Publisher's Summary

Worldwide best-seller John Grisham goes rogue with his most suspenseful thriller yet....

Sometimes you have to fight dirty to get clean.

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 accused of shooting at a SWAT team. l

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.

Gritty, witty, and impossible to put down, Rogue Lawyer is the master of the legal thriller at his very best.

    Story
    "Grisham scores"

    Rogue Lawyer is another great courtroom drama by Grisham. His knowledge gained through experience of the American law system allows him to write with such an understanding that supports the storyline throughout.

    The characters are very real so realistic that

    Story
    "Rogue with good intentions and a soft heart mostly"
    If you could sum up Rogue Lawyer in three words, what would they be?

    Fighting Courtroom Divorce.


    Would you recommend Rogue Lawyer to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes. It was good fun and the various plots joined up nicely. The overlay of his family life added well to the complications of the story.


    What about Mark Deakins’s performance did you like?

    For an American he did very well, but then he is performing Americans.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the Rogue tried to help those who did not want it. And the end.

    "Rubbish collection of stories read in monotone!"

    If it wasn't this month's Book Club read I would have stopped after chapter 1. Had to stop regularly for coffee and a stretch to avoid falling asleep. Thought John Grisham was meant to be good!

    Story
    "Disjointed & unoriginal"

    About a guy who doesn't like injustices wrought by supposedly good guy organisations such as the police; so he uses the law to try to rectify injustices; & uses other means too. OK if your tipple is standard American movie type scripts/ stories. Maybe of interest to the opposite of a chick novel genre group of readers. Starts off with short stories. There's repetition in some of the stories of the same facts eg how the lawyer met his wife. We knew that from the 1 at story. About 2/2 way through the short stories develop a theme running through them all. It gets a bit more interesting towards the end - but I had a big sigh when my device read "7 hrs left" to go. A literary scholar this popular writer is not, in that there is no unique prosaic writing. Lack of any deep, meaningful metaphors that bring another nuance of meaning to the pages. Very blokey type story in my view.

    "Absolutely spellbinding."

    I had forgotten what a fantastic writer John Grisham is. The reading made this story so enthralling that I could not stop listening. Started listening yesterday evening and only paused to sleep and eat. I've always read the books but now I can wait to listen to the next one.

    "Several stories connected loosely."

    I thought the story telling was excellent and as usual the John Grisham novel held the attention. The final part was fairly predictable but I continued listening in case I was wrong. I am always left wondering how accurate the legal side of the story is correct.

    "Brilliant read."

    Captivating crime book. Hope that this is the first of a series of books for the character of Sebastian Rudd as I was left wanting more. The narrator performs perfectly and this mixed with the perfect story keeps you hooked.

    "More connected short stories than a single novel"

    Its not terrible, the main character and the stories are interesting but it isnt a single gripping novel like his best can be.
