The Runaway Jury Read Online Free - Every jury has a leader, and the verdict belongs to him. In Biloxi, Mississippi, a landmark tobacco trial with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake begins routinely, then swerves mysteriously off course.
The jury is behaving strangely, and at least one juror is convinced he's being watched. Soon they have to be sequestered. Then a tip from an anonymous young woman suggests she is able to predict the jurors' increasingly odd behavior.
Is the jury somehow being manipulated, or even controlled? If so, by whom? And, more importantly, why?
From the Trade Paperback edition.

I'm glad I didn't pay for this book. Our apartment building has a bookcase in front of the elevator, and someone in the building must be a Grisham fan, because I've picked up several of his books from the communal bookcase. This is the worst of the Grishams that I've read.
What annoyed me the most...

They have to play with both side...

Another Grisham legal thriller successfully concluded.
This is definitely one of the author's most exciting and unusual books. I think, in part, because those who have never served on a jury always wonder what exactly goes on behind those closed doors. They will never find out, though, because mos...

The beginning and very end of this book were very fast-paced and enticing. I enjoyed the mysterious characters and that the author allows the reader to know what many are thinking and feeling through various viewpoints. The plot-line of this book was very original.
I felt like I...

কযারেকটারে কারেকটারে ভরপুর কযারেকটারবান থরিলার। -_- এতই কযারেকটারবান যে কিছু দূর গেলেই ভুলে যেতে হয় আগে কে, কি কারনে ছিল।
আবার কিছু জায়গায় দৌড়াইছে তো কিছু জায়গায় ঘুমা পাড়ায় দিছে। -_-
৪০০পেজের বইয়ের কাহিনীটারে ৩লাইনে বলে ফেলা যায়। এত গুলান পেজ না বাড়াইলেও পারত। কষতি কিছু হইত না উলটা কাহিনী টানটান হয়...

It was okay... It definitely felt like more of a shot fired at the tobacco companies. It should have focused more on the story instead. As such, there isn't a huge amount of drama. There are tons of Grisham books so I'd advise you start elsewhere, like A Time to Kill.
All in all, this was just a...

Very entertaining. Very worthwhile. I wish more romance authors would write like him, but add romance.
For another book someone wrote “literary slugger John Grisham returns with a story about...” I thought how true. He is a literary slugger – almost always on the New York Times...

I loved this book.
I thought it was a little long, and at times I got bored, which I justified by putting myself is in the shoes of those poor jurors who spent all that time in court. Besides, the unraveling of Marlee's secret wasn't that great. I don't know; it seems a little flimsy. Her pare...

Another excellent work by a world revered writer. The kernel of the theme here is seemingly encapsulated when the odious Fitch ponders: "Oh the questions he wanted to ask. He d love to start with the two of them and ask whose idea it was, such an ingenious devious plan to study litigation, then f...

Anyone who’s been on a jury, and even those who haven’t, will appreciate Grisham’s The Runaway Jury.
Big tobacco companies are on the defense against claims by a widow that tobacco ruined her husband’s life and eventually killed him prematurely at the age of 53. Hundreds of millions of dollars and...
