How to Win Your Case In Traffic Court Without a Lawyer: Janet Trakin
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ? NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND NPR ? Featuring one of John Grisham´s most colorful, outrageous, and vividly drawn characters yet, Rogue Lawyer showcases the master of the legal thriller at his very best. On the right side of the law-sort of-Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. His office is a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, and fine leather chairs. He has no firm, no partners, and only one employee: his heavily armed driver, who also so happens to be his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddie. Sebastian drinks small-batch bourbon and carries a gun. He defends people other lawyers won´t go near: a drug-addled, tattooed kid rumored to be in a satanic cult; a vicious crime lord on death row; a homeowner arrested for shooting at a SWAT team that mistakenly invaded his house. Why these clients? Because Sebastian believes everyone is entitled to a fair trial-even if he has to bend the law to secure one. Praise for Rogue Lawyer ´´Terrific . . . inventive . . . Grisham still makes it look easy.´´-Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post ´´Sebastian Rudd is . . . a kind of twenty-first-century Philip Marlowe . . . with a blunt, rude, gravelly poetic wiseguy voice.´´-Benjamin Percy, The New York Times Book Review ´´Deeply engaging and entertaining . . . [Grisham finds] intense drama in the little skirmishes that play out across our legal system every day.´´-Charles Finch, USA Today ´´Grisham has taken a step in an intriguing new direction.´´-Janet Maslin, The New York Times
Heaven lays down the law and Hell gets more hellish in Lawyers in Hell, marking the return of Heroes in Hell - the greatest shared universe of all time. The commandments weren´t merely suggestions - and there were over 300 of them. And now, as the higher powers send auditors through the underworlds to dispense yet greater injustice, heroes and villains from all of history are about to be reminded that sin doesn´t pay...and in Hell, neither does virtue: Satan gives an interview and hands down a terrible judgment. Alexander the Great and Lawrence of Arabia try to get a soldier off the hook. Caesar and Cleopatra seek an out-of-court settlement when Hell´s auditors come calling. Leonidas and the 300 face a hot wash in Hades. Che Guevara and Kurt Cobain find out you can´t love the bomb. Rasputin tells it like it is, and deeper damnation is the result for Marie Antoinette. Napoleon and Wellington go high tech in order to fight Hell´s demons. Harry Houdini finds there´s no escape. All this and more peril in perdition await in 22 tales that will make you fear for your immortal soul....

Thucydides, Gibbon, Tuchman, McCullough: to the names of the world´s great historians must now be added the name of Dave Barry, who has taken a long, hard look at our new millennium (so far) and, when he stopped hyperventilating, has written it all down, because nobody would believe it otherwise. In November 2000, the skies darken over Florida as hundreds of thousands of lawyers parachute into the state from bombers, while in 2002, the federal budget surplus mysteriously disappears (´´Everybody looks high and low for it, but the darned thing is gone!´´). In April 2003, no WMD have been found, but investigators do discover three barrels of lard, described by U.S. intelligence analysts as ´´a heart attack waiting to happen´´, while in 2004, an already troubled nation receives an even greater blow: the sight of Janet Jackson´s exposed nipple. In 2005, Katrina, Cindy, Harriet, Martha, Valerie, Paris, Michael Jackson,(women just got crazy that year) while in November 2006... well, something happened; it´ll come back to us. Plus, an extra added bonus: Dave Barry´s complete history of the millennium so recently (and unlamentedly) gone: Crusaders! Vikings! Peter Minuit´s purchase of Manhattan for $24, plus $167,000 a month in maintenance fees! The invention of pizza by Leonardo da Vinci and of the computer by Charles Babbage (who died in 1871 still waiting to talk to somebody from Technical Support)! Filled with facts and commentary that will amaze your friends and confound your enemies (yes, we mean you, Osama!), this is the book that will finally earn Dave Barry his second Pulitzer Prize. And about darned time, too. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Patrick Frederic. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/peng/000740/bk_peng_000740_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
