Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In a plush Virginia office, a rich, angry old man is furiously rewriting his will. With his death just hours away, Troy Phelan wants to send a message to his children, his ex-wives, and his minions—a message that will touch off a vicious legal battle and transform dozens of lives.

Because Troy Phelan’s new will names a sole surprise heir to his eleven-billion-dollar fortune: a mysterious woman named Rachel Lane, a missionary living deep in the jungles of Brazil.

Enter the lawyers. Nate O’Riley is fresh out of rehab, a disgraced corporate attorney handpicked for his last job: to find Rachel Lane at any cost. As Phelan’s family circles like vultures in D.C., Nate goes crashing through the Brazilian jungle, entering a world where money means nothing, where death is just one misstep away, and where a woman—pursued by enemies and friends alike—holds a stunning surprise of her own.

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

Inspiring

Read this book in Italy twelve years ago and led me to be a better person, trying to avoid all those mistakes Nate made. I was 34, lived in Italy working as a busy lawyer.
Now I'm 46, live in Chicago, divorced, went twice to rehab and read again this book. I made half of Nate's mistakes, fortunately no kids.
Hope to meet my Rachel sometime and to read this book more often

Lovely and great read

Reminds me of Mitchner’s Cheasapeake but all about The swamps of Brazil.
