Summary

“Un exuberante y malicioso thriller. . . Grisham escribe con un espíritu tan ingenioso. . . Una delicia de lectura”. – Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Mark, Todd y Zola decidieron estudiar Derecho en Washington para cambiar el mundo, para hacer de él un lugar mejor. Pero ahora que están en el tercer año de carrera, se dan cuenta de que han sido víctimas de un fraude: pidieron un cuantioso préstamo para estudiar en lo que ha terminado siendo una escuela de segunda categoría, centrada en ganar dinero, y tan mediocre que los alumnos rara vez aprueban el examen final. Investigando, descubren que el centro forma parte de una cadena operada por un fondo de dudosa reputación que, además, también dirige un banco especializado en préstamos estudiantiles. Sin embargo, no todo está perdido. Puede que haya una forma de librarse de la deuda, desenmascarar al banco, destapar el fraude y sacar provecho al mismo tiempo. Pero para que el plan tenga éxito, tendrán que abandonar la escuela sin graduarse, lo que sería una locura... O quizá no.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

#1 New York Times bestselling author John Grisham’s newest legal thriller takes you inside a law firm that’s on shaky ground.

“[A] buoyant, mischievous thriller . . . Grisham writes in such an inventive spirit. . . . A treat.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times
 
Mark, Todd, and Zola came to law school to change the world, to make it a better place. But now, as third-year students, these close friends realize they have been duped. They all borrowed heavily to attend a third-tier for-profit law school so mediocre that its graduates rarely pass the bar exam, let alone get good jobs. And when they learn that their school is one of a chain owned by a shady New York hedge-fund operator who also happens to own a bank specializing in student loans, the three know they have been caught up in The Great Law School Scam.
 
But maybe there’s a way out. Maybe there’s a way to escape their crushing debt, expose the bank and the scam, and make a few bucks in the process. But to do so, they would first have to quit school. And leaving law school a few short months before graduation would be completely crazy, right? Well, yes and no . . .
 
Pull up a stool, grab a cold one, and get ready to spend some time at The Rooster Bar.
 
“Satisfying . . . Grisham [is] at his best when he brings his sardonic sense of humor to the sometimes questionable ethics of law and banking.”—USA Today
 
“[A] smartly told tale . . . gratifying and all-too-real.”—The Washington Post
