'The Best Thriller Writer Alive' Ken Follett
There's one last change for justice . . .
They dreamed of changing the world. Instead they're facing a mountain of debt and no hope of a future.
Mark, Todd and Zola are starting to realise it's not even worth graduating from law school. They're better off hanging out at The Rooster Bar, plotting how to dodge the loan sharks.
But maybe there's another way. Maybe they know enough about the law to pass as lawyers.
Because it turns out the crooked hedge fund billionaire who owns their law school also runs the bank that arranged their student loans.
And it's time justice was served. Even if it means taking on the FBI to do it . . .

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In The Rooster Bar, John Grisham examines not just lawyers but the schools that train them—in particular, substandard for-profit law schools that prey on their loan-burdened victims. As four classmates stare down graduation and recognise the near-worthlessness of the degrees they're about to earn, the emotional and financial pressure pushes one of them over the edge. What follows is an unpredictable slalom through the world of dehumanising, bottom-feeding legal behaviour. We especially enjoyed Grisham’s jittery jolt of Ocean's Eleven–esque plot twists.

The Rooster Bar
How does he do it? He just gets better and better! As usual the plot moves along briskly supported by the charachters' use of Mr G’s delightfully cynical sense of humour. This is the second book I have read in a few months and in both the good guys are really quite bad but rather like modern, transatlantic versions of Robin Hood. The reader is transfixed by sympathy for the plight of the principal members of the cast. Almost until the last page one is on the edge of one’s seat hoping that they will get away with it. Come on Mr G where are the next 10 or so?
The Rooster Bore
Read and loved many books from this author unable to put them down. This one however is boring, droll, desperate. Characters weak, perhaps year nine standard. Really poor. Want my money back.
This simply has to rate up there as one of the worst books I’ve ever read. What a load of total utter tosh
