'The Best Thriller Writer Alive' Ken Follett

John Grisham's newest legal thriller takes you inside a law firm that shouldn't exist.

They were three young law students. They dreamed of changing the world. But they were duped. They took out massive student loans and have no hope of graduating with a good job.

Now the three friends have given up studying and spend a lot of time plotting in a bar. There is only way out of their crushing debt: pretend to be real lawyers and expose the crooked hedge fund operator who owns both the school and the bank that arranged their student loans.

They are taking a desperate risk. After all, they are going to war with a billionaire and the might of the FBI.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The reason [Grisham is] so popular is because he's so good. If anything, he may be America's most underrated best selling author, because all he does is write compelling, page-turning fiction, book after book, year after year -- Michael Levin, New York Times bestselling author * Huffington Post *
The multi-layered plot is inventively sustained and, as always with Grisham, the scintillating storytelling serves to highlight a substantial issue: the ruinous repercussions of graduate debt and the scandal of "diploma mill" colleges * The Sunday Times *
A wild, hard-to-put-down romp * The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette *
Smartly told . . . Bravo to Grisham for using his star power to shine another spotlight on an all-too-real problem in this gratifying and all-too-real book * The Washington Post *
Grisham writes in such an inventive spirit . . . [a] buoyant, mischievous thriller . . . THE ROOSTER BAR is written with the same verve Grisham brought to this summer's CAMINO ISLAND with the same sense that this reliable best-selling author is feeling real pleasure, and not just obligation, in delivering his work * New York Times *
Good idea; good, vengeful execution * Janet Maslin, Independent *
Engrossing * Chris Roberts, CrimeReview.co.uk *
