Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham

I would like to read Rogue Lawyer, the latest gritty legal thriller by John Grisham. It concerns an unconventional street lawyer named Sebastian Rudd, who takes the cases no one else will take and who describes himself as a lone gunman and rogue who doesn’t maintain a pretty office filled with mahogany and leather, doesn’t belong to a big firm, prestigious or otherwise and doesn’t do good works through the bar association, he just fights bad systems and hates injustice.

Rudd also has an embittered ex-wife who is trying to prevent his very limited access to his small son. He also makes a lot of his income from gambling and he is part-owner of a very promising cage-fighter with a nasty temper and big ego, Who is being groomed for big things. Rudd believes that every person accused of a crime is entitled to a fair trial – even if he has to cheat to get one. He antagonises people from both sides of the law: his last office was firebombed, either by drug dealers or cops.

Rudd takes the case of a drug-addled punk accused of murdering two little girls; a crime lord on death row and a homeowner who shot at a SWAT team. Then things get even more complicated for Sebastian. When he gets involved in the case of psychopathic Arch Swanger, the prime suspect in the abduction and presumed murder of 21-year-old Jiliana Kemp, the daughter of the assistant chief of police. When Swanger asks Sebastian to represent him, he lets Sebastian in on a terrible secret . . . one that will threaten everything Sebastian holds dear.
