Description

#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.

  • A unique novel

    In a swift change of pace from the typical courtroom thriller, this novel is a ballad to the hundreds of thousands of souls who strive or have striven after higher education. What it lacks in adventure, it gives back in painful truth : Sometimes, higher education come with a high price. If you want a satisfying read, this book delivers.
  • Entertaining, but...

    I like John Grisham a lot, but had a little trouble with this one. I am an attorney and remember law school vividly. The premise and action of the book require frequent spans of suspension of disbelief. Implausible, improbable and impossible are all adjectives I would use to describe many of the situations in the book. But aside from that, it was entertaining.

    I will say the classic line, “I never write reviews but had to this time.” I read books to try to escape from real life. Oh ... ok ... I don’t mind a bit of truth/education in fiction books, but not to the level this book went. Suicide, horrible corruption, lack of morals ... the list goes on for this book. Again if you want to be TOTALLY depressed, read this book. Sorry John, I have always liked your books and have read MANY of yours but I put this one down half way through. I didn’t see any reason to finish it.

    This book was far toooooo intense to qualify as “enjoyable reading”. Toooo many scenes, too many characters and too much ado for me to say I enjoyed it. John Grisham has written much more enjoyable material in the past. These “cookie cutter” books aren’t as enjoyable to as his much earlier writings.
  • Awesome book

    This latest John Grisham is very disappointing. Not at all suspenseful. Feels amateurish, almost like someone else wrote it and Grisham slapped his name on it. That is probably not the case but if this what Grisham’s writing has evolved into he better put down his pen. Ugh.
  • A great read book that fills you with much emotions
