John Grisham's latest legal thriller focuses on a young female protagonist, a small Virginia town, and Big Coal. After her promising Wall Street career had been snuffed out by the Great Recession, Samantha Kofer had headed south, hoping than an unpaid one-year legal aid internship would be her ticket back. She learns quickly that those twelve months will not be spent treading water. Instead, she is tossed almost immediately into daunting courtroom battles, arousing the suspicions and then the threats of locals who view her as a big-city intruder. A scintillating, cinematic page-turner that only Grisham could have written.
