This synopsis report prepared by F. Scott Sinclair
The story of a young rookie lawyer pleading his first trial against a Life Insurance Company. The book excellently describes the horrible face of insurance corporates and their malpractices and how these companies play with the lives of people. The interesting part is the descriptive court room scenes. Worth reading book.
