Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham Book Summary

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND NPR • Featuring one of John Grisham’s most colorful, outrageous, and vividly drawn characters yet, Rogue Lawyer showcases the master of the legal thriller at his very best.
 
On the right side of the law—sort of—Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. His office is a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, and fine leather chairs. He has no firm, no partners, and only one employee: his heavily armed driver, who also so happens to be his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddie. Sebastian drinks small-batch bourbon and carries a gun. He defends people other lawyers won’t go near: a drug-addled, tattooed kid rumored to be in a satanic cult; 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 Sebastian believes everyone is entitled to a fair trial—even if he has to bend the law to secure one.
 
Praise for Rogue Lawyer
 
“Terrific . . . inventive . . . Grisham still makes it look easy.”—Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post
 
“Sebastian Rudd is . . . a kind of twenty-first-century Philip Marlowe . . . with a blunt, rude, gravelly poetic wiseguy voice.”—Benjamin Percy, The New York Times Book Review
 
“Deeply engaging and entertaining . . . [Grisham finds] intense drama in the little skirmishes that play out across our legal system every day.”—Charles Finch, USA Today
 
“Grisham has taken a step in an intriguing new direction.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Great author but this is not the best taleI love Grisham but I didn't love this novel. Too many wandering subplots; so many Dickensonian travails; poor construction and a weak wrap-up. Occasionally interesting but often tedious. I look forward to the next Grisham novel and hope that this effort was just an aberration..Score: 2/5

Crap. Don't waste your moneyWay to jump right on the cop bashing band wagon to make a few bucks. I have been a Grisham fan for years but, no longer. This book is so severely lacking any of the substance one would expect from him. But why should he care, he's already got my money. Do yourself a favor and don't waste yours..Score: 1/5

Phoned This One InGrisham books getting progressively worse. This latest effort is effectively a series of short stories loosely ( very) tied together. Have been a loyal Grisham reader up until now, but this disjointed book seemed like it was quickly thrown together for the sake of making a few more bucks. I won't be fooled again by buying another Grisham book. Time for him to call I quits..Score: 1/5

Rogue LawerVery intriguing book. A completely different contrary viewpoint towards law enforcement and the criminal justice system. Very detailed and engrossing. Gresham hit a home run with this one..Score: 5/5

Grisham jumps on the cop-hating bandwagonI have read all of Grisham's books and I liked this one the least. He goes way overboard criticizing cops, judges and the entire judicial system. He even takes a shot at America itself. If you believe Grisham, most cops are dirty with only a few good ones. 2015 was a rough year for our brave men and women who protect us. I appreciate them. Evidently Grisham does not feel the same way based on this book..Score: 1/5

Pass on this oneTerrible story.... it’s not a story as you would expect. Couldn’t hang with the boredom. Don’t waste your money..Score: 1/5

GeniusFolks who don't get what Grisham was doing here are missing pure genius. The ability to tell different tells from first person and tie them all together with a neat bow at the end is not something many authors can do well but Grisham can and did. Do yourself a favor. Get out of your little box and read this story. It is not only gripping, it is cool..Score: 5/5

A fast read .Enjoyed the story line but was a bit disappointed in the ending. It felt like he just ran out of inspiration..Score: 4/5

Rogue LawyerI am done with Grisham this is one of the worst books I have ever read my him It really is sad because I loved his other work The Firm' Pelican Brief etc This was terrible.Score: 1/5

By Tanner HarrisI read this novel quickly and found myself relating to Sebastian Rudd on so many levels. This was probably one of my favorite John Grisham novels to date. So many people don’t understand that Lawyers are faced with so many ethical dillemas constantly and if you are representing Criminal Defendants you may find yourself in similar situations as Rudd. I felt like Rudd, while imperfect and certainly willing to cross some ethical lines, ultimately was trying to do what was best for his client and even worked for free on some of the cases out of a moral obligation. Being a lawyer is one of the most difficult jobs I have come to realize. There are many easier things that a person could do to make money, but good lawyers are needed to help people who can’t help themselves through the court system. I got a kick out of the fact that Rudd had a mobile office in a sprinter van and had his own driver and would pack his golf clubs and take off for several days after a long trial. Once again, John Grisham’s characters hit close to home and the way he develops his characters is always outstanding..Score: 4/5

AwesomeI almost didn't read this book because of a couple of bad reviews, but my friend recommended it highly so i gave it a try. So glad i did. It was a page-turner for sure. Made me wonder if those reviewers read the same book I did. Grisham is a great writer and story-teller, and if you want an awesome read, make this your next book. you're welcome in advance!.Score: 5/5

Rogue LawyerGrisham tried to get back to the writing lawyer thrillers, but this is certainly no way near the books that were hit movies.
