The Legacy of Courtroom Dramas
John Grisham is popularly known for his novels that revolve around court-room dramas, lawyers, the big players and their black money. With novels such as The Firm which was made into a major motion picture starring Tom Cruise, Grisham has set a benchmark for himself and he has kept raising the bar ever since with his novels like ‘The Summons’ and ‘The Pelican Brief’. Continuing this legacy of courtroom dramas, lawyers and their high-end clients, the author has written the ‘Rogue Lawyer’ which is one of his most recent and acclaimed works.
Every character in this book is very powerful in his and her shoes and Grisham has portrayed the character of Sebastian Rudd in an excellent manner. Equipping him with everything that anyone would ever want, the rogue lawyer has been portrayed as a desirable personality. In those regards, this novel draws some similarities with The King of Torts. The book mostly revolves around this character of Rudd and it is him around whom the whole story has been woven.
This book also has a great storyline since it revolves around a character that seems to be walking the fine line between a protagonist and an antagonist. This is what keeps the readers on the edge of their seats with an ever dangling uncertainty of what would happen next. This is why Rogue Lawyer has been termed as one of the finest works of John Grisham by many of his readers and critics.
