Descripción del producto
Jason Hunter's dwindling bank account is a daily reminder that Jason never should have left his job at a prestigious law firm to start his own practice, a solo shop located in uncomfortable proximity to a strip club. Hope arrives in the form of Maggie Moxley, a legal assistant who tearfully claims that Robert Spelkin III--her boss, and the office's most profitable partner--sexually assaulted her at work. Looking to transform Moxley's misfortune into profits, Jason takes on Spelkin and his powerhouse firm, Levitt, Bennett & Taylor, LLP. Spelkin, a man of unbridled ambition and aggression, demands not only victory but Jason's legal dismemberment. Levitt engages Rebecca Trent, widely regarded as the city's best employment litigator, to embark on a campaign that will annihilate Jason, his little firm, and his client.
Jason's only weapon is the truth of what happened that night. But the more he gathers evidence, the more he questions whether Moxley has told him the whole story. Meanwhile, Moxley's accusations initiate a series of events whose consequences extend far beyond accuser and accused, creating chaos for everybody in their orbit.

The Prick. I have to say, I really like the play on words in the title. Is it talking about how one person can burst another's bubble? Or is it referring to the term used to describe a person who does horrible things? In reality, both apply here. So, well done on the title. The narrative dives right in and does not slow down at all. The opening chapter is a tense situation between Jason and Maggie along with her slightly crazy husband. It sets the stage for everything that will come after. The novel also does a good job of not getting too bogged down in legal jargon and allows the reader to easily understand the actions taking place. I really liked the characters, even the ones that I hated, because I was able to understand their perspectives on what was happening. Very nicely written.
are all ‘mistruth’. But for a man who is willing to sacrifice everything for a new
opportunity to recover his former glory, Jason Hunter must ask himself, who is
innocent and who is the real responsible to blame?
This is a really intense story, there are a lot of perspectives here, on one side
there is Jason whose life’s been unfair to him after he regret to move on of his
boring, but comfortable life, he is somehow looking for a redemption here and is
presented by Maggie who came up with a case oddly predictable at first, but as
with everything, there is more in this than what it seems. I really love it, the
twists here fed the story to make something richer and far more intriguing than
just a legal dispute, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys stories like this
that deals in interesting and refreshing new ways to modern day problems.
The story goes mostly at a steady pace but definitely picks up after the layoff keeping the reader guessing what will happen next. The layoff sparks another client for Jason and adds additional complications. I was hoping that Jason would be smart enough to steer clear of Jessica after winning her case but he didn't. She had trouble written all over her! Overall, good read for anyone who likes satires filled with humor and suspense.
