A young rookie lawyer takes on a big insurance company. There is no reason to complain that this is yet another lawyer story about a court case.
There is a time to move beyond that initial reaction with John Grisham books. After all, if it works, why change? Of the few people who do not like this book, they complain that The Rainmaker lacks any kind of action.
Therefore, that makes it "boring". Well, if it has a good plot, who needs continuous action? This novel was surprising, and it was quite good, in fact. It starts off with young Rudy looking over some potential cases. Obviously not for him, at least yet, because he is just about to graduate law school and he has not taken the bar exam yet.
Out of the two cases that most interest him, the most notable one is a case against an insurance company. After he finishes school, the firm he was about to work for fires Rudy, before he even starts working.
This was due to new ownership. The next firm who hires him, let him go after two days. They just wanted the insurance company case he was working on. Brusier turns out to be a real fraud. A good lawyer, mind you, but a bit illegal. Here, Rudy meets one of his associates, Deck Shiffler.
He failed the bar exam six times in a row. Well, Brusier eventually is indicted for one of the many crimes he is involved with. Rudy is yet again left on his own, so he eventually teams up with Deck and starts a temporary firm.

She is married to a spouse-abuser. At the end of this story, that is, once the insurance company trial is over, this plot with Kelly continues on for a long while and drags along slowly.
At least, it is rather amusing in part. Rudy Baylor is the reason that this is such a good book. However, because this story was told in the first person - it was enough where you could and wanted to relate with Rudy - a true underdog.
The book starts off very good, but never really climaxed. If you add up all of the elements, it seems the book is solid - nothing more.
