ROGUE LAWYER by John Grisham
With 30 novels under his belt, in a career spanning three decades, John Grisham makes writing thrillers seem oh-so-easy! Truth is, the secret of his sustained success lies in his grasp over characters and command over the language. “Rogue Lawyer” proves this once more. The story of Sebastian Rudd, a street lawyer, who has so many enemies that he operates out of a bulletproof van and changes motel rooms every few nights, in the interest of his safety. He takes up cases no one else touches: a crime lord on death row, a teenager accused of double murder and so on. A riveting read, this is classic Grisham.
