Literary Guild describes The Trial: A pharmaceutical giant’s disregard for human life spurs to action a small-town lawyer in Larry D. Thompson’s stunning courtroom drama, The Trial. Luke Vaughn’s rage stems from the fact that, unbeknownst to him, his daughter, a rebellious teenager, volunteered for a clinical drug trial that’s left her in desperate need of a liver transplant—and he can’t afford it. So Luke decides to make the culprits pay, and he chooses to do so in the venue he knows best…the courtroom. When Luke discovers what he suspected all along—that the drug company and the FDA knew the pill carried potentially lethal side effects—he thinks the case is won. But his adversary’s prescription for silencing the opposition calls for bribery, kidnapping…and murder.
