Synopsis

The Litigators by John Grisham

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.

Reviews

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 20111201

'Grisham in reliable form.'
The Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin 20111126

'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 20111112 'This is the master of the legal thriller at his best. You won't want to put it down!'
Press Association 20111112

'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 20111119

'The Litigators reminds fans of this genre just what a creative genius Grisham is. A very entertaining read.'
Launceston Examiner 20111112

'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

The Sunday Telegraph and Sunday Herald Sun 20111204

'A tremendously entertaining romp, filled with the kind of courtroom strategies, theatrics and suspense that have made John Grisham America's favourite storyteller.'

About the Author

John Grisham

John Grisham as a child dreamed of being a professional baseball player. After graduating from law school at Ole Miss in 1981, he went on to practice law for nearly a decade, specializing in criminal defense and personal injury litigation. One day, Grisham overheard the harrowing testimony of a twelve-year-old rape victim and was inspired to start a novel exploring what would have happened if the girl's father had murdered her assailants. Getting up at 5 a.m. every day to get in several hours of writing time before heading off to work, Grisham spent three years on A Time to Kill and finished it in 1987. His next novel, The Firm, spent 47 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list and became the bestselling novel of 1991. Since then, he has written one novel a year, including The Client, The Pelican Brief, The Rainmaker and The Runaway Jury. Today, Grisham has written a collection of stories, a work of nonfiction, three sports novels, four kids' books, and many legal thrillers. His work has been translated into 42 languages. He lives near Charlottesville, Virginia.
