Description

#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

    I usually cannot wait to read a Grisham book. Unfortunately this was not worth my time or $$. Unimaginative and down right boring. Couldn't even bother to finish it. Yawn.

    By Sebastian Rudd
    I read this novel quickly and found myself relating to Sebastian Rudd on so many levels. This was probably one of my favorite John Grisham novels to date. So many people don’t understand that Lawyers are faced with so many ethical dillemas constantly and if you are representing Criminal Defendants you may find yourself in similar situations as Rudd. I felt like Rudd, while imperfect and certainly willing to cross some ethical lines, ultimately was trying to do what was best for his client and even worked for free on some of the cases out of a moral obligation. Being a lawyer is one of the most difficult jobs I have come to realize. There are many easier things that a person could do to make money, but good lawyers are needed to help people who can’t help themselves through the court system. I got a kick out of the fact that Rudd had a mobile office in a sprinter van and had his own driver and would pack his golf clubs and take off for several days after a long trial. Once again, John Grisham’s characters hit close to home and the way he develops his characters is always outstanding.

    Grisham tried to get back to the writing lawyer thrillers, but this is certainly no way near the books that were hit movies. I am still missing the excitement from The Firm, Time to Kill and other originals. The Whistler, upcoming in October looks like it, but it is too far away.
  • OMG - So bad!!

    I cant believe how ridiculous the plot is; How untrue and badly written. Cant believe this is John Grisham writing at all. What happen to this author? I have read almost all of his books. Such a good author. This has to be his worst book ever. I should have follow the reviews.
  • A fast read .

    Enjoyed the story line but was a bit disappointed in the ending. It felt like he just ran out of inspiration.
