Джон Гришем
John Grisham

США, 8.2.1955


Писатель

Родился в Джонсборо, штат Арканзас. В 1967 году семья переехала в Саутхэйвен (Миссисиппи). Учился последовательно в Высшей школе Саутхэйвена, Северо-Западном колледже, кливлендском университете, старквилльском университете штата Миссисиппи. Последняя перемена учебного заведения была связана с тем, что Гришэм бросил бейсбол и занялся экономикой. Он хотел "взрослеть и учиться". По окончании курса в 1977 он продолжил обучение в оксфордском университете штата Миссисиппи, специализируясь сначала по налоговому, затем уголовному законодательству. В 1981 открыл собственный офис в Саутхэйвене. Занимался преимущественно уголовной адвокатурой и делами о нарушении личной неприкосновенности. В 1983 занимал выборную должность. Литературной деятельностью увлекся в 1984, спустя пять лет вышла первая книга - "Время убивать". Вторая книга, "Фирма"(1991), в течение 47 недель оставалась в списке бестселлеров, а права на экранизацию приобрел Голливуд за 600 000 долларов. В дальнейшем Гришэм опубликовал ряд романов, в том числе "Партнер" (1997), "Адвокат" (1998), "Покрашенный дом" (2001), "Брокер" (2005). Многие его произведения легли в основу голливудских фильмов, в их числе - "Фирма" (1993, реж. Сидней Поллак), "Дело о пеликанах" (1993, реж. Алан Дж. Пакула), "Пора убивать" (1996, реж. Джоель Шумахер). Джон Гришэм и его жена Рене Джонс живут в Оксфорде (Миссисиппи) и Шарлоттсвилле (Вирджиния). У них двое детей: Ти (сын) и Ши. Издает журнал The Oxford American.

Kyle McAvoy is one of the outstanding legal students of his generation: he's good-looking, has a brilliant mind and a glittering future ahead of him. But he has a secret from his past, a secret that threatens to destroy his fledgling career and, possibly, his entire life.
One night that secret catches up with him in the form of some bad men in a dark alley - they have a deeply compromising video of the incident that haunts him. The men make it clear to Kyle that he no longer owns his own future - that he must do as they tell him, or the video will be made public knowledge, with all the unpleasant consequences.
What price do they demand for Kyle's secret? Strangely, it is for Kyle to do exactly what any ambitious young lawyer would want to do: take a job in New York as an associate at the largest law firm in the world, a job that is incredibly well paid and, with mammoth hours and outrageous billing, could lead to partnership and a fortune.
However, Kyle won't be working for the company, but against it - passing on the secrets of the firm's biggest trial to date, a dispute between two defence contractors worth billions of dollars to the victor. Now Kyle is caught between the criminal forces manipulating him, and the FBI, who would love to unmask the conspiracy. Will his intellect, cunning and bravery be enough to extricate him from an impossible dilemma?

Rick Dockery was the third-string quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. In the AFC Championship game, to the surprise and dismay of virtually everyone, Rick actually got into the game. With a 17-point lead and just minutes to go. Rick provided what was arguably the worst single performance in the history of the NFL. Overnight, he became a national laughingstock - and was immediately cut by the Browns and shunned by all other teams.
But all Rick knows is football, and he insists that his agent find a team that needs him. Against enormous odds. Rick finally gets a job - as the starting quarterback for the Mighty Panthers… of Parma, Italy. The Parma Panthers desperately want a former NFL player - any former NFL player - at their helm. And now they've got Rick, who knows nothing about Parma (not even where it is) and doesn't speak a word of Italian. To say that Italy - the land of fine wines, extremely small cars, and football Americano - holds a few surprises for Rick Dockery would be something of an understatement…

When Mitchell McDeere qualified third in his class at Harvard, offers poured in from every law firm in America.
The firm he chose was small, but-well respected. They were prepared to match, and then exceed Mitch's wildest dreams: eighty thousand a year, a BMW and a low-interest mortgage.
Now the house, the car and the job are his. Then the nightmares begin: the secret files, the bugs in the new bedroom, the mysterious deaths of colleagues, and the millions of dollars of mob money pouring through the office into the Cayman Islands, dollars that the FBI would do anything to trace.
Now Mitch is in the place where dreams end and nightmares begin...

The Broker
Мягкая обложка (2005)

ЗАКАЗАТЬ

Before he was sent to federal prison for treason (among other things), Joel Backman was an extremely powerful man. Known as "the broker," Backman was a high roller--a lawyer making $10 million a year who could "open any door in Washington." That is, until he tried to broker a deal selling access to the world's most powerful satellite surveillance system to the highest bidder. When caught, Backman accepted prison as the one option that would keep him safe and alive, since the interested parties (the Israelis, the Saudis, the Russians, and the Chinese) were all itching to get their hands on his secrets at any cost. Little does he know that his own government has designs on accessing that information--or at least letting it die with him. Now, six years after his incarceration, the director of the CIA convinces a lame duck president to pardon Backman, and the broker becomes a free man--and an open target.

Once he was a well-liked, well-paid young partner in a thriving Mississippi law firm. Then Patrick Lanigan stole ninety million dollars from his own firm-and ran for his life. For four years, he evaded men who were rich, powerful, and would stop at nothing to find him. Then, inevitably, on the edge of the Brazilian jungle, they finally tracked him down.
Now Patrick is coming home. And in the Mississippi city where it all began, an extraordinary trial is about to begin. As prosecutors circle like sharks, as Patrick's lawyer prepares his defense, as Patrick's lover prays for his deliverance and his former partners wait for their revenge, another story is about to emerge. Because Patrick Lanigan, the most reviled white-collar criminal of his time, knows something that no one else in the world knows.
He knows the truth....

Imagine a year without Christmas. No crowded malls, no corny office parties, no fruitcakes, no unwanted presents. That's just what Luther and Nora Krank have in mind when they decide that, just this once, they'll skip the holiday altogether. Theirs will be the only house on Hemlock Street without a rooftop Frosty; they won't be hosting their annual Christmas Eve bash; they aren't even going to have a tree. They won't need one, because come December 25 they're setting sail on a Caribbean cruise. But as this weary couple is about to discover, skipping Christmas brings enormous consequences-and isn't half as easy as they'd imagined.
A classic tale for modern times, Skipping Christmas offers a hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy that have become part of our holiday tradition.
