Whether you're writing fiction or non-fiction, or intend to publish traditionally or self-publish, author Nina Amir will teach you how to conduct an effective competitive analysis for your work and do a better job at delivering the goods to readers than similar books that are already on the shelf.

Im Zweifel gegen den Angeklagten Sebastian Rudd ist kein typischer Anwalt. Seine Kanzlei ist ein Lieferwagen, eingerichtet mit Bar, Kühlschrank und Waffenschrank. Er arbeitet allein, sein einziger Vertrauter ist sein Fahrer, der zudem als Leibwächter und Golfcaddie fungiert. Sebastian Rudd verteidigt jene Menschen, die andere als den Bodensatz der Gesellschaft bezeichnen. Warum? Weil er Ungerechtigkeit verabscheut und überzeugt ist, dass jeder Mensch einen fairen Prozess verdient. Mit Sebastian Rudd hat John Grisham seinen brillantesten, eigenwilligsten und lebendigsten Helden geschaffen. Der Gerechte ist hart, clever und packend und zeigt den Meister des Justizthrillers in Höchstform.
