Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham
Sebastian Rudd takes the cases that no-.one else wants :the drunk-addled punk accused of murdering two little girls: a crime lord on death row: a homeowner who shot at a SWAT team.
But the Arch Swanger case may be the one that breaks him.
Swanger is prime suspect in the abduction and presumed murder of 21-year-old Jiliana Kemp. When Swanger asks Sebastian to represent him, he lets Sebastian in on a terrible secret – one that will threaten everything Sebastian holds dear.
