The Racketeer

Tue 16 September 2014 by Thejaswi Puthraya

An upcoming black lawyer finds himself behind bars for money-laundering. He hardly gets an opportunity to defend himself during the farcical proceedings. After the sentencing, he is treated on par with criminals convicted of heinous crimes and he seethes with anger at this and wants to get back at the system.

He gets a break when a judge is murdered and the case hits a dead end. Learning that the cops and judicial community are growing desperate every day, he devises a plan to get out of prison and take the system for a ride. What follows is not just hilarious but exposes the hypocrisy of the justice system.

From the author of path-breaking legal novels, John Grisham, this is a gripping novel that keeps you glued until the last page.
