'The best thriller writer alive' - Ken Follett 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 fire-bombed, either by drug dealers or cops. He doesn't know or care which. But things are about to get even more complicated for Sebastian. Carl Swagger is the prime suspect in the abduction and presumed murder of 21-year-old Jillian Kemp, the daughter of the assistant chief of police. When Swagger 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
John Grisham has perfected the art of cooking up convincing, fast-paced thrillers * Telegraph *
Leaves one eager for more * Spectator *
No one does it better than Grisham * Daily Telegraph *
A master storyteller * Huffington Post *
Sebastian Rudd is a kind of social justice warrior and Grisham uses him to take jabs at the legal system . . . all with a blunt, rude, gravelly poetic wise guy voice that makes Rudd come across as a kind of 21st-century Philip Marlowe. * Benjamin Percy, The New York Times Book Review *
Terrific . . . The biggest mystery that ROGUE LAWYER poses is how Grisham, at this stage in his long writing career, can still devise all these distinctive characters, tricky legal predicaments and roguishly cheating ways to worm out of them. It's one mystery we Grisham fans just want to appreciate, rather than solve. * Washington Post *
Highly readable, thanks to Grisham's fast-moving narrative skills * Independent *
The energy is sustained to the end * Sunday Times *
A riveting read . . . A very satisfying ending * Gloria Hunniford, Mail on Sunday *
