There is good news for John Grisham fans. The prolific novelist who released a thriller, Camino Island, earlier this year in June, is back with another in October. In the legal thriller The Rooster Bar, Grisham will take on the student debt crisis, reports The Bookseller. The story is said to revolve around three law school friends who discover their school is owned by a hedge-fund operator – one who also owns a bank specialising in student loans.

The Rooster Bar is the name of the watering hole where they commiserate and ultimately hatch a plan to escape their debut, expose the scam and make money in the process.

UK publisher Hodder & Stoughton calls the novel “highly topical,” while Oliver Johnson, Grisham’s UK editor, promised “legal shenanigans galore.”

The Rooster Bar will be published internationally on October 24 in hardcover, e-book and audio versions. Grisham’s The Whistler was the third top-selling book of 2016.
