The Rainmaker

Summary

Rudy Baylor is a rookie lawyer who is about to take on a career-defining case, fighting for justice for a young man whose death could have easily been prevented.

This case has the power to change everything for Rudy - eliminate his debts and save his legal practice.

But he's never argued a case in court before. And he is up against the most expensive lawyers that money can buy.

Can Rudy win against the odds? Or will the truth be buried forever?
