    Terrifically exciting and likable first novel about tax lawyers and the Mafia, and a predictable success already sold to the movies, etc. Grisham does not cut as deep or furnish the occasional shining paragraph that Scott Turow does, but he writes a stripped, cliche-free page that grips and propels. Mitchell McDeere, married and tops in his class at Harvard, has great offers from several firms.

It happened on 2 January in an exit stairway at Ibrox Park (now Ibrox Stadium) in Glasgow, was the worst British football disaster until the Hillsborough disaster in Sheffield, England, in The stadium's owner, Rangers F.C., was later ruled Location: Ibrox Park, Glasgow, Scotland.
