The Rooster Bar

Front Cover
Doubleday, 2017 - Fiction - 368 pages
#1 New York Times bestselling author 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.

I LOVE THIS GUY'S BOOKS!! I couldn't stop reading! Every time some new scheme popped up, I kept wondering how the hell will they get through this one! Excellent with just a smattering of court-room scenes, but so entertaining! Mark, Todd, and Zola are awesome heroes. Read full review

Students at a suspect law college discover financial connections between the banks and the college that leads them to take a back door to the legal world. A promising premise for novel, but the character development and plot just didn't hold together. Read full review
