Summary
#1 New York Times bestselling author John Grisham's newest legal thriller takes you inside a law firm that's on shaky ground.

Mark, Todd, and Zola came to law school to change the world, to make it a better place. But now, as third-year students, these close friends realize they have been duped. They all borrowed heavily to attend a third-tier, for-profit law school so mediocre that its graduates rarely pass the bar exam, let alone get good jobs. And when they learn that their school is one of a chain owned by a shady New York hedge-fund operator who also happens to own a bank specializing in student loans, the three know they have been caught up in The Great Law School Scam.
But maybe there's a way out. Maybe there's a way to escape their crushing debt, expose the bank and the scam, and make a few bucks in the process. But to do so, they would first have to quit school. And leaving law school a few short months before graduation would be completely crazy, right? Well, yes and no . . .
Pull up a stool, grab a cold one, and get ready to spend some time at The Rooster Bar .
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Grisham's latest centers on for-profit diploma mills that pose as real universities. The tale features a quartet of friends who attend the rather disreputable Foggy Bottom Law School in Washington, D.C. One of the friends, Gordy, suffocating (as they all are) under a crippling student loan and with zero employment prospects, discovers a conspiracy involving the owner of their law school, the student-loan people, and the partners in seedy law firms who use Foggy Bottom's graduates as interns with the promise of future employment that never seems to materialize. After Gordy apparently takes his own life, the remaining friends band together to find some form of justice for their friend and for themselves. The novel has some strikingly well-drawn characters and a plot that edges tantalizingly close to a full-on caper story, but it also boasts some shrewd commentary on the scourge of fraudulent for-profit universities and the disastrous impact they can have on people's lives. It feels like this is a subject close to Grisham's heart, and he makes the most of it. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A Grisham novel's inevitable rise to bestsellerdom is typically supported by solid storytelling and an all-in marketing campaign, and this one is no exception.--Pitt, David Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Grisham's latest focuses on three law students-Mark Frazier, Todd Lucero, and Zola Maal-who, shaken by the suicide of their law school pal, Gordy Tanner, take stock of their student loan debts and dim job prospects. They decide to drop out and practice law without a license, and to scam the rich man profiting from their tuitions and loans. The author uses the resulting inventive and intriguing yarn to illuminate for-profit law schools, massive student debt, and harsh, family-destroying U.S. immigration policies (ICE sends Zola's parents and older brother back to their native Senegal) without letting commentary overwhelm the novel's entertainment value. His style is breezy and upbeat, as is reader Fliakos's. The veteran actor reads the novel with a voice that accurately reflects the roller-coaster emotions of the three young protagonists. He also smartly captures their differing personalities-Mark's self-confident, outgoing persona that can't quite mask his fear of failure; Todd's pragmatic pessimism; and Zola's desperation, which overcomes her hesitancy about joining the team. Fliakos's strong performance is both enjoyable and affecting. A Doubleday hardcover. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
