Rogue Lawyer

John Grisham (¬†has sold more than 275 million copies of his thriller fiction worldwide since 1989, and has been translated into 42 languages. He’s obviously struck on a winning formula. If you’ve never tried his entertaining witty style which drives forward a fast paced gritty narrative, how about giving the latest, Rogue Lawyer, a go?

The summary is as follows. Lawyer Sebastian Rudd takes the cases no one else wants to take: the drug-addled punk accused of murdering two little girls; a crime lord on death row; a homeowner who shot at a SWAT team. Rudd believes that every person accused of a crime is entitled to a fair trial – even if he has to cheat to get one. He antagonises people from both sides of the law: his last office was firebombed, either by drug dealers or cops. He doesn’t know or care which. But things are about to get even more complicated for Sebastian. Arch Swanger is the prime suspect in the abduction and presumed murder of 21-year-old Jiliana Kemp, the daughter of the assistant chief of police. When Swanger asks Sebastian to represent him, he lets Sebastian in on a terrible secret …one that will threaten everything Sebastian holds dear.
