  • ""Der vielleicht spannendste Schmöker aller Zeiten." Focus In Biloxi, einer verschlafenen Kleinstadt an der Golfküste von Mississippi, findet ein Prozess satt, der weltweit Aufsehen erregt. Da die Geschworenen unter grossem Druck stehen, sieht sich der Richter genötigt, die Jury von der Aussenwelt abzuschotten: Er sperrt sie unter strikter Bewachung in ein Motel. Dennoch mehren sich die Anzeichen, dass die Jury von aussen kontrolliert wird, denn im Hintergrund lauern handfeste Interessen: Für einen mächtigen Konzern geht es um Milliarden ... John Grisham hat 24 Romane, ein Sachbuch, einen Erzählband und drei Jugendbücher veröffentlicht. Seine Bücher wurden in 38 Sprachen übersetzt. Er lebt in Virginia und Mississippi."

They are at the center of a multimillion dollar legal hurricane: twelve men and women who have been investigated, watched, manipulated, and harassed by high-priced lawyers and consultants who will stop at nothing to secure a verdict. Now that the jury must make a decision in the most explosive trial of the century, a precedent-setting lawsuit against a giant tobacco company.

Now, while a corporate empire hangs in the balance, while a grieving family waits, and while lawyers are plunged into a battle for their careers, the truth about Juror #2 is about to explode, in a cross fire of greed and corruption--and with justice fighting for its life."@en
  • "Based on the bestseller by John Grisham, Runaway Jury is a slick thriller that's exciting enough to overcome the gaps in its plot. The ultimate target has been changed: Grisham's legal assault on the tobacco industry was switched to the hot-button issue of gun control (no doubt to avoid comparison to The Insider) in a riveting exposé of jury-tampering. Gene Hackman plays the ultra-cynical, utterly unscrupulous pawn of the gun-makers, using an expert staff and advanced electronics to hand-pick a New Orleans jury that will return a favorable verdict; Dustin Hoffman (making his first screen appearance with real-life former roommate Hackman) defends the grieving widow of a gun-shooting victim with idealistic zeal, while maverick juror John Cusack and accomplice Rachel Weisz play both ends against the middle in a personal quest to hold gun-makers accountable. It's riveting stuff, even when it's obvious that Grisham and director Gary Fleder have glossed over any details that would unravel the plot's intricate design."@en
