The company appeals to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will one day either approve the verdict or reverse it. Who are the nine? How will they vote? Can one be replaced before the case is ultimately decided? The chemical company is owned by a Wall Street predator named Carl Trudeau, and Mr. Trudeau is convinced the Court is not friendly enough. With judicial elections looming, he decides to try to purchase himself a seat on the Court. The cost is a few million dollars, a drop in the bucket for a billionaire like Mr. Trudeau. 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.Hide synopsis

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 ...
