#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

They call themselves the Brethren: three disgraced former judges doing time in a Florida federal prison. One was sent up for tax evasion. Another, for skimming bingo profits. The third for a career-ending drunken joyride. Meeting daily in the prison law library, taking exercise walks in their boxer shorts, these judges-turned-felons can reminisce about old court cases, dispense a little jailhouse justice, and contemplate where their lives went wrong. Or they can use their time in prison to get very rich—very fast.

And so they sit, sprawled in the prison library, furiously writing letters, fine-tuning a wickedly brilliant extortion scam—while events outside their prison walls begin to erupt. A bizarre presidential election is holding the nation in its grips, and a powerful government figure is pulling some very hidden strings. For the Brethren, the timing couldn’t be better. Because they’ve just found the perfect victim.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's The Litigators.

Great book!

I really liked this book. Didn't want to put it down. Only complaint I have is the ending, it seemed a bit rushed. A fun read.

Favorite

This by far is my favorite book. I couldn't stop reading it. Such a great storyteller Grisham is. I could visualize every part... It helps that I'm from Jacksonville.
