This is the true story of an epic courtroom showdown. Two of the nation's largest corporations stand accused of causing the deaths of children.
Representing the bereaved parents, the unlikeliest of heroes emerges: a young, flamboyant Porsche-driving lawyer who hopes to win millions of dollars and ends up nearly losing everything--including his sanity. A Civil Action is the searing, compelling tale of a legal system gone awry--one in which greed and power fight an unending struggle against justice.
Yet it is also the story of how one man can ultimately make a difference. With an unstoppable narrative power reminiscent of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood, A Civil Action is an unforgettable reading experience that leaves the reader both shocked and enlightened.
