Sunday Times No 1 bestseller John Grisham returns to Mississippi in his most gripping thriller yet. 'As ever with Grisham there are corkscrew twists and turns as he ratchets up the suspense. It is exceptional story-telling, which leaves the reader begging for the novel never to end. Grisham has sold more than 300 million copies of his work. This shows exactly why' DAILY MAIL For most of the last hundred years, Biloxi was known for its beaches, resorts, and seafood industry. But it had a darker side. It was also notorious for corruption and vice, everything from gambling, prostitution, bootleg liquor, drugs . . . even contract killings. The vice was controlled by a small cabal of mobsters, many of them rumoured to be members of the Dixie Mafia. Keith Rudy and Hugh Malco grew up in Biloxi in the sixties and were childhood friends. But as teenagers, their lives took them in different directions. Keith's father became a legendary prosecutor, determined to 'clean up the Coast.' Hugh's father became the 'Boss' of Biloxi's criminal underground. Keith went to law school and followed in his father's footsteps. Hugh preferred the nightlife and worked in his father's clubs. The two families were headed for a showdown, one that would happen in a courtroom. Rich with history and with a large cast of unforgettable characters, The Boys from Biloxi is a sweeping saga of two sons of immigrant families who grow up as friends, but ultimately find themselves in a knife-edge legal confrontation in which life itself hangs in the balance. In this novel, Grisham takes his powerful storytelling to the next level, his trademark twists and turns will keep you tearing through the pages until the stunning conclusion. 'It's a story that spans half a century and ends inevitably in a courtroom showdown. A morally complex, compelling and illuminating read' MAIL ON SUNDAY 'Invites comparisons with the Godfather trilogy - it spans two generations and several postwar decades - and has a vast cast and a winning energy' SUNDAY TIMES 350+ million copies, 45 languages, 10 blockbuster films: NO ONE WRITES DRAMA LIKE JOHN GRISHAM

Dos amigos de la infancia. Dos familias. Dos lados opuestos de la ley. Un apasionante thriller en el que el maestro Grisham lleva su relato a otro nivel, con personajes memorables y giros inesperados que te harán devorar las páginas hasta su asombroso final. Desde hace casi un siglo, Biloxi es conocida por sus playas, complejos turísticos e industria pesquera. Pero también tiene un lado oscuro. Esta ciudad de Mississippi es además famosa por el crimen y la corrupción: desde el juego, la prostitución y el contrabando hasta el narcotráfico y los asesinatos a manos de sicarios. Un pequeño grupo controla la actividad criminal y se rumorea que muchos de ellos son miembros de la mafia del sur, conocida como mafia Dixie. Keith Rudy y Hugh Malco, amigos de la infancia e hijos de familias inmigrantes, crecieron en Biloxi durante los años sesenta, hasta que en la adolescencia sus vidas siguieron direcciones diferentes. El padre de Keith se convirtió en un legendario fiscal decidido a «limpiar la costa». El de Hugh llegó a ser el jefe de la red criminal clandestina de Biloxi. Keith decidió estudiar Derecho y seguir los pasos de su padre. Hugh prefirió trabajar en los clubes nocturnos del suyo. Las dos familias se dirigen directas hacia un decisivo enfrentamiento, que tendrá lugar en un tribunal... y en la que la vida de todos estará en la cuerda floja. La crítica ha dicho... «John Grisham es uno de los mejores escritores que tenemos en Estados Unidos en estos momentos». The New York Times «Invita a compararla con la trilogía de El Padrino —recorre dos generaciones y variasdécadas de la posguerra—, y tiene además un variado conjunto de personajes y una energía irresistible». Sunday Times «Esta historia atraviesa medio siglo y acaba inevitablemente con un enfrentamiento en el tribunal. Una lectura reveladora, fascinante y moralmente compleja». Mail on Sunday «Como siempre, Grisham presenta increíbles giros inesperados a medida que el suspense se intensifica. Su excepcional forma de narrar deja al lector con ganas de que la novela no termine nunca. Grisham ha vendido más de trescientos millones de ejemplares y este libro es la prueba de cómo lo ha logrado». Daily Mail «Un thriller legal al que se une un fascinante enfrentamiento en los tribunales y que es además mucho más que eso. Una saga familiar y una exploración de la zona gris entre el bien absoluto y la maldad absoluta que a veces recuerda a una novela de Don Winslow. Grisham ha creado aquí algunos de sus personajes más memorables». Booklist «Grisham vuelve a dar en el clavo con un thriller que tiene un gran trasfondo humano». Peterborough Telegraph

Books are leather-bound, signed and numbered, with printed endpapers, gold stamping, a slipcase, and a ribbon marker. New York Times bestselling author John Grisham takes you to a different kind of court in his first basketball novel. Samuel "Sooley" Sooleymon is a raw, young talent with big hoop dreams...and even bigger challenges off the court. In the summer of his seventeenth year, Sam­uel Sooleymon gets the chance of a lifetime: a trip to the United States with his South Sudanese teammates to play in a showcase basket­ball tournament. He has never been away from home, nor has he ever been on an airplane. The opportunity to be scouted by dozens of college coaches is a dream come true. Samuel is an amazing athlete, with speed, quick­ness, and an astonishing vertical leap. The rest of his game, though, needs work, and the American coaches are less than impressed. During the tournament, Samuel receives dev­astating news from home: A civil war is raging across South Sudan, and rebel troops have ran­sacked his village. His father is dead, his sister is missing, and his mother and two younger brothers are in a refugee camp. Samuel desperately wants to go home, but it's just not possible. Partly out of sympathy, the coach of North Carolina Central offers him a scholar­ship. Samuel moves to Durham, enrolls in classes, joins the team, and prepares to sit out his freshman season. There is plenty of more mature talent and he isn't immediately needed. But Samuel has something no other player has: a fierce determination to succeed so he can bring his family to America. He works tirelessly on his game, shooting baskets every morning at dawn by himself in the gym, and soon he's dominating everyone in practice. With the Central team los­ing and suffering injury after injury, Sooley, as he is nicknamed, is called off the bench. And the legend begins. But how far can Sooley take his team? And will success allow him to save his family? Gripping and moving, Sooley showcases John Grisham's unparalleled storytelling powers in a whole new light. This is Grisham at the top of his game.
