The Litigators

By John Grisham

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

He's escaped the job from hell. Now he's got one hell of a job.

David Zinc has it all: Big firm, big salary, life in the lawyer's fast lane.

Until the day he snaps and throws it all away.

Leaving the world of corporate law far behind, he talks himself into a new job with Finley & Figg. A self-styled 'boutique' firm with only two partners, Oscar Finley and Wally Figg are ambulance-chasing street lawyers who hustle nickel-and-dime cases, dreaming of landing the big win.

For all his Harvard Law Degree and five years with Chicago's top firm, Zinc has never entered a courtroom, never helped a client who really needed a lawyer,

never handled a gun.

All that is about to change.

Praise for John Grisham:

'The best thriller writer alive'

— Ken Follett, Evening Standard
His stories are ferociously plot driven: they will keep you awake all night — Independent on Sunday
Grisham is a superb, instinctive storyteller — The Times
Few writers have so much to say, the skills to make reading what they say an irresistible pleasure - and the clout to say it to an audience of millions — Independent
Enthralling characters and mesmeric plot — Time Out
As exciting as a car chase with a load of dynamite thrown in — Daily Mail
Grisham reigns supreme — Sunday Express
No one does it better than Grisham — Daily Telegraph
Grisham knows what he's doing. The book is crisply written (with some agreeably sly one-liners) and the narrative canters along. — Andrew Taylor, The Spectator
...entirely gripping... — The Evening Standard
Grisham in reliable form. — The Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin
'The Litigators is Grisham at his very best, fast-paced, funny and packed with living and breathing characters that you'd love to share an after-court beer with. Set aside a weekend for this one, because you won't want to put it down'. — Irish Examiner
This is the master of the legal thriller at his best. You won't want to put it down! — Press Association
After a slow build setting the scene, the case turns pear-shaped; and by the time we get to court, there's a compelling argument for readers to demolish this classic page-turner in one epic sitting. — Townsville Bulletin
The Litigators reminds fans of this genre just what a creative genius Grisham is. A very entertaining read. — Launceston Examiner
Grisham is back on top form with this courtroom thriller.... Unusually for Grisham he is injecting quite a lot of humour into this book which I found worked really well... 'The Litigators' is a courtroom battle that will keep you turning the pages until the end, wanting to see the big guns fail, but you will have to wait until the last few pages until you find out who wins. A welcome return to form for Grisham. — Crimesquad.com
Grisham hasn't lost his deft touch. What a rollicking ride it turns out to be. — The Sunday Telegraph and Sunday Herald Sun
A tremendously entertaining romp, filled with the kind of courtroom strategies, theatrics and suspense that have made John Grisham America's favourite storyteller. — Gympie Times

Gray Mountain

John Grisham

The Great Recession of 2008 left many young professionals out of work. Promising careers were suddenly ended as banks, hedge funds, and law firms engaged in mass lay-offs and brutal belt tightening. Samantha Kofer was a third year associate at Scully & Pershing, New York City's largest law firm. Two weeks after Lehman Brothers collapsed, she lost her job, her security, and her future. A week later she was working as an unpaid intern in a legal aid clinic deep in small town Appalachia. There, for the first time in her career, she was confronted with real clients with real problems. She also stumbled across secrets that should have remained buried deep in the mountains forever.

But then his bike is vandalised, he's attacked while doing his homework and, worst of all, framed for a robbery. When stolen computer equipment turns up in Theo's school locker, the police start leaning on him hard. And he is the only suspect. What if he is found guilty? What about his dreams of becoming a lawyer? In a race against time, aided by his renegade uncle, Ike, Theo must find the real felon and reveal the true motivation behind the crimes of which he stands accused.
