    Story

    This story revolves around Robert Tarza, a successful and truly snobby 60 year old attorney who finds himself under suspicion of murder. But unlike most central characters, you don't have to identify or even like this man to enjoy his tale. The reason is the astounding characters that surround him, his 30 year old protege and one of the most formidable defense attorneys in L.A.

    Not only is he in deep trouble with the law, his case is further complicated by his own arrogant and naive insistence (and against his defense attorney's advice) on investigating his own case. Worse still, his young protege is a brilliant litigator with no criminal experience who insists on being the lead attorney of the defense team. The tensions between the equally brilliant legal minds Tarza and his team leads to a great deal of humor in an ever more mysterious murder.

    The trial sequences are truly entertaining as they are suspenseful.

    The narration requires the voice of a snob, an impertinent and sexy protege, a frustrated Latino defense attorney, a wise if snarky female judge in prominent roles. He delivers in spades.

    Worth your time? It certainly was for me!

    On the 85th floor of a glittering high-rise in Los Angeles, Robert Tarza steps into the lobby of the Marbury Marfan law firm to discover his partner Simon Rafer lying in a pool of blood - an ornate dagger plunged into his back. Robert had worked with Simon for decades, and their relationship was fraught with conflict. But he never imagined he would wind up as the prime suspect for his colleague’s murder. As the evidence stacks up against him with frightening speed, he quickly falls from his respected position to that of a criminal dragged through the tabloids.

    Story

    The probate of a will suspenseful? There's no foul play, no ex-wives, no violence, only lawyers in abundance. Suspenseful? I was on the edge of seat throughout the entire novel.

    First, let me say the narration was difficult due to the deep southern dialect, yet masterfully handled by Mr. Beck. I was born in South Carolina, raised in North Carolina, and married a girl from Montomery Alabama. I can assure you the deeper south the more pronounced and exaggerated people's accents become. You may be tempted to think he went to far, but from my experience he was dead on accurate. It's important because people are judged by their accents down here. There's an eloquent drawl by the educated southerner that we all recognize and appreciate. The nuances are numerous to a sensitive ear. I was more than pleased with Mr. Beck's effort.

    Without going more into the story, I can say the characters are engaging, intriguing and hugely entertaining on their own. This is my favorite characteristic of any Grisham novel.

    If you are looking for a suspenseful novel with incredible characters, Sycamore Row is the book for you!

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

    I purchased this book on sale and boy am I glad I did. It is read by Dennis Boutsikaris, who slipped my mind when listing my top 5 performers. I love his work because he draws you into every conversation as if you are right there.

    The main reason I am thrilled to have read this book is the incredible research Patterson reveals on the Jewish/Palestinian conflict without prejudice. CNN's Jeff Greenberg interviews the author at the end where you will learn, (no spoiler here), that many of the conversations involving participants in the ageless conflict come from real people.

    It is ultimately a realistic mystery that has many twists and turns.

    Story

    Boy can this author write. I can’t believe after doing so many books, he still comes up with such a good story, and well done, and entertaining. He does NOT use artificial devices to create mystery and suspense. He does NOT use flashbacks, jumping around in time, stopping scenes in the middle to create temporary cliffhangers. There’s no stupidity or characters doing things out of character to create conflict. It’s just a good story, in chronological order, good characters, good dialogue, and I loved the COMPLETE ENDING. It wrapped up well, questions were answered. I had a smile on my face all during the last chapter. Yes that means it was a happy ending. YAY!

    I mention things he does NOT do because I am tired of other authors using those gimmicks. And in my opinion the best writing does not use them. And Connelly should be a role model for any suspense author (including romantic suspense which I love but frequently is not well done).

    Some fun things in this story: I was intrigued with a scene where two characters were making their way into an unspoken agreement, acting it out on the fly, in front of others, without letting others know what they were doing, and also unsure of it themselves. I chuckled at Mickey’s comments about his clip on ties. I liked this neat character Legal Segal.

    I normally do not like first person stories. But Connelly’s I do.

    One minor complaint. Someone hired or forced Sewel to stab someone. I wanted to know more about that, who and how.

    The narrator Peter Giles was very good.

    Story

    Yay! John Grisham is back! Several recent books have had complaints. This book doesn’t have the suspense and thriller of his early books like “The Firm” or “The Client,” but it’s fun, entertaining, and engaging. It’s about people who don’t have much money or smarts and the lawyers in that world. For much of the book I was eager to know what was going to happen. Also, Grisham gave us a good ending. In some of his earlier books, I and other reviewers complained that his endings were too abrupt. We wanted more. He did that here. I loved the epilogue letting us know what happened down the road.

