The jury was ready. (from the first line)
From the Publisher:
When a judge returns a verdict against a chemical company accused of dumping toxic waste in a small Mississippi town, the company's billionaire owner seeks to influence the appeal process by using his money to "buy" a seat on the state Supreme Court.
Annotation:
The master of the courtroom thriller crafts another fast-paced tale of corruption and intrigue within the American legal system. When a major chemical company is convicted of poisoning a community by dumping waste into the water supply, it faces absolute ruin. It's only hope is that the Supreme Court will hear their appeal, and throw out the guilty verdict. The owner of the company crafts a plan to purchase a seat on the Court, and he begins grooming an ambitious young politician, who is oblivious to his venal scheme. Grisham is the bestselling author of A TIME TO KILL and THE FIRM.
Author Bio
John Grisham
John Grisham woke up at 5:00 every morning for three years to complete his first novel, A TIME TO KILL. Working as a lawyer and a member of Mississippi's state legislature, Grisham published his debut thriller with a small and somewhat unknown publisher, receiving only local readership in his home state. He finally burst on to the national scene with his second novel, THE FIRM, a legal thriller that sold millions of copies and stayed on the New York Times best-seller list for 47 weeks. Shortly afterward, Grisham moved to Oxford, Mississippi, where he began working on a series of new legal thrillers, including THE PELICAN BRIEF and THE CLIENT, all of which became bestsellers and were subsequently made into successful films. Having graduated from the University of Mississippi in Oxford with a law degree in 1981, Grisham went on to base his popular thrillers on his experience as a specialist in criminal defense. His once-unknown debut, A TIME TO KILL, was made into a major motion picture in 1996.

Praise

"THE APPEAL is John Grisham's handy primer on a timely subject: how to rig an election. Blow by blow, this not-very-fictitious-sounding novel depicts the tactics by which political candidates either can be propelled or ambushed and their campaigns can be subverted.... Building a remarkable degree of suspense into the all too familiar ploys described here, Mr. Grisham delivers his savviest book in years." - Janet Maslin 01/28/2008
