This is one of my favorite books--and movies. The main character is Rudy Baylor, a brand-new law school graduate who takes a job at a law firm that has a shady reputation. A "rainmaker" is a lawyer who can generate a lot of business for a law firm, and Rudy certainly does his best with his case against the Great Benefits Insurance Company.
I highly recommend the movie version as well. It is very faithful to the book. The audiobook is good as well; no one can read Grisham's books better than Michael Beck.
