‘The best thriller writer alive’ – Ken Follett

Sometimes you have to fight dirty to get clean.

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.

John Grisham has perfected the art of cooking up convincing, fast-paced thrillers
Leaves one eager for more
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
The energy is sustained to the end
Sunday Times
A riveting read . . . A very satisfying ending
