Publisher's Summary

On the right side of the law. Sort of.
Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. He works out of a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, fine leather chairs, a hidden gun compartment, and a heavily armed driver. He has no firm, no partners, no associates, and only one employee: his driver, who's also his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddy. He lives alone in a small but extremely safe penthouse apartment, and his primary piece of furniture is a vintage pool table. He drinks small-batch bourbon and carries a gun.
Sebastian defends people other lawyers won't go near: a drug-addled, tattooed kid rumored to be in a satanic cult, who is accused of molesting and murdering two little girls; a vicious crime lord on death row; a homeowner arrested for shooting at a SWAT team that mistakenly invaded his house. Why these clients? Because he believes everyone is entitled to a fair trial, even if he, Sebastian, has to cheat to secure one. He hates injustice and doesn't like insurance companies, banks, or big corporations; he distrusts all levels of government and laughs at the justice system's notions of ethical behavior.
Sebastian Rudd is one of John Grisham's most colorful, outrageous, and vividly drawn characters yet. Gritty, witty, and impossible to put down, Rogue Lawyer showcases the master of the legal thriller at his very best.

The worst Grisham EVER

After writing some of the best legal thrillers it's hard to believe that John Grisham sat down and wrote this trashy book. There is nothing to like about the story or the characters. In the beginning we learn that the accused murderer is a hardcore low life who deserves to be in prison even if he didn't commit the heinous crime. Attorney Sebastian Rudd, like other Grisham lawyers, is challenging the rotten legal system from page one. Then we switch to cage fighting and betting on fighters that he owns a percentage of. At that point it's time to push the eject button and realize you have been duped by a famous name. Avoid this book.

Rogue indeed

What disappointed you about Rogue Lawyer?

This is one of the least favorites of Grisham's work. A sorta kinda take off on Lincoln Lawyer but nowhere nearly as good as the least enjoyable of that series. The story begins ok but descends into a choppy mess. I will recommend that my friends do not waste their time.

What was most disappointing about John Grisham’s story?

The lack of continuity.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment, is the word I choose because I had waited on this novel since it became available on the pre-order list. It was not up to my expectations at all. Boo!
