Description
Book of Business - free eBook Edition by William McGrane It's the summer of 1994, and Gus Bondoc is going under. One of the best civil-defense lawyers in San Francisco, he's survived by sheer cunning and strict control. But when everything goes wrong at once - when a jury hits his biggest client with a $12 million penalty just after an entry-level employee helps a foreign government wrest $16 million from the most dangerous man he's ever worked for and then sets out to seduce him - Bondoc falls back on his worst instincts and the wrong people. With his business and his life at risk, with plenty of enemies and few friends, he begins the grim process of preserving himself at all costs. A raw portrait of the dark side of high-stakes civil-law practice, Book of Business is a frightening look at a shadowy world that many imagine but only true insiders ever see. Praise for Book of Business "Compulsively readable." Ephraim Margolin, Esq., Past President of the California Academy of Appellate Lawyers; Recipient, State Bar of California Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame Awards 2004. "Book of Business is a unique, no-holds-barred, insider's look at the rough and tumble world of big-time defense litigation, with all its ego-driven intrigue and treachery. The spectacular connivances, legal and even sexual manipulations of William McGrane's vast array of characters will keep you turning pages far into the night - and guarantee that you never look at a defense lawyer the same way again." Walter Walker, Esq., author of The Rules of the Knife Fight and The Immediate Prospect of Being Hanged. "Book of Business will be read by some as a roman à clef, but its interest and the reader's enjoyment lie in its deeper yet always vivid reflections of the legal profession and - from my perspective - the legal academy. If it makes other academic colleagues as uncomfortable with the mirror it has us face as it did me, it will have succeeded in one of its major goals without sacrificing our enjoyment of its lively story line." Professor Richard M. Buxbaum, Jackson H. Ralston Professor of International Law, University of California at Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall).
