Product Specification & Summary

Summary Of The Book
The Racketeer is a novel based on an African American protagonist named Malcolm Bannister, who had been involved in a large real estate transaction for a hunting lodge. He was unaware of the gruesome activities carried out in the hunting lodge, which eventually landed him in the bad books of the FBI. Bannister was arrested and imprisoned, and he had to serve time in jail for a decade, as per the Racketeer Influenced And Corrupt oOrganizations Act (RICO).

The actual story begins five years into Bannister’s term, when he gets divorced and loses his son. He is also disbarred from his profession. However, things seem to take a turn for Bannister with the murder case of a federal judge named Raymond Fogletree. The FBI are unable to crack the case and require his help. Bannister knew a great deal about the murdered judge, including the person who killed him and the things present in the judge’s safe. However, Bannister is willing to help the FBI on one condition only, which is to let him free.

Halfway through this book, Bannister comes to the point where he begins to dictate terms to the FBI. However, he is far from the kind of revenge he desires to take on the government for imprisoning him for a crime he did not commit. Will the FBI be able to crack this mysterious case and release Bannister? This book answers such questions and more.

The Racketeer was released on the 23rd of October, 2012, with an initial print of 1.5 million copies, remaining at the top of bestseller lists for several weeks. Fox 2000 and New Regency have decided to launch a movie adaptation of this novel, with the director Daniel Espinosa.
