Pot boiler. Not worth too much more. But not bad for a legal pot boiler. Peter Hale is the arrogant green lawyer born to privilege, who's father has
exiled him to w=Whitaker County. It's a backwater, and Peter shows no humility whatsoever wrt being there. This seems to be the same story as
Promised Land (see several pages back) but in a legal thriller. Better done though. Not much better, but at least the characters are less one dimensional.
