And they're making him play. Kyle McAvoy is one of the outstanding legal students of his generation: he's good-looking, has a brilliant mind, and a glittering future is ahead of him.

He'll be a spy inside it, passing on the secrets of a trial that could be worth billions of dollars to the victor. And as Kyle is drawn ever deeper into the criminal web, he wonders if he'll ever get out alive... _______________________________________ 'A master at the art of deft characterisation and the skilful delivery of hair-raising crescendos' – Irish Independent 'John Grisham is the master of legal fiction' – Jodi Picoult 'The best thriller writer alive' – Ken Follett ' John Grisham has perfected the art of cooking up convincing, fast-paced thrillers' – Telegraph 'Grisham is a superb, instinctive storyteller' – The Times 'Grisham's storytelling genius reminds us that when it comes to legal drama, the master is in a league of his own.' – Daily Record 'Masterful – when Grisham gets in the courtroom he lets rip, drawing scenes so real they're not just alive, they're pulsating' – Mirror 'A giant of the thriller genre' – TimeOut
