On the right side of the law. Sort of.   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. Download and start listening now!

    " Forget all the typical John Grisham lawyer books. Sebastian Rudd is no Jake Brigance or even Lucian Wilbanks (although he might be a combination of both lawyers). He’s more like Connelly’s Lincoln Lawyer than any other legal character I’ve read or listened to. He’s just a lawyer trying to work within the rules as much as possible, and stay safe when he can’t work within them. Grisham takes us on a wild ride with Sebastian, and does not disappoint the reader/listener. "

    " Not one of Grisham's best, but still a very fun listen. He does a fairly good job at character development and you're able to identify/connect with most of the characters, although at times the main character seems to be unpredictable with his logic. Overall, the story moves along and keeps you connected with the action. I would definitely recommend this to others. "
