Download John Grisham - The Brethren PDF eBookFirst published in 2000, The Brethren is considered one of the best books written by famous American legal thriller writer John Grisham. In some aspects and levels, this legal thriller novel has become Grisham’s most daring book. The story in the novel evolves from two different subplots. In the first subplot, readers will follow the existence of three imprisoned ex-judges, who are frustrated since they no longer hold power and influence, and then decide to concoct an elaborate blackmail scheme that preys on rich, closeted gay men. The other story will bring readers trace the rise of Aaron Lake, a presidential candidate and a CIA puppet essentially created to fulfill the plans of CIA director Teddy Maynard for restoring the power of his under-pressure agency.
*Preview of John Grisham's The Brethren*
The novel does feature three antiheroes of a sort, the brethren of the title, judges serving time in a federal prison in Florida for white-collar offenses. They're a hard bunch to root for, though, as their main activity behind bars is running a blackmail scheme in which they bait, hook and squeeze wealthy, closeted gay men through a magazine ad supposedly placed by "Ricky," a young incarcerated gay looking for companionship. Then there's the two-bit alcoholic attorney who's abetting them by running their mail and depositing their dirty profits in an overseas bank. Scarcely more appealing is the big fish the trio snare, Congressman Anthony Lake, who meanwhile is busy selling his lifelong integrity when the director of the CIA offers to lever him into the White House in exchange for a doubling of federal defense spending upon Lake's inauguration.
The expertly orchestrated and very complex plot follows these evildoers through their illicit enterprises, devoting considerable attention to the CIA's staging of Lake's presidential campaign and even more to that agency's potentially lethal pursuit of the brethren once it learns that the three are threatening to out-candidate Lake.
