About the Author

Bio

Author Picture

John Grisham

Long before his name became synonymous with the modern legal thriller, he was working 60-70 hours a week at a small Southaven, Mississippi law practice, squeezing in time before going to the office and during courtroom recesses to work on his hobby -- writing his first novel.

Since first publishing A Time to Kill in 1988, Grisham has written one novel a year and all of them have become bestsellers, leading Publishers Weekly to declare him "the bestselling novelist of the 90s'

Grisham lives with his wife Renee and their two children Ty and Shea. The family splits their time between their Victorian home on a farm in Mississippi and a plantation near Charlottesville, VA.

Every Jury has a leader, and the verdict belongs to him. In Biloxi Mississippi. A landmark trial with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake begins routinely, then swerves mysteriously off course. The Jury is behaving strangely, and at least one juror is convinced he's being watched. Soon they have been sequestered. Then a tip from an anonymous young woman suggests she is able to predict the juror's increasingly odd behaviour. Is the jury somehow being manipulated, or even controlled? If so, by whom? And, more importantly, why? The Runaway Jury will once more confirm John Grisham's position as the most popular fiction writer of the decade. It is a book of relentless pace and excitement, combining the author's unparalleled knowledge of the law and lawyers and the way trials work with a beguiling mystery which will keep the reader guessing right to the last page.
