The Street Lawyer




AN AMERICAN CLASSIC FROM THE NO.1 BESTSELLING MASTER THRILLER WRITER

_______________________________________
Michael Brock is a man in the fast lane.

He's a rising star at Drake & Sweeney, a giant Washington law firm. No time to waste, no time to toss a few coins to beggars. No time for a conscience.

Until the day a man takes several lawyers hostage at his firm, shouting about an eviction. Police snipers shoot the hostage taker dead, but Brock feels compelled to investigate.

What he discovers is a shocking violation of the rights of the homeless on the city streets, with Drake & Sweeney up to its neck in it, and suddenly his conscience begins to stir. But to do the right thing, he might have to steal his own firm's secrets...

Praise for The Street Lawyer

Compelling... Grisham is more adept at getting the reader to turn the page than almost any writer working today.

Daily Mail

Fluent and fascinating. Few writers have so much to say, the skills to make reading what they say an irresistible pleasure -- and the clout to be able to say it to an audience of millions.

Independent

No one does it better than Grisham. This latest novel is as unputdownable as ever.
