#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • John Grisham has a new hero ... and she’s full of surprises.
The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer’s career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track—until the recession hits and she is downsized, furloughed, and escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, all for a slim chance of getting rehired.
In a matter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about. Samantha’s new job takes her into the murky and dangerous world of coal mining, where laws are often broken, communities are divided, and the land itself is under attack. But some of the locals aren’t so thrilled to have a big-city lawyer in town, and within weeks Samantha is engulfed in litigation that turns deadly. Because like most small towns, Brady harbors big secrets that some will kill to conceal.

  • Excellent

    By Kozan11
    Excellent read from beginning to end. By the end I couldn’t stop reading until I finished the book. You feel you really know the characters and hope and cheer for the good guys and want the bad guys to go down.
  • Meh

    By Bain.Sidhe
    I’ve been a big fan of Grisham’s work for decades, but this one disappointed me. The characters seemed more like annoying stereotypes than real people, and the plot was relatively predictable.
  • Too much wokeness

    By FH 2561
    Too much wokeness, which is any.
  • This was not Mr. Grisham’s best

    By like JG
    As I have read several of Mr. Grisham’s including his first originals…this one in my opinion was a disappointment…
  • Feels Unfinished

    By PepitoFayuca
    The story starts slow and picks up half way through the book, but suddenly ends with many unresolved cases. Wish it would have been longer.
  • Good book
