the runaway jury

When justice is for sale, every jury has a price

In Biloxi, Mississippi, a landmark trial begins. There are hundreds of millions of dollars at stake and soon it swerves mysteriously off course. The jury is behaving strangely, and at least one juror is convinced he's being watched. Soon they have to be sequestered. Then a tip from an anonymous young woman suggests she is able to predict the jurors' increasingly odd behaviour.

Is the jury somehow being manipulated, or even controlled? If so, by whom? And, more importantly, why?

This is without a doubt my favourite of the Grisham novels. I was mesmorised from beginning to end. The concept of engineering a trial is not a new one, but this is done in a way where reader is left in doubt of how the trial will evolve and what the eventual outcome will be. The main characters of Fitch, Nick & Marlee are fabulous, and the interplay between Fitch and Nick is excellent. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what would happen and how the trial would proceed.

The Runaway Jury is an example of John Grisham at his finest. The book follows the story of a large civil case against a tabacco company which starts off as expected. However, it becomes clear that the jury are acting strangely, especially to those doing their best to see that their client wins - at whatever cost. The story is full of suspense and surprises, the best of which, in true Grisham style, is saved until last. Try it -you won't be disappointed.

I really enjoyed this book. It was the usual top quality that you expect from Grisham. The plot was completely original and to this day it is one of my favourite books. I would definitely recommened this book to anyone who likes a fast moving, adventurous and gripping book.
