#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

“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

    A different kind of book for Grisham. I was 50% thru the book before I got interested. I think his best writing days are behind him.

    From Pinkgirlrules
    The book is like a collection of short stories or writing or a serial. Overall not engaging and more of the same from Grishom. At least their was no tort cases this time.
  • Another solid Grisham book

    From Kabbie15
    I've read all his books and am a big fan. This one had a different style to it but it's a very good book and intriguing. Not as upper echelon as The Firm but definitely worst the read.

    I admit my faith in this author was eroding. One a year was losing its magic for me. But the new lawyer is entertaining and his situations ring true. Congrats.
