 John Grisham - The Rainmaker

–          John Grisham (February 8, 1955)

–          John Grisham’s The Rainmaker

Author of a number of Best seller which were also turned into Blockbuster movies, in The Rainmaker, Grisham returns to the courtroom 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 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 his 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.

  1. I wanted to close myy eyes and let the world fade to black.

    Instead, they eagerly pointed at the mediocre-looking food
    steaming under the heating lamps, instructing the dining staff as to which item too pile onto their plates.
    It is a durable tree, quite majestic in appearance.
