New books to check-out

“The Litigators” is the newest John Grisham novel. As popular as Grisham is, chances are you will have to get on the waiting list for a chance at checking this one out. Oscar Finley and Wally Figg, partners in their seedy bungalow offices of Finley & Figg in southwest Chicago manage to scratch out a half-decent living with quickie divorces and DUIs while searching for their big break to come along. And then, along comes David Zinc, a young already burned-out attorney ready to join up with Finley & Figg.
