When attorney Marcus Glenwood resigns from his prestigious corporate law firm to retreat to the small town of Rocky Mount, North Carolina, and rebuild his life after a devastating personal tragedy, he has no idea that the biggest, most emotionally trying case of his entire career is about to fall into his backyard. It is a fragile and spiritually wounded Glenwood who first meets his distraught clients, Alma and Austin Hall.
Their daughter, Gloria, has disappeared in China while investigating the slavelike labor practices of a factory owned by the international giant New Horizons, the world's largest manufacturer of sports shoes and athletic gear. Moved and persuaded by Alma's pleading, Marcus agrees to take their case. But he cannot know how quickly his investigation will begin to untangle a web of greed and deceit stretching from Washington D.C., across international borders - or how desperately his former law colleagues will try to prevent him from uncovering the truth.
- Like life it did not have a totally happy ending.
Fantastic! Couldn't wait for the next opportunity to listen.
- little slow
I enjoyed the book. It reminded me a little bit of John Grisham because of the setting in the court room. Bunn has a way to go as a writer to catch up with Grisham in this genre, but it was refreshing to take a look at another legal/moral issue. I have been made aware of another evil.
