Theodore, or "Teddy" by his mother, is the son of two lawyers, the nephew of a third lawyer and knows more about the law than most adults. In fact his friends frequently come to him for legal advice, for free of course. However, when one of his friends comes to him with information that could change the course of the first major criminal trail since the 1950s, Theodore doesn't know what to do. Without this information, a murderer could go free, but a promise is a promise, and lawyers rarely break client's confidentiality. So, what's a kid to do?
John Grisham brings to this story the same suspense he gives all his tales and readers won't be sorry in reading this book. Who cares if the main character is 13?
