John Grisham's five novels -- A Time To Kill, The Firm, The Pelican Brief, The Client, and The Chamber -- have been number one best-sellers, and have a combined total of 47 million copies in print. Now, inThe Rainmaker, Grisham returns to the courtroom for the first time since A Time To Kill, and weaves a riveting tale of legal intrigue and corporate greed. Combining suspense, narrative momentum, and humor as only John Grisham can, this is another spellbinding read from the most popular author of our time. Grisham's sixth spellbinding novel of legal intrigue and corporate greed displays all of the intricate plotting, fast-paced action, humor, and suspense that have made him the most popular author of our time. In his first courtroom thriller since A Time To Kill, John Grisham tells the story of a young man barely out of law school who finds himself taking on one of the most powerful, corrupt, and ruthless companies in America -- and exposing a complex, multibillion-dollar insurance scam. In hs final semester of law school Rudy Baylor is required to provide free legal advice to a group of senior citizens, and it is there that he meets his first "clients," Dot and Buddy Black. Their son, Donny Ray, is dying of leukemia, and their insurance company has flatly refused to pay for his medical treatments. While Rudy is at first skeptical, he soon realizes that the Blacks really have been shockingly mistreated by the huge company, and that he just may have stumbled upon one of the largest insurance frauds anyone's ever seen -- and one of the most lucrative and important cases in the history of civil litigation. The problem is, Rudy's flat broke, has no job, hasn't even passed the bar, and is about to go head-to-head with one of the best defense attorneys -- and powerful industries -- in America.Learn More

An excellent courtroom drama
Skip the movie, get the book—it’s so much better! Rudy Baylor is a young struggling lawyer who suddenly finds himself smack in the middle of a major lawsuit against some heavy hitters. Obviously he lacks the experience and intimidation factor to take on such a team, but he doesn’t back down. He’s a winning protagonist, though my favorite character in this book is the judge. He’ll have none of the corporate lawyers’ BS, and his rulings against them help tip back the scales so they’re not so completely out of Rudy’s favor. Still, Rudy winds up even more in over his head when he decides to help a young battered wife escape her abusive husband.
This is a fun, gripping story, one of my favorite Grisham novels.
