Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham

R355.00

Sebastian Rudd is a lawyer who specializes in defending those hopeless cases that other lawyers won’t touch. He is non-conformist, oddly endearing and works out of a bulletproof van with a minibar. And he has a partner called Partner. The first part of the story relives an old case and familiarizes the reader with his background, but then the cases start piling up and the plot develops to include enough typical Grisham courtroom drama to offset the action. A fun, enjoyable read that Grisham fans are sure to enjoy.

Description

I’m not a typical lawyer. I don’t maintain a pretty office filled with mahogany and leather. I don’t belong to a big firm, prestigious or otherwise. I don’t do good works through the bar association. I’m a lone gunman, a rogue who fights bad systems and hates injustice …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. 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.
