A high-powered lawyer leaves a Washington, DC, firm to practice “street law.” Unlikely, but Grisham has concocted a believable story that may signal that his latest bestseller has something more to say to his readers. Frank Muller is a master narrator. Muller offers a slightly restrained performance in terms of character voices. He ably captures the essence of the young attorney’s dilemma over abandoning his career, his discomfort as he finds himself in a homeless shelter for the first time and the growing drive that pushes him to change his life. Muller manages to convey inner conflicts not expressly stated, adding something more to Grisham’s story. The story is a great choice for recording as it unfolds in deliberate storytelling style and doesn’t have too many characters or scene shifts. THE STREET LAWYER is a departure from Grisham’s norm and is highly recommended for great listening. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 98]
