In a crowded courtroom in Mississippi, a jury returns a shocking verdict against a chemical company. They have been accused of dumping toxic waste into a small town's water supply, causing the worst "cancer cluster" in history. The company appeals to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will one day either approve the verdict or reverse it. But chemical company owner, Carl Trudeau, decides to try to purchase himself a seat on the Court. Through an intricate web of conspiracy and deceit, his political operatives recruit a young, unsuspecting candidate. They finance him, manipulate him, market him, and mould him into a potential Supreme Court justice. Their Supreme Court justice. The Appeal is a powerful, timely, and shocking story of political and legal intrigue, a story that will leave readers unable to think about the electoral process or judicial system in quite the same way ever again.

Having read all of Mr. Grisham's books and loving MOST of them, this goes into the "OK" stack. For me, it didn't have the don't-want-to-put-it-down element. I did finish it but not in record time. He can do better and surely has.

A husband and wife lawyer team risk everything they have to go up against a powerful corporation that has been illegally dumping toxic waste that infiltrated their town?s water supply causing cancer to hundreds of town?s people. Even though this is a novel, John Grisham gives his readers enormous amounts of real life laws and procedures of court room drama and how ?big business? can manipulate the outcome. You will receive great insight as to how our justice system works and a new awareness of our voting rights, with a very thought provoking ending.
