Rogue lawyer; John Grisham
Publication year: 2015
Sebastian Rudd takes the cases no one else wants to take: the drug-addled punk accused of murdering two little girls; a crime lord on death row; a homeowner accused of shooting at a SWAT team. Rudd believes that every person accused of a crime is entitled to a fair trial - even if he has to cheat to get one. He antagonises people from both sides of the law: his last office was fire-bombed, either by drug dealers or cops. He doesn't know or care which. But things are about to get even more complicated. Carl Swagger is the prime suspect in the abduction and presumed murder of 21-year-old Jillian Kemp, the daughter of the assistant chief of police. When Swagger asks Sebastian to represent him, he lets Sebastian in on a terrible secret ... one that will threaten everything he holds dear.
