Publisher's Summary

In this standalone prequel to his number-one best seller Rogue Lawyer, John Grisham tells the story of how Sebastian Rudd finally found someone he could trust to be his driver, bodyguard, law clerk, and partner.
Sebastian Rudd, rogue lawyer, defends people other lawyers won't go near. It's controversial and dangerous work, which is why Sebastian needs his bodyguard/assistant/sidekick, Partner. So if Sebastian is just about the most unpopular lawyer in town, why is Partner so loyal to him? How did they meet? And what's the real story of this man of few words who's as good with a gun as he is with the law? The surprising answers are all in Partners.

I wrote a 2 star review to Rogue Lawyer... it should not be surprising that I did particularly not like its prequel either. That's correct, John Grisham released a prequel novella to Rogue Lawyer 5 months after releasing the novel. I was a fan of Grisham from his earliest days and I have hard cover copies of most of his books released from 1989 through 2005. For 20 years Grisham set the standard for legal thrillers. His last several novels indicate he has either lost interest or lost his touch. There are now several legal thriller writers who are consistently better than Grisham including Robert Dugoni, Scott Pratt, Sheldon Siegel, Teresa Burrell, Joel Goldman, Anthony Franze, Michael Connelly, Greg Iles, Steve Martini, Marty Green, and H Terrell Griffin. I'll stop at 11, but there are more.

Partners is not a bad novella. Neither is it an excellent one.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Good background

If you've read Rogue Lawyer, you will love this story. If you haven't read Rogue Lawyer, you will want to after you read this. This is one of Grisham's best characters. I hope he writes more in this series.
