First Look: Official Cover & Synopsis Of Rogue Lawyer By John Grisham Revealed

I was almost worried that John Grisham will not be releasing a legal genre book for adults since he just recently released Theodore Boone: The Fugitive. How relieved I was when a newsletter arrived confirming that he indeed will release a new book and it coming out this year.

Come October he will be releasing Rogue Lawyer. If I am not mistaken this is the 24th book in his legal genre line (for adults). The official cover has been release, including the official synopsis as well.

Check out the cover of Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham.

Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham

No offense to the official cover, I have created an altered version. This is simply to satisfy my OCD!


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.

Sebastian defends people other lawyers won’t go near: a drug-addled, tattooed kid rumored to be in a satanic cult, who is accused of molesting and murdering two little girls; a vicious crime lord on death row; a homeowner arrested for shooting at a SWAT team that mistakenly invaded his house. Why these clients? Because he believes everyone is entitled to a fair trial, even if he, Sebastian, has to cheat to secure one. He hates injustice, doesn’t like insurance companies, banks, or big corporations; he distrusts all levels of government and laughs at the justice system’s notions of ethical behavior.

Sebastian Rudd is one of John Grisham’s most colorful, outrageous, and vividly drawn characters yet. Gritty, witty, and impossible to put down, Rogue Lawyer showcases the master of the legal thriller at his very best.

Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham will be released on October 20, 2015..
