It’s summer in Memphis. The sweat is sticking to Rudy Baylor’s shirt and creditors are nipping at his heels. Once he had aspirations of breezing through law school and punching his ticket to the good life. Now he doesn’t have a job or a prayer … except for one: an insurance dispute that leaves a family devastated and opens the door for a lawsuit, if Rudy can find a way to file it.

By the time Rudy gets to court, a heavyweight corporate defense team is there to meet him. And suddenly he’s in over his head, plunged into a nightmare of lies and legal maneuverings. A case that started small is exploding into a thunderous million-dollar war of nerves, skill, and outright violence—a fight that could cost one young lawyer his life, or turn him into the biggest rainmaker in the land …

Bestselling author John Grisham returns to the courtroom for the first time since A Time to Kill to weave this riveting tale of legal intrigue and corporate greed. Combining suspense, narrative momentum, and humor as only John Grisham can, The Rainmaker provides another spellbinding, thrill-a-minute read.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Patty Cook | 2/19/2014

    " OH I COULD NOT THIS BOOK DOWN.. A real page turner!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Wesley | 2/6/2014

    " I feel this was one of the better books Grisham has ever written. Naturally there is enough legality to suffice any of his readers. There was also a serious mix of heart I feel. You could tell that a real writer would loved to write and was a writer first and a law man 2nd. Not as if you were trying to squeeze the law into a book but a book had been written with law to help balance the story. This is also one of the better movies. Sure it's predictable in some parts. This kind of thing happens more often than not though. A definite must read out of the Grisham books. "
