ROGUE LAWYER By John Grisham, Doubleday $28.95

Sebastian Rudd is a tough-as-nails street lawyer who works only for the down and out clients no one else wants. Operating out of a converted van, driven by his friend, confidant and bodyguard, his clients include: a drugged out kid charged with murdering two little girls; a homeowner charged with shooting a Police SWAT team member that mistakenly invaded his house in the middle of the night; a vicious crime lord on death row; and toughest of all, battling his ex-wife over custody of their young son. Fast paced, gritty and typical Grisham.

CROSS JUSTICE By James Patterson, Little, Brown $29.00

It’s been 35 years since Alex Cross left his home in Starksville, N.C. intending never to return. Yet when he’s asked to help his cousin, Stefan, charged with a horrible murder, he could not refuse. With all his family, Bree, Nana, Mama, Jannie and Ali in tow, he steps once more into the old family home and is overwhelmed with unhappy memories. He pledges to investigate the case, but promises if he finds Stefan in fact guilty, he won’t cover for him. It’s personal, dangerous and “proves you can go home again-but it just may kill you.”
