Grisham often can be found writing in one of two modes, depending on the novel. In the case of "The Rooster Bar," he is amusing and almost lighthearted at times, with a nearly implausible tale of hustling street lawyers living by their smarts and audacity. But there are also moments, bluntly overt ones, which reveal the other side of Grisham that we know so well, his sense of moral outrage at the student loan debt crisis, for-profit law schools, "Swift Bank" fraud (read: Wells Fargo), and even the deportation policies of the ICE.
