#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND NPR - Featuring one of John Grisham's most colorful, outrageous, and vividly drawn characters yet, Rogue Lawyer showcases the master of the legal thriller at his very best.

On the right side of the law--sort of--Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. His office is a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, and fine leather chairs. He has no firm, no partners, and only one employee: his heavily armed driver, who also so happens to be his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddie. Sebastian drinks small-batch bourbon and carries a gun. He defends people other lawyers won't go near: a drug-addled, tattooed kid rumored to be in a satanic cult; a vicious crime lord on death row; a homeowner arrested for shooting at a SWAT team that mistakenly invaded his house. Why these clients? Because Sebastian believes everyone is entitled to a fair trial--even if he has to bend the law to secure one. Praise for Rogue Lawyer

"Terrific . . . inventive . . . Grisham still makes it look easy."--Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post

"Sebastian Rudd is . . . a kind of twenty-first-century Philip Marlowe . . . with a blunt, rude, gravelly poetic wiseguy voice."--Benjamin Percy, The New York Times Book Review

"Deeply engaging and entertaining . . . Grisham finds] intense drama in the little skirmishes that play out across our legal system every day."--Charles Finch, USA Today

"Grisham has taken a step in an intriguing new direction."--Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Notă biografică

John Grisham


"Terrific Grisham, can still devise distinctivecharacters, tricky legal predicaments and rogueishly cheating ways to worm out of them."
--Maureen Corrigan, "The Washington Post"
"Sebastian Rudd is a kind of social justice warrior and Grisham uses him to take jabs at the legal system all with a blunt, rude, gravelly poetic wise guy voice that makes Rudd come across as a kind of 21st-century Philip Marlowe."
--Benjamin Percy, "The New York Times Book Review""
