Thank goodness Grisham has realized that he should write about what he knows best--legal thrillers. This isn't just a rerun of typical legal thriller plots; it's better, deeper, and has a different type of protagonist. He lays out most of the groundwork and clues well, but the ending caught me by surprise. You can't go into this with any preconceptions--he knocks them all down. A great listen, even though I wasn't sure at first that I liked the narrator. I soon realized that the voice did a great job of personifying the protagonist.
The story was so contrived that I lost interest in the characters. I found myself not caring at all about their actions.
Yes, I generally enjoy Grisham novels.
None of them. The performance was good, but the story was tedious.
An abridged version might be more tolerable. The scenes shift so often that it is truly unbelievable.
Audible started me reading fiction again. What a treat to have professional actors narrating a book I may not have had the time to "read".
Very boring and depressing. Couldn't get past part one.
Written a different book!
Can't blame him. Story was hard to narrate. Read like a textbook.
Any and all.
Very disappointing. Not what I expected from John Grisham.
The story written by another author that writes with intrigue, adventure and surprises.
No, the narrator's voice puts the listener to sleep
All, its to long and boring.
An actual plot.
from M.B.'s initial release to the very end.
If you have already read the partner & the bretheren, don't wast your time with this one.
Tell us about yourself!
Being a devout Grisham fan, I have high expectations. As usual, it took some ground work, but once the action and story started to unfold.....it was captivating! I cared about the characters and was intrigued and entertained as it all unfolded.
I have read all of Grisham's adult books and this is one of the best. It has the usual twists and turns but this time you aren't in on the outcome for quite awhile.
Banister/Baldwin is the usual Grisham intelligent confident protagonist.
Even timbre. He sounds like a story teller.
I just wanted it to keep going so I would know what happened.
As always John Grisham has woven an intricate story, yet made it interesting and easy to follow. the main character is a brilliant strategist it is his telling of the story that weaves intrigued page by page. thoroughly enjoyed it.
