Tras perder su trabajo en un prestigioso bufete de abogados, una joven se implica en la defensa de un paisaje en riesgo, en un territorio sin ley. La nueva heroína de Grisham es una caja de sorpresas. Hace una semana Samantha Kofer trabajaba en una prestigiosa firma de abogados de Nueva York. Ahora trabaja gratis en una asesoría legal para clientes sin recursos en una pequeña ciudad de Virginia. La caída de Lehman Brothers supuso para ella la pérdida del trabajo, de la seguridad y del futuro. Su mundo no tiene nada que ver con su vida pasada de peces gordos y bonos desorbitados. En la actualidad se enfrenta a clientes reales con problemas reales en las tierras del carbón, donde la ley es diferente y defender la verdad significa poner en peligro la vida. Su nuevo jefe se dedica a demandar a las compañías mineras por los destrozos medioambientales que están devastando la comarca, y mucha gente lo odia por ello. La vida de Samantha ha dado un giro de 180 grados. La crítica ha dicho... «El mejor autor de thriller vivo.» Ken Follet «Esta no es una historia sobre un triunfo o un fallo judicial. Es la sorprendente y compleja historia de un hombre inteligente, a quien la experiencia de cinco años como abogado de causas nobles lo convierte en un astuto defensor capaz de urdir un ingenioso plan de venganza. Grisham borda la historia.» The New York Times «Emocionante. Lleva al lector por una vía, la del hombre inocente en busca de la exoneración, para cambiar con una facilidad exquisita a otra diferente, la de jugar al gato y al ratón.» The Guardian «Una gran aportación a la biblioteca de Grisham, siempre fuente de entretenimiento asegurado, que evoluciona hacia algo más serio, más potente, muestra de su excepcional talento.» The Washington Post «Un excelente y clásico thriller legal con chico bueno y chico malo.» The Christian Science Monitor «Grisham ha escrito uno de sus mejores thrillers legales con esta inmersión en la política de las ciudades pequeñas.» Associated Press

The village of Shimae is thrown into turmoil when master carp-catcher Katsuro suddenly drowns in the murky waters of the Kusagawa river. Who now will carry the precious cargo of carp to the imperial palace and preserve the crucial patronage that everyone in the village depends upon? Step forward Miyuki, Katsuro's grief-struck widow and the only remaining person in the village who knows anything about carp. She alone can undertake the long, perilous journey to the imperial palace, balancing the heavy baskets of fish on a pole across her shoulders, and ensure her village's future. So Miyuki sets off. Along her way she will encounter a host of remarkable characters, from prostitutes and innkeepers, to warlords and priests with evil in mind. She will endure ambushes and disaster, for the villagers are not the only people fixated on the fate of the eight magnificent carp. But when she reaches the Office of Gardens and Ponds, Miyuki discovers that the trials of her journey are far from over. For in the Office of Gardens and Ponds, nothing is quite as it seems, and beneath its veneer of refinement and ritual, there is an impenetrable barrier of politics and snobbery that Miyuki must overcome if she is to return to Shimae.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more. 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. Praise for Gray Mountain “[An] important new novel . . . superior entertainment.”—The Washington Post “Powerful . . . a satisfying, old-fashioned, good guy/bad guy legal thriller.”—The Christian Science Monitor “Yes, Gray Mountain is fiction. But after reading the book, you’ll believe heroic action must be taken.”—USA Today “Grisham has written one of his best legal dramas.”—Associated Press From the Trade Paperback edition.

In the tradition of A Civil Ac tion—the true story of a North Carolina outdoorsman who teams up with his Appalachian “mountain people” neighbors to save treasured land from being destroyed Living alone in his wooded mountain retreat, Jay Leutze gets a call from a whip-smart fourteen-year-old, Ashley Cook, and her aunt, Ollie Cox, who say a mining company is intent on tearing down Belview Mountain, the towering peak above their house. Ashley and her family, who live in a little spot known locally as Dog Town, are “mountain people,” with a way of life and speech unique to their home high in the Appalachians. They suspect the mining company is violating the law, and they want Jay, a nonpracticing attorney, to stop the destruction of the mountain. Jay, a devoted naturalist and fisherman, quickly decides to join their cause. So begins the epic quest of the “Dog Town Bunch,” a battle that involves fiery public hearings, clandestine surveillance of the mine operator’s activities, ferocious pressure on public officials, and high-stakes legal brinksmanship in the North Carolina court system. Jay helps assemble a talented group of environmental lawyers to do battle with the well-funded attorneys protecting the mining company’s plan to dynamite Belview Mountain, which happens to sit next to the famous Appalachian Trail, the 2,184-mile national park that stretches from Maine to Georgia. As the mining company continues to level the forest and erect a gigantic rock-crushing plant on the site, Jay’s group searches frantically for a way to stop an act of environmental desecration that will destroy a fragile wild place and mar the Appalachian Trail forever. Much more than the record of a legal battle, Stand Up That Mountain takes the reader to a remote corner of Appalachia, a region often stereotyped and little understood, even now in the twenty-first century. A naturally elegant writer, Jay Leutze delivers a powerful, beautifully written story full of remarkable characters, such as “Wingfoot,” an elusive protector of the Appalachian Trail; a stubborn mining company engineer intent on pulling down the mountain in the face of intense opposition; and Ron Howell, a retired and legendary North Carolina Superior Court judge known as the “Heel Hound” for his relentless pursuit of legal victory. Jay’s plaintiff group is eventually joined by several national conservation groups who see that Belview Mountain and the Appalachian Trail must be protected for future generations of Americans. A great contemporary story that demonstrates what is possible when local people set their minds to righting a local wrong, Stand Up That Mountain will appeal to conservationists, hikers, attorneys, and readers fascinated by Appalachia and rural life, and anyone interested in a compelling story both well told and true.

An enchanting love story—a tale of big money, fine art, and great books On a rainy afternoon in London’s old Chelsea, a charming multi-billionaire Russian oligarch, Gorsky, walks into an ailing bookshop and writes the first of several quarter-of-a-million pound checks. With that money, Gorsky has tasked Nikola, the store’s bored and brilliant clerk, with sourcing books for a massive personal library, which which will be housed in the magnificent, palatial home Gorsky happens to be building immediately next to Nikola’s own modest dwelling. Gorsky needs a tasteful collection of Russian literature to woo a long-lost love—no matter that she happens to be married to an Englishman. His passion for her surpasses even his immeasurable wealth, and Nikola will be drawn into a world of opulence, greed, capitalism, sex, and beauty as he helps Gorsky pursue this doomed love. Charmingly written and inspired by The Great Gatsby, Gorsky is a vicarious thrill—an ode to cosmopolitan taste and a brilliant reimagining of a powerful classic.
