Stories of David and Goliath struggles in the courts are not new in legal thrillers; but in this story, figuring out just who is Goliath opens the reader to a discovery of unexpected truths about today’s highly litigious court system. Good versus evil, yes, but just what is the evil that is supposed to be vanquished?
A woman living near a toxic waste site that was treated with a new process using genetically engineered microbes develops a mysterious neurological illness. By chance, she meets a passionate young lawyer at a neighborhood church supper. He feels obligated to find justice for his new struggling client and in the process takes on the largest law firm in Minnesota. How far will Dillon Love go for his client if the end result of his lawsuit is to destroy the brilliant university professor who has dedicated his entire life to improving the environment? How far will Henry Holten go to defeat the graceful woman whose family and financial future is dependent upon the success of her court case?
The Litigators is a riveting page-turner, which asks if there can be any justice for either party without infliction of a great injustice on the other. This winner-take-all legal battle brings together three tenacious lawyers and their highly worthy clients in a way that forever changes the lives of all.

Author Bio: Lindsay G. Arthur, Jr. is a well-known lawyer who has tried over 150 cases during his 35-year career. His clients have sent him throughout the United States to represent them in a wide variety of matters. In 1985 he founded a bio-tech company that used genetic engineering to develop microorganisms the company used to degrade toxic waste.
Arthur has lectured and published extensively on a variety of legal topics. While The Litigators is his first novel, he has fully lived the plot it unravels, a challenging products liability case involving genetically engineered organisms. The Litigators is prompted by his love for the law, whose greatest virtue is, paradoxically, its willingness to tolerate strident criticism. In that spirit Arthur speaks here, as an entrenched insider, with a bold critique of a judicial system that displays a myopic lack of human understandings by lawyers who are naively focused on victory at all costs rather than addressing the real human problems of their clients.
Lindsay is also a keen sportsman and lover of the outdoors. He and his wife, Kathy, reside in the Minneapolis area. To learn more, check out his site, his page on Scarletta Press, Facebook, or email him via email@example.com - ATTN Lindsay Arthur.
