I like John Grisham.
I think I have read most, if not all of his books.
One of the things I have learned about the legal system is that the primary method of defence is attack. No matter how guilty the accused is, he tries to get off by discrediting the primary witness. Whether he is a Mafia Boss or a leading politician, all he has to do is to discover one little aspect of the witness’ life and blow it out of all proportion. So a quick joint twenty years ago means the witness is a drug dealer and the slime-ball gets off because the testimony is corrupted. Or whatever.
Dirty but probably effective.
I wonder if Dominique Strauss-Kahn reads John Grisham’s books?
