The Runaway Jury

The Runaway Jury

Summary

When justice is for sale, every jury has a price . . .

In Biloxi, Mississippi, a landmark trial against a tobacco company begins.

Millions of dollars are at stake and soon the case swerves mysteriously off course. The jury begin behaving strangely, and one of the jurors is convinced he's being watched.

Soon they have to be sequestered.

But then an anonymous tip from a young woman suggests she knows why the jury are behaving oddly.

Someone has a plan. But who? And, more importantly, what do they want?_______________________________________
