Gray Mountain - A Big City Lawyer Transplanted to Gritty Reality

Reading the preview to Gray Mountain, I can't help think how my mother, a big John Grisham fan, would have loved this book. A book that gives a glimpse into the gritty world of a legal aid clinic in a coal mining town. While, the fish out of water plot , seems a bit shaky to me. Given John Grisham's reputation, I'm tempted to take his word for it. However, another part of me wants to find out: - are established lawyers actually required to work without pay in legal clinics in order to secure a possible job?

Here is the synopsis:
John Grisham, New York Times Best Selling Author, and master of legal thrillers,has a new hero . . . and she’s full of surprises !
The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer’s career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track—until the recession hits and she gets downsized, furloughed, escorted out of the building.
Samantha, though, is one of the “lucky” associates. She’s offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, after which there would be a slim chance that she’d get her old job back.
In a matter of days, Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about.
Mattie Wyatt, lifelong Brady resident and head of the town’s legal aid clinic, is there to teach her how to “help real people with real problems.”
For the first time in her career, Samantha prepares a lawsuit, sees the inside of an actual courtroom, gets scolded by a judge, and receives threats from locals who aren’t so thrilled to have a big-city lawyer in town.
And she learns Brady, like most small towns, harbours some big secrets.
Her new job takes Samantha into the murky and dangerous world of coal mining, where laws are often broken, rules are ignored, regulations are flouted, communities are divided, and the land itself is under attack from Big Coal.
Violence is always just around the corner, and within weeks Samantha finds herself engulfed in litigation that turns deadly.

What Does the Press Say About Gray Mountain?

The press reviews certainly piqued my interest, especially the quote about his message against Big Coal:
“An important new novel . . . Grisham’s work—always superior entertainment—is evolving into something more serious, more powerful, more worthy of his exceptional talent.” 
—Patrick Anderson, The Washington Post
 “John Grisham makes a powerful closing argument against Big Coal, but the message never obscures a satisfying, old fashioned, good guy-bad guy legal thriller.” 
—Christian Science Monitor
 “Grisham has written one of his best legal dramas in quite some time with this dive into small-town politics. There's a mystery, but that's a minor portion of the story. The main thrust that will engage readers is Samantha Kofer and the cast of characters that help her discover her passion.” —Associated Press
