JOHN GRISHAM'S FIRST ORIGINAL E-SHORT
 
In this standalone prequel to his #1 bestseller ROGUE LAWYER, John Grisham tells the story of how Sebastian Rudd finally found someone he could trust to be his driver, bodyguard, law clerk, and partner.
 
Sebastian Rudd, rogue lawyer, defends people other lawyers won't go near. It's controversial and dangerous work, which is why Sebastian needs his bodyguard/assistant/sidekick: Partner. So if Sebastian is just about the most unpopular lawyer in town, why is Partner so loyal to him? How did they meet? And what's the real story of this man of few words who's as good with a gun as he is with the law? The surprising answers are all in PARTNERS, John Grisham's first exclusively digital short story.

 

My Review ​

 

The "King" of legal thrillers, James Grisham delivers PARTNERS, a novella prequel to Rogue Lawyer, Sebastian Rudd---the background history of his dedicated driver, bodyguard, law clerk, and partner.

If you read Rogue Lawyer, (recommend) we met the street lawyer, who is not afraid to take on the unlikely of client, and actually go to trial. 

In this standalone prequel to his #1 bestseller ROGUE LAWYER, John Grisham tells the story of how Sebastian Rudd met someone he could trust. 

Rudd only has one employee: his driver, who's also his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddy. How they met: 

A father. Trying to keep his kid off the street. A black Thomas Ray Cardell (T-Ray) defendant. A man accused of killing a cop. A man with convictions, no priors, no arrests. A man fighting for his life. 

Crack, moving drugs, a flea market, a narcotics cop working single. A missing cop. Buck Lester, a cop—two men down. However, everything is not as it seems. There is a witness to the shooting. A jury trial. A witness in rehab, an addict. 

Someone loves the law, and working diligently on the case, to help Sebastian. The new partner. Entertaining, A short audio, narrated by Mark Deakins (same as Rogue Lawyer). Love short stories!

Looking forward to Grisham's Thriller #24, coming Oct 26, 2016!

Read My Review 

 

Rogue Lawyer 

 

On the right side of the law. Sort of. Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. He works out of a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, fine leather chairs, a hidden gun compartment, and a heavily armed driver.

 

He has no firm, no partners, no associates, and only one employee, his driver, who’s also his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddy. He lives alone in a small but extremely safe penthouse apartment, and his primary piece of furniture is a vintage pool table. He drinks small-batch bourbon and carries a gun.

 

 

Go Rogue!

 

 

 

 

 

About the Author

 

"Long before his name became synonymous with the modern legal thriller, he was working 60-70 hours a week at a small Southaven, Mississippi law practice, squeezing in time before going to the office and during courtroom recesses to work on his hobby—writing his first novel.

 

 

Born on February 8, 1955 in Jonesboro, Arkansas, to a construction worker and a homemaker, John Grisham as a child dreamed of being a professional baseball player. Realizing he didn't have the right stuff for a pro career, he shifted gears and majored in accounting at Mississippi State University. After graduating from law school at Ole Miss in 1981, he went on to practice law for nearly a decade in Southaven, specializing in criminal defense and personal injury litigation. In 1983, he was elected to the state House of Representatives and served until 1990.

 

One day at the DeSoto County courthouse, 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. Initially rejected by many publishers, it was eventually bought by Wynwood Press, who gave it a modest 5,000 copy printing and published it in June 1988.  Read More
