Summary: On the right side of the law. Sort of.
Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. He works out of a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, fine leather chairs, a hidden gun compartment, and a heavily armed driver. He has no firm, no partners, no associates, and only one employee: his driver, who’s also his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddy. He lives alone in a small but extremely safe penthouse apartment, and his primary piece of furniture is a vintage pool table. He drinks small-batch bourbon and carries a gun.
Sebastian defends people other lawyers won’t go near: a drug-addled, tattooed kid rumored to be in a satanic cult, who is accused of molesting and murdering two little girls; a vicious crime lord on death row; a homeowner arrested for shooting at a SWAT team that mistakenly invaded his house. Why these clients? Because he believes everyone is entitled to a fair trial, even if he, Sebastian, has to cheat to secure one. He hates injustice and doesn’t like insurance companies, banks, or big corporations; he distrusts all levels of government and laughs at the justice system’s notions of ethical behavior.
Sebastian Rudd is one of John Grisham’s most colorful, outrageous, and vividly drawn characters yet. Gritty, witty, and impossible to put down, Rogue Lawyer showcases the master of the legal thriller at his very best…Read more.

John Grisham: Rogue Lawyer Audio Book Summary
Rogue Lawyer is one of the most recent books by acclaimed author of legal thrillers John Grisham. Grisham is a former lawyer whose works have sold more than 250 million copies worldwide publishing one book per year from 1989 to 2016.
The protagonist Sebastian Rudd is a lawyer who does not fear to represent customers with implausible matters, some of them are Gardy, an innocent man of the charge of murder of a pair of girls; Link, a mobster who has murdered a judge; Tadeo, a fighter who got into trouble during a fight by inadvertently hitting the referee.
The main character, works in the streets, where the action takes place, does not have an office, does not belong to any legal firm, works outside a van with his partner who is also a driver and bodyguard. The partner’s mother, who was previously a client of Rudd; Is a receptionist for the duo.
Rudd is only concerned about doing justice for his clients, he defends the right of every person to be defended, and for this, he fights against corruption and incompetence of the institutions (judges, police, etc.)
Sebastian, has a son and an ex-wife who fights total custody and property, is not the best father in the world, is more busy winning cases, which is something he does often, and when he does, he experiences the feeling of Be doing things right. Rudd is a different lawyer, not looking for fortune or prestige, looking for justice in his own twisted way.
It is a book in which the characters are well constructed and developed, the interactions between them are interesting, however, it lacks strength to the argument, or perhaps it is the lack of central argument that makes the narrative feel sometimes flat.
The book is more a series of narratives that interconnect, each case has the particularity of capturing the attention of the reader, however, as a whole, fails to finish convincing the critic.
It is a work that can easily be read as if it were independent stories, but they share the same main character, so it can be an entertaining reading if you read one story per day.
