Mark Sway is eleven and he knows where a body is hidden. If the FBI can find it they can prove it is a Mafia murder. Mark wants to tell the truth but he also wants to stay alive. He employs a lawyer who must protect him from both the law and the killers. Not an easy job but luckily she has a very clever client! A powerful and original best-seller, The Client is Grisham's fourth legal thriller. It is also a film starring Susan Sarandon and Tommy Lee Jones.
With her sparkling voice and superb acting ability, Blair Brown gives an impressive reading of this John Grisham blockbuster. The story hinges on a young boy who gets an unwanted earful of murder, politics--and dangerous secrets about both--from a conscience-stricken mob lawyer bent on suicide. "I can tell you where the body is... the most notorious undiscovered corpse of our time." Just the kind of information most children don't need, especially when the snakeskin-wearing hit man finds out what he knows. Aside from musical cues scattered as superfluously as laugh tracks on a sitcom, the production quality is stellar, preserving the crispness of Blair's voice and the nuances of her excellent interpretation.
