Kurzbeschreibung

1. Mai 1996
In a weedy lot on the outskirts of memphis, two  boys watch a shiny Lincoln pull upt ot the  curb... Eleven-year-old Mark Sway and his younger brother  were sharing a forbidden cigarrette when a chance  encounter with a suicidal laywer left Mark knowing  a bloody and explosive secret: the whereabouts of  the most sought-after dead body in America. Now  Mark is caught between a legal system gone mad  and a mob killer desperate to cover up his crime.  And his only ally is a woman named Reggie Love,  who has been a lawyer for all of four years.  Prosecutors are willing to break all the rules to make  Mark talk. The mob will stop at nothing to keep  him quiet. And Reggie will do anything to protect  her client -- even take a last, desperate gamble  that could win Mark his freedom... or cost them  both their lives.

Mehr über den Autor

Kurz und knapp sind die meisten von John Grishams Buchtiteln: "Der Gefangene", "Das Urteil", "Der Anwalt", "Das Testament". Sie lassen bereits erahnen, dass der 1955 geborene Autor Jurist ist. John Grisham lebte in den 80er-Jahren als niedergelassener Anwalt in Southaven, Mississippi, und genau diese Tätigkeit brachte ihn schließlich zum Schreiben. Ein Vergewaltigungsfall mit einem minderjährigen Opfer ließ ihn nicht mehr los. So entstand sein erster Roman, "Die Jury", den er neben einem 12- bis 14-stündigen Arbeitstag vorwiegend in der Nacht verfasste. Diesem ersten Bestseller sind seither weitere Thriller gefolgt, die ebenfalls die Bestsellerlisten stürmten.

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Mark Sway, age 11 but years wiser thanks to a drunken dad who abused his mom, is out in the woods behind his Memphis trailer park teaching his kid brother, Ricky, how to smoke Virginia Slims heisted from Mom's purse. He's a pretty upright kid--he's determined to protect his brother from drugs, and he once defended his mom with a baseball bat.

The dangers of smoking rapidly escalate when Mark glimpses a guy trying to commit suicide by carbon monoxide in his car nearby and tries to stop him. The guy is Jerome, a lawyer who tells Mark that his Mafia client has murdered Senator Boyd Boyette and buried him in the concrete under his garage in New Orleans. Then Jerome puts a bullet in his own head. Little Ricky flips out, and so does Barry the Blade Muldanno, who doesn't want blustery U.S. attorney Reverend Roy Foltrigg to find the corpse and bust him. Caught in a ruthless game between the Mob and the amoral authorities, Mark's family has no defense in the world except Reggie Love, a 50ish divorcée who has just turned her life around by becoming a lawyer. Does she have what it takes to help Mark beat the system? The life-or-death chase is on!

