Journal Entry 1 by Crossingguardpa from Calgary, Alberta Canada on Friday, November 24, 2017
On the right side of the law. Sort of.
 
Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. He works out of a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, fine leather chairs, a hidden gun compartment, and a heavily armed driver. He has no firm, no partners, no associates, and only one employee, his driver, who’s also his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddy. He lives alone in a small but extremely safe penthouse apartment, and his primary piece of furniture is a vintage pool table. He drinks small-batch bourbon and carries a gun.
 
Sebastian defends people other lawyers won’t go near: a drug-addled, tattooed kid rumored to be in a satanic cult, who is accused of molesting and murdering two little girls; a vicious crime lord on death row; a homeowner arrested for shooting at a SWAT team that mistakenly invaded his house.  Why these clients? Because he believes everyone is entitled to a fair trial, even if he, Sebastian, has to cheat to secure one. He hates injustice, doesn’t like insurance companies, banks, or big corporations; he distrusts all levels of government and laughs at the justice system’s notions of ethical behavior.
 
Sebastian Rudd is one of John Grisham’s most colorful, outrageous, and vividly drawn characters yet. Gritty, witty, and impossible to put down, Rogue Lawyer showcases the master of the legal thriller at his very best.

Journal Entry 4 by crossingguardma at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Wednesday, March 14, 2018
This was a deviation from Grisham’s typical lawyer books. It was sort of several separate stories that I thought would come together in the end but don’t really.

None the less I enjoyed the stories. It was frustrating on the stupidity of some and very sad the treatment of others.

Journal Entry 8 by MoomaOma at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Monday, May 20, 2019
I quite enjoyed this book which was surprising as it was like a bunch of short stories but in this book it was a series of different cases. What made it different then short stories was there was some carry over from case to case.
