More About The Testament by John Grisham
 
 
 
Overview
Troy Phelan is a self-made billionaire, one of the richest men in the United States. He is also eccentric, reclusive, confined to a wheelchair, and looking for a way to die. His heirs, to no one's surprise--especially Troy's--are circling like vultures.

Nate O'Riley is a high-octane Washington litigator who's lived too hard, too fast, for too long. His second marriage in a shambles, and he is emerging from his fourth stay in rehab armed with little more than his fragile sobriety, good intentions, and resilient sense of humor. Returning to the real world is always difficult, but this time it's going to be murder.

Rachel Lane is a young woman who chose to give her life to God, who walked away from the modern world with all its strivings and trappings and encumbrances, and went to live and work with a primitive tribe of Indians in the deepest jungles of Brazil.

In a story that mixes legal suspense with a remarkable adventure, their lives are forever altered by the startling secret of The Testament.

OK, so we feel a little bit like carnies on a midway, but this is no freak show, we assure you. It's the standard fare from Grisham, who delivers yet another novel of nefarious, illegal doings. There's just no need for advance publicity at this stage of Grisham's career. There are no advance reader's copies. Even a cover is hard to come by, but come by a cover we did. So we offer you here the first hint of what Mr. Legal Thriller is up to in his latest bestseller. Yeah, it's the book's flap copy, but isn't that enough?
