    Kyle McAvoy grew up in his father's small-town law office in York, Pennsylvania. He excelled in college, was elected editor-in-chief of The Yale Law Journal, and his future has limitless potential. But Kyle has a secret, a dark one, an episode from college that he has tried to forget. The secret, though, falls into the hands of the wrong people, and Kyle is forced to take a job he doesn't want, even if it's a job most law students can only dream about....

    Overall

    Great beginning - really appreciated the description of the horrid routine of the'big time' law firm associate...
    story line/plot is somewhat flat and not particularly complicated - lacks thrilling impending-danger moments
    Grisham's endings (as in "The Appeal" also)are beginning to dissappoint an avid fiction reader -
    much too realistic and not gratifying!

    Camp David, USA. A birthday party turns into a nightmare when a child is snatched after the celebrations. The First Lady enlists the services of Sean King and Michelle Maxwell to bring the child home safely. But she and King share a past. Years ago he saved her then senator husband from political disaster. And this may not be all that passed between them. With Michelle still battling her own demons, the two are pushed to the limit, with forces aligned on all sides against them.

    Overall

    What a huge disappointment. I endured the whole very slow-paced reading interspersed with ridiculous musical strains ; a painful experience.
    An incredible major plot hampered by a boring, 'go nowhere' subplot.
    Weak, weak, weak character development, lack of suspense and no surprises
