The Rogue Lawyer






The Rogue Lawyer
By John Grisham

Doubleday Books
Review copy from Todd Dogherty



The Rogue Lawyer is not your typical John Grisham novel. The novel does grab you like all of his novels. But, doesn't grab you the same way he's other novels do. The novel opens up with the main character, Sebastian Rudd.  

He represents the worst of the worst in his cases. The book is like short stories about each of the client's he represents. They only connect because they are Rudd's clients. Other than that the stories are not interconnected. They are interesting stories on how he deals with his clients. In the center of it all is how he tries to get along with his ex-wife, and his daughter in the custody fight.

 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.

It wasn't a great read. It was a distraction with what life was dealing me during the week.
