The chemical company is owned by a Wall Street predator named Carl Trudeau, and Mr. Trudeau is convinced the Court is not friendly enough. With judicial elections looming, he decides to try to purchase himself a seat on the Court. The cost is a few million dollars, a drop in the bucket for a billionaire like Mr. Trudeau. Through an intricate web of conspiracy and deceit, his political operatives recruit a young, unsuspecting candidate. They finance him, manipulate him, market him, and mold him into a potential Supreme Court justice. Their Supreme Court justice.
The Appeal is a powerful, timely, and shocking story of political and legal intrigue, a story that will leave listeners unable to think about our electoral process or judicial system in quite the same way ever again.

I just finished "The Appeal" in abridged format. I found it to be interesting and well presented. It held my attention to the end.
From some other reviews that were posted, I had some concerns about the ending being a disappointment. I have to disagree. Without giving the plot away, I think Grisham wanted to make us think about the subjects he was presenting. As far as I'm concerned, he succeeded.
