Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • John Grisham has a new hero ... and she’s full of surprises.
 
The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer’s career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track—until the recession hits and she is downsized, furloughed, and escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, all for a slim chance of getting rehired.
 
In a matter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about. Samantha’s new job takes her into the murky and dangerous world of coal mining, where laws are often broken, communities are divided, and the land itself is under attack. But some of the locals aren’t so thrilled to have a big-city lawyer in town, and within weeks Samantha is engulfed in litigation that turns deadly. Because like most small towns, Brady harbors big secrets that some will kill to conceal.

Don’t miss John Grisham’s new book, THE EXCHANGE: AFTER THE FIRM!

Interesting

Learned about strip mining for coal. Sad situation.

Why ratings showing up now?

Negative reviews (since no one’s read the book yet) might be a response to his comments in the Guardian to the effect of white men over 60 looking at kiddie porn shouldn’t be in jail. High ick factor.

Blah Book

Not up to Grisham standards. Wouldn't recommend it. There was no real closure to the story. It felt like Grisham wrote a predetermined number of pages and ended the book when he hit that number.
