Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

In a plush Virginia office, a rich, angry old man is furiously rewriting his will. With his death just hours away, Troy Phelan wants to send a message to his children, his ex-wives, and his minions—a message that will touch off a vicious legal battle and transform dozens of lives. Because Troy Phelan’s new will names a sole surprise heir to his eleven-billion-dollar fortune: a mysterious woman named Rachel Lane, a missionary living deep in the jungles of Brazil.

Enter the lawyers. Nate O’Riley is fresh out of rehab, a disgraced corporate attorney handpicked for his last job: to find Rachel Lane at any cost. As Phelan’s family circles like vultures in D.C., Nate goes crashing through the Brazilian jungle, entering a world where money means nothing, where death is just one misstep away, and where a woman—pursued by enemies and friends alike—holds a stunning surprise of her own.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's Sycamore Row.

  • Amazing

    By Tim Williford
    It is rare that you read a work of fiction that challenges you to strive to become a better person and is entertaining all at the same time. This book is like no other novel I've ever read. It goes from extreme simplicity to extreme greed in just the turn of the page - and caught in the middle is the lead character, Nate, who I feel like I know personally. I loved this book so much that I stopped reading it abut 60 pages from the end just so I could make sure that I could finish it in peace and quiet the next morning. Reading this book is an experience I hope I never forget.

    Once again, John has gone beyond my expectations, threading the plot ever so delicately, leading me to believe the outcome might be A when in fact it was B, and B was even more amazing than I had hoped for A! Those who read John Grisham will appreciate the sensitive way he has exposed the scale of human values from the bottom of the barrel to the most enlightened among us. A definite read for anyone with a good heart!

    My mother gave me this book and another of Grisham's books, The Brethren. I really enjoyed both books very much and am looking forward to getting another.

    As always, Mr. Grisham takes you on a journey of greed, lust and life as it is portrayed in his fantasy world. A nice place to escape too. Fun and easy read.
  • A definite page turner!
