Publisher Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author John Grisham’s newest legal thriller takes you inside a law firm that’s on shaky ground.



Mark, Todd, and Zola came to law school to change the world, to make it a better place. But now, as third-year students, these close friends realize they have been duped. They all borrowed heavily to attend a third-tier, for-profit law school so mediocre that its graduates rarely pass the bar exam, let alone get good jobs. And when they learn that their school is one of a chain owned by a shady New York hedge-fund operator who also happens to own a bank specializing in student loans, the three know they have been caught up in The Great Law School Scam.

     But maybe there's a way out. Maybe there’s a way to escape their crushing debt, expose the bank and the scam, and make a few bucks in the process. But to do so, they would first have to quit school. And leaving law school a few short months before graduation would be completely crazy, right?  Well, yes and no . . .

     Pull up a stool, grab a cold one, and get ready to spend some time at The Rooster Bar.

Quotes

  • [A] smartly told tale . . . gratifying and all-too-real.

    - The Washington Post
  • Satisfying . . . Grisham [is] at his best when he brings his sardonic sense of humor to the sometimes questionable ethics of law and banking.

    - USA Today
  • [A] buoyant, mischievous thriller . . . Grisham writes in such an inventive spirit. . . . A treat.

    - Janet Maslin, The New York Times
  • “[A] buoyant, mischievous thriller…As in all of Grisham’s best books, the reader of The Rooster Bar gets good company, a vigorous runaround, and…a bit of a legal education.”

    - New York Times
  • “Grisham targets sky-high student debt in an intriguing thriller that parallels real-life events.”

    - BookPage
  • “The novel has some strikingly well-drawn characters and a plot that edges tantalizingly close to a full-on caper story, but it also boasts some shrewd commentary on the scourge of fraudulent for-profit universities and the disastrous impact they can have on people’s lives. It feels like this is a subject close to Grisham’s heart, and he makes the most of it…supported by solid storytelling.”
