John Grisham Names 'Gray Mountain' As Next Legal Thriller Coming Out This Fall

Honestly, I haven't even started reading my copy of Sycamore Row by John Grisham. I've been immersing my self lately with High Fantasies by Brandon Sanderson, Patrick Rothfuss, George R. R. Martin, Robert Jordan, Tad Williams, and more... I barely touched my other books from other genres.

Now another non-fantasy book will be added to my ever growing reading list as I'll surely buy John Grisham's just-announced new legal thriller coming out this fall. The novel will be titled Gray Mountain. It is the author's 27th novel for adult readers, but only the 22nd among his legal thrillers (excluding Theodore Boone series, non-fictions and short stories).

What can you say about the cover of Gray Mountain by John Grisham?

Gray Mountain by 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.

Gray Mountain by John Grisham will be released on October 21, 2014.
