Product Overview

Troy Phelan is a self-made billionaire, one of the richest men in the United States. He is also confined to eccentric, reclusive, confined to a wheelchair, and looking for a way to die. His heirs, to no one's surprise are circling like vultures. Nate O'Riley is a high-octane Washington lawyer who's lived too hard, too fast, for too long. His second marriage in a shambles, he is emerging from his fourth stay in rehab armed with little more than his fragile sobriety, good intentions, and resilient sense of humor. Returning to the real world is always difficult, but this time it's going to be murder! Rachel Lane is a young woman who chose to give her life to God, who walked away from the modern world & went to live and work with primitive tribes of Indians in the deepest jungles of Brazil. In a story that mixes legal suspense with remarkable adventure, their lives are forever altered by the startling secret of The Testament.

Author Info
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.
"Grisham is completely unpretentious: down-to-earth, unflappable, uncomplicated, measured. he sometimes achieves a wonderfully understated, businesslike tone....This is good stuff."
"John Grisham's 10th novel lacks both courtroom and sustained drama, but it's nevertheless entertaining."
From the Publisher
Annotation Nate O'Riley, a high-powered D.C. lawyer and recovering alcoholic, must fight both a morally corrupt legal system and his own recurring addiction to find Rachel Lane, a young woman working as doctor deep in the Brazilian wetlands. Rachel has inherited a multi-billion-dollar fortune, but with her other siblings clamoring for a piece of the pie, she unknowingly needs Nate's help to fend them off. But Nate's journey to Brazil becomes a greater, more dangerous adventure than he expected, eventually proving that he needs her help much more than she needs his. An independent, self-assured woman, Rachel opens Nate's eyes to a world he had never known: a world devoid of corruption, money and liquor, and instead, filled with faith and spirituality. A Publishers Weekly best-seller for 31 weeks, THE TESTAMENT was the magazine's longest-running fiction hardcover best-seller in 1999.
Editors Note An eccentric, reclusive billionaire looking for a way to die; a burnt-out Washington litigator just out of rehab for the fourth time; a woman who left the modern world to live and work in the jungles of Brazil. In a remarkable mix of legal suspense and high adventure, they are all brought together by the startling secret of "The Testament".
