#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ? Every jury has a leader, and the verdict belongs to them.
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 the jury must make a decision in the most explosive civil trial of the century, a precedent-setting lawsuit against a giant tobacco company. But only a handful of people know the truth: that this jury has a leader, and the verdict belongs to him.
He is known only as Juror #2. But he has a name, a past, and he has planned his every move with the help of a beautiful woman on the outside. 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

    Harvey1: Both are excellent tales,which can be enjoyed again and again. Each journey from cover to cover leads the reader into a deeper appreciation for the scope of understanding into humanity; it's flaws, foibles, and force.

This is a book about a jury in a tobacco company trial. A widow is suing a tobacco company because her husband died from lung cancer from smoking this company's cigarettes for many years. (No real tobacco companies were named in this book). At first glance, it appears that one juror (#2) is controlling the jury. But is he? Is he acting alone or is he working with someone on the outside? A woman keeps calling a jury consultant and giving information that turns out to be true - could she be working with Juror #2? One side wants/needs a verdict in favor of the tobacco company and the other side wants/needs a verdict in favor of the widow. Who will win?

Was also made into a movie in 2003 staring John Cusack, Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman, among others. ( )

When I first read this story, the book had been out only a couple years. I enjoyed it very much at that time. On this latest re-read (2024), I had forgotten most of the plot so the narrative felt fresh. However, the prolonged shenanigans by the defense consultants and the repetitious details involving the jury-tampering made the story drag and derailed building the suspense.

It's still a pretty good story, and the final reveal with Fitch and 'Marlee' a great ending. Grisham is a generally excellent author so fans are sure to enjoy the tale, despite the draggy courtroom testimony. ( )

Come sempre, bellissimo! ( )

Moral issues related to big tobacco companies are a hot topic in this novel and real life. The arguments—on both sides—made in this fictitious courtroom battle are thought-provoking, especially if you are a smoker. But then, The Runaway Jury is just a novel. Right? It's a crazy story of big-money purchasing votes, biased jurors, and corrupt lawyers. I found the story riveting and well-written, the characters fascinating, and the plot twists entertaining and suspenseful. ( )

[read audio] Very dense read. Decent story that occasionally got lost in the details. ( )

From Publishers Weekly
Grisham is either remarkably prescient or just plain lucky; because with public concerns about the tobacco companies heating up, and two major nonfiction books currently garnering a lot of attention, he has come up with a tobacco-suit novel that lights up the courtroom.

The face of Nicholas Easter was slightly hidden by a display rack filled with slim cordless phones, and he was looking not directly at the hidden camera but somewhere off to the left, perhaps at a customer, or perhaps at a counter where a group of kids hovered over the latest electronic games from Asia.
