Join Doubleday Book Club for a great deal on THE APPEAL
All rise for John Grisham’s return to the courtroom! Just in time for the election season, “the most popular writer in the land” (The New York Times) has written a fast-paced nail-biter that portrays backroom politics at its dirtiest.
Attorneys Mary Grace and Wes Payton know the $41,000,000 awarded their client, Jeanette Baker, in a wrongful-death suit will do little to ease the agonizing loss of her husband and son. But they believe the nationwide headlines excoriating Krane Chemical Corporation for dumping toxic materials into Bowmore, Mississippi’s, drinking water is the real victory. And neither of them is worried about the company’s appeal, either; hell will freeze over before anyone can shake the rock-solid evidence they amassed against the industrial giant. Then again, there are those who have accused Krane's ruthless head executive of being the devil incarnate.
Carl Trudeau will do whatever it takes to retain his position, his power—and the enormous salary that keeps his designer-clad trophy wife content. In other words, he has to win the upcoming appeal. And if a corrupt political machine can make it happen, they can name their price for whatever’s left of his soul.
