About the Author

John Grisham is the author of forty-seven consecutive #1 bestsellers, which have been translated into nearly fifty languages. His recent books include The Judge's List, Sooley, and his third Jake Brigance novel, A Time for Mercy, which is being developed by HBO as a limited series.

Grisham is a two-time winner of the Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction and was honored with the Library of Congress Creative Achievement Award for Fiction.

When he's not writing, Grisham serves on the board of directors of the Innocence Project and of Centurion Ministries, two national organizations dedicated to exonerating those who have been wrongfully convicted. Much of his fiction explores deep-seated problems in our criminal justice system.

John lives on a farm in central Virginia.

Reviews

"The Confession is the kind of grab-a-reader-by-the-shoulders suspense story that demands to be inhaled as quickly as possible. But it's also a superb work of social criticism in the literary troublemaker tradition of Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle....Brilliant"--Washington Post

"Grisham is the master of the legal thriller."--USA Today


NO ONE KEEPS YOU IN SUSPENSE LIKE AMERICA'S FAVORITE STORYTELLER

"The secrets of Grisham's success are no secret at all. There are two of them: his pacing, which ranges from fast to breakneck, and his Theme--little guy takes on big conspiracy with the little guy getting the win in the end." --Time magazine

"The law, by its nature, creates drama, and a new Grisham promises us an inside look at the dirty machineries of process and power, with plenty of entertainment" --Los Angeles Times

"With every new book I appreciate John Grisham a little more, for his feisty critiques of the legal system, his compassion for the underdog, and his willingness to strike out in new directions." --Entertainment Weekly

"John Grisham is about as good a storyteller as we've got in the United States these days." --The New York Times Book Review

"Grisham is a marvelous storyteller who works readers the way a good trial lawyer works a jury." --Philadelphia Inquirer

"A mighty narrative talent and an unerring eye for hot-button issues." --Chicago Sun-Times

"A legal literary legend." --USA Today
