Download John Grisham - The Runaway Jury PDF eBookThe Runaway Jury is a suspenseful legal thriller novel first published in 1996. To this day, it is considered as one of the best works of John Grisham. The book displays the flexibility and creativity of Grisham in building something around a genre that, for most, is relatively restrictive.
The story in The Runaway Jury captures the corruption and depravity in the legal system. It follows Wendall Rohr and a team of successful lawyers who have filed suit on behalf of plaintiff Celeste Wood, a widow who has lost her husband because of lung cancer. The trial is scheduled to be conducted in a city in Mississippi. This is a state known of having favorable tort laws and sympathetic juries. The trial will call big tobacco company Pynex, which is the defendant. Yet, even before the jury has been sworn in, Nicholas Easter, a stealth juror, starts to quietly connive behind the scenes. Along all the actions “behind” the courtroom, Grisham takes readers to view the conflicts from different perspectives, while slowly presents the intertwined web, before finally reveals the truth, which is quite surprising.

They are at the center of a multimillion dollar legal hurricane: twelve men and women who have been investigated, watched, manipulated, and harassed by high-priced lawyers and consultants who will stop at nothing to secure a verdict.
