John Grisham’s latest novel veers far away from his typical courtroom settings to provide information about an alternative cure for cancer — and he thinks it’s so vital, the book is free for everyone.

The Tumor,” Grisham says, is the most important book of his career.

“I write escapist popular fiction that entertains,” Grisham explained in an interview. “It’s entertainment. It doesn’t pretend to be literature or anything else. But ‘The Tumor’ has the potential to one day save or prolong millions of lives.”

Against the advice of his agent, editor, and publisher, Grisham has now offered the book free of charge. Its unlikely hero is a non-invasive medical device: focused ultrasound. Employed for the treatment of cancer and other diseases, focused ultrasound “uses energy beams to destroy diseased tissues,” reported the Washington Post.

University of Virginia neurosurgeon and friend, Neal Kassell, convinced Grisham to join the Focused Ultrasound Foundation, which he’d formed in 2006, about eight years ago. When Kassell pleaded with Grisham to help raise money for the foundation’s ongoing research, the author balked.

But after studying focused ultrasound and finding serious potential for the treatment method to aid millions of people, Grisham decided there was a better way to help. Thus, “The Tumor” was born.
