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, 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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "There comes a moment in this book when the reader is likely to think: Ah, now I see what he's doing. At first, the novel appears to be a series of tenuously related episodes in the life of defense attorney Sebastian Rudd, who operates his practice out of a customized van and who actively seeks out big cases and doesn't shy away from the media or from breaking the occasional rule. The cases include the murders of two girls; a man on trial for shooting a police officer (during a raid on the man's house); the abduction of a pregnant woman; and a prison break. They feel, at first, like stand-alone stories, but at some point past the halfway mark, they begin to link up, and we realize that Grisham is trying to show us the fabric of Rudd's working life chaotic, unpredictable, with several cases going on at the same time. Rudd shares some literary DNA with Michael Connelly's Mickey Haller (the Lincoln Lawyer), but Grisham's hero is no rip-off. Rudd is a complex, compelling character, who, we hope, will appear again and again. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The Grisham name, of course, is all that's needed to ensure an audience, but this time he delivers a quality thriller to go with the brand.--Pitt, David Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Grisham's antihero defense attorney, Sebastian Rand, who narrates this novel, handles cases no other lawyer would touch with a 10-foot habeas corpus. More obsessed by justice than legal process or friendship or social amenities, he bends the law to its breaking point, keeps to himself, and travels in a custom-built bulletproof van driven by a mainly silent ex-client he calls Partner. He's cold, contemptuous, and hard to like. Reader Deakins doesn't ignore this, but includes a smidgen more humanity than the author has put on the page, a welcome addition-not that his version of the lawyer is warm and fuzzy. Rand, after all, is dealing with a broken judicial system, described by Grisham with an insider's knowledge and read with eye-opening clarity by Deakins. He also adds an aural sense of continuity to a work that is more a collection of cases, won or lost, than a fully constructed novel. A Doubleday hardcover. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
