the client

An eleven-year-old has discovered a secret that not even an adult should know.

A US State Senator is dead, and Mark Sway is the only one who knows where the body is hidden. The FBI want him to tell them where it is, at whatever cost to Mark and his family.

The killer wants him silenced forever.

Reggie Love has been practising law for less than five years. Only she can save Mark from these twin threats. Together they must take on the might of the State and the wiles of a cold-blooded killer.

If you only read one legal thriller by John Grisham, I strongly urge you to choose The Client. It's a remarkable book that will reward your patience, pique your curiosity, and keep you guessing until almost the very end. Have a ball!

'The Client' is my favouraite Grisham novel. It is a gripping tale - this book is excruciating to put down! While two young boys are in the woods, a man who knows crucial information about a murder investigation tries to kill himself. The eldest boy Mark, tries to stop the suicide and suffers for it. He learns too much information and before long, he has the FBI hounding at his door whilst being attacked from the other side by the mafia. This is an inspiring and touching read, perfect for holiday or just entertainment. All Grisham's books are fantastic, but this is one of the best!
