Following on from the number one bestseller Theodore Boone, John Grisham delivers high intensity legal drama for a new generation of readers.

Synopsis

Theodore Boone 2: The Abduction by John Grisham

Theodore Boone is back in a new adventure, and the stakes are higher than ever. When his best friend, April, disappears from her bedroom in the middle of the night, no one, not even Theo Boone - who knows April better than anyone - has answers. As fear ripples through his small hometown and the police hit dead ends, it's up to Theo to use his legal knowledge and investigative skills to chase down the truth and save April. Filled with the page-turning suspense that made John Grisham a number one international bestseller and the undisputed master of the legal thriller, Theodore Boone's trials and triumphs will keep readers guessing until the very end.

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.
