Featuring characters from the bestselling Rogue Lawyer, this is a brilliantly entertaining short story from master of the legal thriller John Grisham.

Discover how Rogue Lawyer's Sebastian Rudd meets his partner and bodyguard in this thrilling short story, by master of the legal thriller John Grisham.

Ten years out of law school, and running an office out of what used to be a seedy bar, Sebastian Rudd is beginning to make a name for himself - and learning that in order to get justice, you often have to cheat.

When he chooses to represent Thomas Cardell, he's about to make even more enemies.

At 33 years old, and with no money and a son to care for, Thomas Cardell is forced to become a drugs mule. But on his first night in the game, he's ruthlessly shot at by an undercover cop, and his only choice is to shoot back in self-defence. When the cop is killed it's Cardell's word against the other police officer on the scene, and proving Cardell innocent will be far from simple.

But who ever said getting justice was easy?

Featuring the characters from ROGUE LAWYER, and full of the wit and fast-paced action that makes ROGUE LAWYER so irresistibly entertaining, PARTNERS is another classic Grisham story.

The best thriller writer alive

John Grisham

One day at the Dessoto County courthouse, John Grisham overheard the harrowing testimony of a twelve-year-old rape victim and was inspired to start a novel exploring what would have happened if the girl's father had murdered her assailants. Getting up at 5 a.m. every day to get in several hours of writing time before heading off to work, Grisham spent three years on A Time to Kill and finished it in 1987. Initially rejected by many publishers, it was eventually bought by Wynwood press, who gave it a modest 5,000 copy printing and published it in June 1988.

That might have put an end to Grisham's hobby. However, he had already begun his next book, and it would quickly turn that hobby into a new full-time career - and spark one of publishing's greatest success stories. The day after Grisham completed A Time to Kill, he began work on another novel, the story of a hotshot young attorney lured to an apparently perfect law firm that was not what it appeared. When he sold the film rights to The Firm to Paramount Pictures for $600,000, Grisham suddenly became a hot property among publishers, and book rights were bought by Doubleday. Spending 47 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list, The Firm became the bestselling novel of 1991.

Since first publishing A Time to Kill in 1988, Grisham has written one novel a year and all of them have become international bestsellers. There are currently over 225 million John Grisham books in print worldwide, which have been translated into 29 languages. Nine of his novels have been turned into films (The Firm, The Pelican Brief, The Client, A Time to Kill, The Rainmaker, The Chamber, A Painted House, The Runaway Jury, and Skipping Christmas), as was an original screenplay, The Gingerbread Man. The Innocent Man (2006) marked his first foray into non-fiction.
