#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.

    One of John Grisham’s very best novels. It held my interest throughout the entire book. Couldn’t put it down. The narration was awesome.

    I wasn't a fan of the narration at first; however, after a while the narrator grew on me. The book itself was very interesting: though a work of fiction, it seemed quite plausible. It was a good story.

    I? could not stop listening Grisham exposes the trap of unethical law schools for profit. Beware. Just as importantly, we learn of gut wrenching plight of immigrant families.

    Like other reviewers..not Grisham's best work. But, very easy to listen to. Make travel time pass buy. Limited characters so easy to follow. The whole "Law school/loans was interesting. Glad I listened...glad I didn't waste time reading!
