'The Best Thriller Writer Alive' Ken Follett
There's one last change for justice . . .
They dreamed of changing the world. Instead they're facing a mountain of debt and no hope of a future.
Mark, Todd and Zola are starting to realise it's not even worth graduating from law school. They're better off hanging out at The Rooster Bar, plotting how to dodge the loan sharks.
But maybe there's another way. Maybe they know enough about the law to pass as lawyers.
Because it turns out the crooked hedge fund billionaire who owns their law school also runs the bank that arranged their student loans.
And it's time justice was served. Even if it means taking on the FBI to do it . . .

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 *
