Money can buy you anything. Even a verdict…

In a crowded courtroom in Mississippi, a jury returns a shocking guilty verdict against a chemical company. Accused of dumping toxic waste into a small town’s water supply, causing the worst “cancer cluster” in history, the company knows it’s in trouble. Their only avenue is to appeal to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will either approve the verdict or reverse it.

But the company’s owner, Carl Trudeau, isn’t willing to let justice be done. Instead, he decides to try to purchase a seat on the Court. Through an intricate web of conspiracy and deceit, his political operatives recruit a young, unsuspecting candidate. They finance him, manipulate him, market him, and mould him into a potential Supreme Court justice.

Their Supreme Court justice.

And unless their scheme is exposed, the polluters will make a clean escape…

Review
“Recalling Dickens and other 19th century fiction…
Riveting.” (
Sunday Times)

“What he does so well is to people his plots with clearly defined characters… He makes it riveting.” (
Mirror)


A tense, thoughtful, absorbing read.” (
The Times)

“As usual Grisham is
fantastically skilful at delineating the procedural ins and outs of the legal and business worlds in such a way that, as the reader, you feel rather clever yourself.” (
Daily Express)

“Reads both like an inspirational debut and a
brilliant career masterpiece… Technically the book is a tour de force, the characters perfectly balanced and precisely drawn, the forward-thrusting chapters sculpted in size and rhythm…
The Appeal is a blatant page turner but I guarantee you will hate reaching the end.” (
Sunday Express)
