From the Publisher:
Abandoning his aspirations about living the good life, novice Memphis lawyer Rudy Baylor fears he will lose everything in the face of a pivotal case that could cost him his life or turn him into the biggest rainmaker in the land as he stumbles upon a huge case of insurance fraud in which he must go head to head with one of the most powerful defense attorneys and industries in America.
Annotation:
Memphis lawyer Rudy Baylor thought his law degree would be his ticket to the good life. Now without a job, he pins his hopes on an insurance dispute that has left a family devastated and opened a door to a lawsuit. By the time he gets to court, a heavyweight defense team is assembled against him and Rudy is plunged into a maze of lies and legal maneuvering. The case that started small is exploding into a million-dollar war of nerves, skill, and physical violence--a fight that could cost Rudy his life, or make him the biggest rainmaker in the land.
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

Times Literary Supplement
"...what must be the first thrilling account of a civil trial to be written." 07/14/1995

Wall Street Journal
"[Rudy Baylor] is Mr. Grisham's most sympathetic hero and ['The Rainmaker' is his] most engrossing premise since his first runaway success, 'The Firm'." - Tom Nolan

Chicago Sun-Times
"A mighty narrative talent and an unerring eye for hot-button issues....in this new novel Grisham also reveals for the first time a surpassing knack for comedy."

Los Angeles Times
"Great fun to read...the complex plotting is Grisham's major accomplishment."

Entertainment Weekly
"Grisham's vivid minor characters and near-Dickensian zeal for mocking pomposity and privilege are apt to endear him to his many readers all over again."
