Mark pulled a dollar from his pocket and handed it to her. „This is all I`ve got”
She put the dollar on the desk and said, Okay, now I`m the lawyer and you`re the client. Let`s hear the story.
Mark Sway is eleven, and he knows where a body is hidden. With that body the FBI can prove a Mafia murder.
Mark wants to be honest, but he also wants to be safe. He is afraid to tell his dangerous secret because he knows that the Mafia will never forget. His younger brother is sick and his mother cannot leave the hospital. Who can he trust?
With time moving fast, Mark finds an unusual lawyer. She alone must protect the child and his family from the law and the killers. But she has help: Mark is a clever client.
John Grisham was born in 1955 in Arkansas, in the USA. He studied law, and had his own law company for nine years. He also worked in local government in Mississippi.
In 1984 he started his first book, A Time to Kill. He went to the office at 5 a.m. every day to write it. It took three years, but it didn`t sell very well. Two years later, his next book, The Firm, was a bestseller, and became a film with Tom Cruise. John Grisham was able to give up law and write The Pelican Brief. This became another bestseller, and another film, with Julia Roberts.
John Grisham now lives on a large farm in Mississippi with his wife and two children. He is one of the world`s bestselling crime writers. The Client is his fourth book and it has also been made into a film.
