Synopsis

Theodore Boone 3: the Accused by John Grisham

Following on from the bestselling Theodore Boone and Theodore Boone: The Abduction, John Grisham delivers high intensity legal drama for a new generation of readers.

Theodore Boone is the thirteen year old who knows more about the law than most adult lawyers. He certainly never expected to be the victim of crime himself. But then his bike is vandalised, he's attacked while doing his homework and, worst of all, framed for a robbery. When stolen computer equipment turns up in Theo's school locker, the police start leaning on him hard. And he is the only suspect. What if he is found guilty? What about his dreams of becoming a lawyer? In a race against time, aided by his renegade uncle, Ike, Theo must find the real felon and reveal the true motivation behind the crimes of which he stands accused.

About the Author

John Grisham

Long before John Grisham's name became synonymous with the modern legal thriller, he was working 60-70 hours a week at a small law practice in Southaven, Mississippi, squeezing in time before going to the office and during courtroom breaks to work on his hobby - writing his first novel.

One day at the Dessoto County courthouse, Grisham overheard a harrowing testimony and was inspired to start a novel. Getting up at 5 a.m. every day to get in several hours of writing time before heading off to work, Grisham spent three years on A Time to Kill and finished it in 1987. Initially rejected by many publishers, it was eventually bought by Wynwood press, who gave it a modest 5,000 copy printing and published it in June 1988.

Since first publishing A Time to Kill in 1988, Grisham has written one novel a year and all of them have become international bestsellers. There are currently over 225 million John Grisham books in print worldwide, which have been translated into 29 languages. Nine of his novels have been turned into films. He has also written a series for younger readers, Theodore Boone (see below).

When he's not writing, John Grisham devotes time to charitable causes, including most recently his Rebuild The Coast Fund, which raised 8.8 million dollars for Gulf Coast relief in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. He also keeps up with his greatest passion: baseball.
