    The Rooster Bar by John Grisham

Mark, Todd, and Zola came to law school to change the world. But now, as third-year students, these friends realize they have been duped. They borrowed heavily to attend a third-tier for-profit law school so mediocre that its graduates rarely pass the bar exam. When they learn that their school is owned by a shady New York hedge-fund operator who also happens to own a bank specializing in student loans, the three know they have been caught up in The Great Law School Scam.

But only a handful of people know the truth: that this jury has a leader, and the verdict belongs to him.
