John Grisham is a writer of pacy legal thrillers, often with a serious edge, and a range of authors have included his books as among their favourites.
Grisham shot to international fame after he published his second book, The Firm, in 1991. For many, it remains his best book. According to fellow bestselling author, Jeffrey Archer: “If you’ve never read John Grisham, The Firm is the one to start on, because his genius is that he was a professional lawyer as a young man, after coming down from university.”
Grisham is a prolific writer, sometimes producing two books in one year. All his books, with a focus on his most recent, can be found here.
