#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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] buoyant, mischievous thriller…As in all of Grisham’s best books, the reader of The Rooster Bar gets good company, a vigorous runaround, and…a bit of a legal education.” New York Times
Satisfying . . . Grisham [is] at his best when he brings his sardonic sense of humor to the sometimes questionable ethics of law and banking. USA Today
[A] smartly told tale . . . gratifying and all-too-real. Washington Post
“Never shy about shedding light on injustice and unethical behavior, John Grisham sinks his teeth into a juicy target in his latest novel: privately owned, for-profit law schools…For the finale, Grisham serves up a pitch-perfect cocktail of escapism and derring-do that will leave readers crowing for more.” Christian Science Monitor
“Grisham targets sky-high student debt in an intriguing thriller that parallels real-life events.” BookPage
“The novel has some strikingly well-drawn characters and a plot that edges tantalizingly close to a full-on caper story, but it also boasts some shrewd commentary on the scourge of fraudulent for-profit universities and the disastrous impact they can have on people’s lives. It feels like this is a subject close to Grisham’s heart, and he makes the most of it…supported by solid storytelling.” Booklist