    The book had a simplistic feel, but I was ok with that. The characters were colorful, but I felt they were a little lacking when compared to the colorful, eccentric, and unique characters in “The Rainmaker” - maybe because the author went into more depth with some of “The Rainmaker” characters.

    I loved David’s attitude. He’s only making $12,000 a year plus half of what he brings in, yet he is happy and confident that he will be able to support his family in the future. His clients are people in the lower socioeconomic groups, and he cares about them. He’s happy with his new work.

    The ending was fun, feel good, and put a smile on my face.

    THE NARRATOR:
    I miss Frank Muller who did such a great job with many other Grisham books. But this narrator Dennis Boutsikaris did a fine job.

    "Not much suspense, but a good story"

    Story

    This is not as powerful as some of the author’s other books, but it’s a fine story. His most popular books had more suspense and thriller. This is just a fictional story about lawyers and heirs to an estate. It’s different. It’s enjoyable and above average because of the author’s skill. He’s good at creating fun-to-watch characters. I chuckled at some of the wry comments. For example, Nate’s life is so miserable and he’s feeling such hangover pain, that he’s in a fog about the dangers around him. It’s like who cares if he has to fend off alligators. It’s just another inconvenience. After one event he says in his dry uncaring monotone “oh, I’m still alive?” His reactions and acceptance of jungle threats were humorous in a dry, satirical way. In addition to alligators he sees anacondas, piranhas, rats as big as dogs, and mosquitos. Later Nate suffered through dengue fever. Josh saw him and said “You look awful. You’re skinny as a rail.” Nate said “You want to lose fifteen pounds, find the right mosquito.” On another topic, I admired and liked the character Josh - smart, competent, but not perfect.

    Maybe 40% of the story is lawyers for the grandchildren scheming to get money. The rest of the story is about Nate with some Rachel. I don’t want to give away too much, but I enjoyed Nate’s change. Many reviewers complained about the ending saying it was rushed and incomplete. I agree. I would have liked more. But it was acceptable to me. One part was a little sad, but my overall feeling at the end was “kind of nice.”
    NARRATOR:
    The narrator Frank Muller was fabulous. He’s very entertaining with the various personalities, especially with Nate’s attitude and comments.

    Story

    3 ½ stars. This did not have the typical bad guy killer. I liked the unusual plot and motivations. I saw the movie several years ago and I remembered who did it, which was the same as in the book. But other things were very different between the movie and the book. During the first third, I was impatient for things to happen. It seemed too drawn out, getting to know various characters: lawyers, cops, wife, lover. Then when Rusty was indicted for the murder of Carolyn I was frustrated. I was anxious about the ending. Would it be happy or not? I didn’t want to invest another ten hours, just to be let down and depressed at the end. So I read the last chapter which summarized many of the details, and I was relieved. I liked the ending for Rusty. Then I went back to where I left off at his indictment and listened to the rest of the book. My enjoyment from that point on was much better than when I was worrying about the ending. The last two-thirds is mostly about evidence and watching the judge and the lawyers on each side. At times it was exciting. Sometimes it was slow. For someone like me, I’d recommend reading the last chapter (40) first, then go to the beginning and read the whole book. As a result I paid more attention to key characters. Since I knew certain things would happen, I was eagerly anticipating those events thinking “when’s this going to happen?”

    There were two scenes describing torture and brutality which bothered me. I wish the author had NOT included them. They were about other cases the prosecutor worked on. One a small boy tortured by his mother. Another a man put in prison, raped, and suffered permanent damage to his body.

    The narrator Edward Hermann was fine.

    Ending: Good enough for those who want happy endings.
    Genre: legal mystery.

  • "JOHN GRISHAM IS BAAACK!!!"

    My prayers have been answered. One of the best legal thriller writers has found his groove! Grisham spent 10 years drifting around the writing landscape and now has a great legal GPS. The story revisits one of his stellar characters and legal teams, telling a tale of holographic wills (didn't know what the term was, but they are handwritten wills -- legal in some states), greedy relatives (we all have those), personal secrets, and bad acts of predecessors. The quirky characters are back and legal tensions are writ through the entire tale. Bravo!

It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients.
