back into the courtroom to defend his old friend.

The organic Stiles Family Berry Farm has been genetically contaminated by a mysterious new product from the Enhanced Foods Division of GenAgra. The corporate giant is perfecting its genetically modified Skinny Berry--set to become the next great American weight-loss fad. GenAgra stands to reap millions in profits. Only Tom and Ike stand in the way. When his rag-tag legal team links the Skinny Berry to an emerging public health crisis, Tom's case suddenly controls much more than the fate of one family farm.

But before Tom can save Ike's farm and expose the truth about the Skinny Berry, he will have to overcome all the power that corporate profits can buy. Through their marketing guru, Al Bullard, GenAgra's influence forces Tom to endure a gauntlet of government resistance, academic opposition, a hostile media, and an adverse legal system. GenAgra has never been beaten in the courtroom. Can Tom's unlikely case prevail against the corporation's win-at-all-cost tactics? Will he stop the spread of a man-made medical disaster?