Mark has seen a lot of movies, and he sees life in cinematic terms. So does Grisham. Even if this novel had never been filmed, it would still be a really good, fast-paced movie. Its literary limitation is also its filmlike virtue: The Client is a rush.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Readable, entertaining boiler-plate legal "thriller" 23. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
John Grisham's books are perfect for reading on extended airplane trips or in other situations where all one desires is a readable "page-turner" to help while away the hours. The particular novel is formulaic from start to finish, complete with shallow, stereotyped characters (including a boy protagonist who apparently is eleven going on thirty in terms of his outlook and behavior). The "bad guys" are unrelentingly bad, while the "good guys" are practically saints. Perfect, eh?
Grisham is a master of the "easy read," and the book is excellent in terms of its basic function, which is to entertain. Great literature it isn't, however, so don't begin this novel with unrealistic expectations in this regard.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great read! 12. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Saw the movie "The Pelican Brief" and it sent me looking for Grisham's books. Just finished this one and enjoyed it immensely: The characters were varied,well-define and a wonderful mix of adversaries and people almost on the same side. Best was the relationship between young Mark and his lawyer Reggie (50 year-old female - how often do you see a heroine like that! ). You never knew what would happen next - almost to the last page. Grisham is easy to read but his plot is by not means simple. A great read, which I warn you might keep you up late to finish! I've just started "The Testament" and it looks like it will also be a wonderful page-turner! Enjoy!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good Read 13. Juni 2000
Von Meleyna
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book was well written, Grisham creating a wonderful page turner full of suspense and mystery. But the book got boring at parts, for instance, the scenario when the lawyers gathered seemed rather dry. But the fact that I read this at 12 may add to that emotion. I suppose that it was necessary, and it is rather hard to make lawyers seem interesting. (I should know, my dad is probably the most boring person to grace this planet. And he just happens to be a lawyer. Coincidence? I think not!) Anyway, I recommend this book to anyone, but be prepared for some heavy reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Do you believe? 18. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Do you believe that in our society a story whose main characters are a 50+ attorney and her 11 year old client would become a best seller and a TV show? I couldn't be more thrilled. Of course, the book had to be good for this to happen and it is. You become a part of the lives of these two characters, worrying with them page per page about what will happen next. The plot twists and turns and leaves you with a satisfying ending just when you think it's not possible. Well worth your time!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Another retread of The Firm 10. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Why was this book even necessary? Even "The Firm", which this book clones, was far from thrilling. The plotline of the firm involved a lawyer who had to run from the mob and get to the finish line, I mean, the Witness Protection Agency. Will he get there in the nick of time? I'll let you know after I finish yawning. Well, guess what? The same story isn't any more thrilling when you substitute an 11-year-old boy for the lawyer, as was done here. It's also no more thrilling than it was in "The Pelican Brief", in which a young law student who's described as a redheaded cheerleader type (Julia Roberts screenplay anyone?) replaced the lawyer.
This in itself might not matter if the characters were involving, but characterization is one of Grisham's weakest points. As if that wasn't enough, he also employs the Idiot Plot. If Mark, the precocious-beyond-his-years 11-year-old, had made an anonymous phone call to the police from a pay phone, telling them what he knew, no one would have been the wiser, the mystery would be solved, and Mark's life wouldn't have been in danger. However, the book would have to stop too soon, so Mark is required to put himself in a situation where he's seen as a threat. Everyone, including the "bad guys" chasing Mark, has to be improbably moronic enough never to get him, just as they never got Mitchell in "The Firm" or Darby in "The Pelican Brief". By now, it's not even worth wondering what will happen in this by-the-numbers plot, any more than it would be worth wondering if just once, Elmer Fudd could outsmart Bugs Bunny.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Grisham strikes again! 21. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Romey, the lawyer of a man accused of murdering a congressman, commits suicide. Mark Sway, an eleven year old boy, observes the act but little does he know that it will lead him into serious trouble. Mark has learned crucial information that will convict the Mafia hit-man, who is accused of murder, but he doesn't want to tell the district attorney. He is afraid the Mafia will kill him too. Mark hires a lawyer to protect his rights and help him out-smart both the district attorney and the Mafia. I really liked this book. It is probably one of the best books I have read and I'm sure I would enjoy it just as much if I read it again. "The Client" is filled with suspense which made it really hard for me to put down. I love suspenseful books because each chapter leaves the reader hanging, not knowing what will happen next. I've read most of John Grisham's books and this has to be his best. His other books are not as suspenseful and riviting as "The Client." The book is really long and it took me a while to read it. It contains long, drawn-out scenes dealing with law, but the good things out-weigh the bad. One of the best things about "The Client" is how Grisham shows the age and attitude of Mark. A great example is when Mark asks the judge if he can take the 5th amendment. The judge says no but Mark replies, "Why Not? It applies to kids to doesn't it? Yes, (says the judge) but not in this situation. Then why did you put me in jail? (Mark replies) I'm going to send you back there if you don't answer my questions (the judge declares). I take the fifth amendment anyway (responds Mark)." John Grisham is a terrific writer and I really enjoyed reading this book and I would recommend it to anyone who really enjoys suspenseful stories.
