À propos

NO. 1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER A high-stakes thrill ride through the darkest corners of Florida, from the author hailed as the best thriller writer alive by Ken Follett We expect our judges to be honest and wise. Their integrity is the bedrock of the entire judicial system. We trust them to ensure fair trials, to protect the rights of all litigants, to punish those who do wrong, and to oversee the flow of justice. But what happens when a judge bends the law or takes a bribe? Lacy Stoltz is an investigator for the Florida Board on Judicial Conduct. It is her job to respond to complaints dealing with judicial misconduct. After nine years with the Board, she knows that most problems are caused by incompetence, not corruption. But a corruption case eventually crosses her desk. A previously disbarred lawyer is back in business, and he claims to know of a Florida judge who has stolen more money than all other crooked judges combined. And not just crooked judges in Florida. All judges, from all states, and throughout United States history. And now he wants to put a stop to it. His only client is a person who knows the truth and wants to blow the whistle and collect millions under Florida law. When the case is assigned to Lacy, she immediately suspects that this one could be dangerous. Dangerous is one thing. Deadly is something else.

John Grisham

Né dans l'Arkansas le 8 février 1955, marié et père de deux enfants, John Grisham a commencé sa carrière comme avocat. Passionné d'écriture, il écrivait des romans à ses heures perdues. Son premier roman, "Non coupable" ("A Time to kill"), fut publié par un petit éditeur en 1989. Avec "La Firme", paru en 1991 et vendu à des millions d'exemplaires, il rencontra son premier grand succès. Depuis, "L'Affaire Pélican", "Le Maître du Jeu", "Le Client", "L'Associé", "Le Testament", "L'Engrenage"... ont déclenché le même enthousiasme auprès d'un nombre de lecteurs de plus en plus impressionnant. Mis en place à 2,8 millions d'exemplaires, chacun de ses livres est un véritable événement : à New York, on fait la queue devant les librairies pour se les procurer. Mais cela n'empêche pas l'auteur le plus lu dans le monde de vivre simplement et de déjouer les pièges de la célébrité.
