The Broker

John Grisham, delivers another legal thriller of unparalled suspense. With fourteen years left on a twenty-year sentence, notorious Washington power broker, Joel Blackman, receives a surprise pardon from a lame-duck president. He is smuggled out of the country on a military cargo plane, given a new identity, and tucked away in a small town in Italy. But Blackman has serious enemies from his past. As the CIA watches him closely, the question is not whether he will be killed, but rather who will kill him first.

Niemand weiss, dass die umstrittene Entscheidung des Präsidenten erst auf grossen Druck der CIA zustande kam. Eine brisante Geschichte aus dem Zentrum der Macht, die nicht vom Weissen Haus, sondern von einem unkontrollierbaren Staat im Staate ausgeht. 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."

  • "In his final hours in the Oval Office, the outgoing President grants a controversial last-minute pardon to Joel Backman, a notorious Washington power broker who has spent the last six years hidden away in a federal prison. What no one knows is that the President issures the pardon only after receiving enormous pressure from the CIA. It seem Backman, in his power broker heyday, may have obtained secrets that compromise the world's most sophisticated satellite surveillance system. Backman is quietly smuggled out of the country in a military cargo plane, given a new name, a new identity, and a new home in Italy. Eventually, after he has settled into his new life, the CIA will leak his whereabouts to the Israelis, the Russians, the Chinese, and the Saudis. Then the CIA will do what it does best; sit back and watch. The question is not whether Backman will survive--there is no chance that. The question the CIA needs answered is, who will kill him?"
