Grisham has gotten at least one foot off his liberal soapbox, swallowed some of his cynicism, and written a thoughtful and perceptive "feel good" story. The author has crawled inside the mind of Theo Boone, a generous and very precocious thirteen year old in love with the law and passionate about helping people. He just did not expect to be involved in catching a murderer. Theodore Boone will steal your heart whether you are thirteen or thirty-nine! When I need to relax, I re-listen to several chapters. Write a sequel, John.
While I have not read the print version, this narrator does a superb job of crawling behind the police dog's eyes—with inflection and cadence. His voice is spectacular!
There is no gratuitous barrage of obsenities in this book to distract from the detail of plot development.
MacLeod Andrews MUST be a devotee of intelligent dog breeds. You can hear the admiration in his voice.
I laughed, cried and cheered!
Please write more stories of Scott and Maggie!!!
Mrs. P's latest adventure is a kaleidiscope of adventures so out of the ordinary, they almost become a distraction-almost. Veryentertaining for a long drive.
While I like the main character, the ending (solution) to the murder is disgusting. I felt I had been "had".
As a fan of Martini, this book has too much action that is not feasible. The Judge and Compelling Evidence are so believeable. Not so in Guardian of Lies. Martini is at his best game with courtroom drama!
