Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • 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.

"Another great book from John Grisham, maybe not one of the best though! Good plot with not too many characters to confuse the reader as many other authors do. I like that a lot if not most of his books revolve around the VA and MD areas where I have lived for most of my life. Of course, looking forward to the next book."

— Martin (5 out of 5 stars)

Quotes

  • “[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
  • “Never shy about shedding light on injustice and unethical behavior, John Grisham sinks his teeth into a juicy target in his latest novel: privately owned, for-profit law schools…For the finale, Grisham serves up a pitch-perfect cocktail of escapism and derring-do that will leave readers crowing for more.”

    — Christian Science Monitor
  • “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.”

    — Booklist
  • [A] buoyant, mischievous thriller . . . Grisham writes in such an inventive spirit. . . . A treat.

    — Janet Maslin, The New York Times
  • 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] smartly told tale . . . gratifying and all-too-real.

    — The Washington Post

Awards

  • #1 New York Times bestseller
  • BookPage Top Pick for November
  • A Library Journal Editor’s Pick of Most Borrowed Bestsellers

    " It takes awhile to get into the story. The flow of getting to know the characters and the plot line was ragged. The book was okay, but Grisham has produced much better work. "
