Book recommendation: ‘The Litigators’ by John Grisham

‘Grisham is brilliantly comic in a novel that is full of zest and brimming with memorable characters and rich storylines… The legal storylines are typically rich in social detail and instances of entertaining rascality… Away from his usual southern turf, Grisham is turned by Chicago into a more Dickensian writer, soft-hearted at times but predominantly funny… a brilliant comic set piece’

(The Sunday Times)

The Litigators is up there with the best of Grisham’s 25 novels… vintage Grisham. [His] style is direct and the result is a superbly plotted legal thriller’

(Sunday Express)

The Litigators is a thrilling romp through the murky world of lawsuits and shysters – rich and poor. Packed with [Grisham’s] signature twists and turns, not to mention lots of double-dealing, be careful if you’re reading The Litigators on the bus, you may just miss your stop’

(Irish Independent)

‘[A] snappy, well-turned novel…Grisham brings his usual nuanced understanding of tort law and civil jurisprudence’

(Washington Post)
