    In a crowded courtroom in Mississippi, a jury returns a shocking verdict against a chemical company accused of dumping toxic waste into a small town's water supply, causing the worst "cancer cluster" in history. The company appeals to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will one day either approve the verdict or reverse it.

    I was not going to write a review on "The Appeal" but after reading the 2 reviews posted, I had to post a review of my own. If I had not read any other Grisham novels, I would have given this book a better review but I have read them all. The Partner, The Last Juror, A Painted House, The Bleachers, all had a twist of difference from one another. However, this book was "so much fluff" to me. John Grisham can stretch further and dig deeper. I would say this was like an author's 1st novel instead of his most recent out of a list in the double digits being published. "A Time To Kill" set the bar very high. I think a Jr. High english teacher, an U.S. Government teacher, & a Phys. Ed. instructor, could have pulled "The Appeal" together with a deeper character development in an collaborated effort than what I heard here. I am a Grisham fan. I just expected more.

    Escape is a classic encounter between the forces of good and evil in human form that asks, and answers, questions of how to deal with supposedly "God-inspired" acts of murder and mayhem. In a riveting trial of garish courtroom confrontations, newly elected New York District Attorney Karp battles the "insanity of the insanity defense", as he tries to make Jessica Campbell, a rabble-rousing political science professor at NYU, pay for the murder of her three children. While Campbell claims that God told her to "send her three children to Him," it is up to Karp to prove that she was fully aware of the nature and consequences of her actions.

    This was a very involved book with 3 plots weaving together into what I thought was a wonderfully done novel. It was deep & moving and made me think about many issues. I enjoyed the book and the narrator did a wonderfull job. The characters flowed nicely and I thought the narrator was easy to follow. I will look forward to the next Butch Karp novel as he and his family and their characters and assorted friends are always up to someting interesting.

    Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a 25-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, best-selling novelist, and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and "bools". Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went, a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive, or give him the ideas he needed in order to live.

    I cannot put words here for a proper review. I don't believe any self proclaimed writer or author or reader could do "Lisey's Story" justice. The only person with the talent to adequately review this story would be Stephen King himself. I step out of this review humbly and relinquish the remainder of my available characters left to the Master. . . The King himself. Thank you for a wonderful spell bound 18 hours and 55 minutes.

    A troubled young woman breezes into Detective Robicheaux's hometown of New Iberia, Louisiana. She happens to be the daughter of his friend: a friend he witnessed gunned down in a bank robbery, a tragedy that forever changed Robicheaux's life.

    This book was wonderful. James Lee Burke has the best way of weaving sights & sounds & smells together that you will wonder in your older yrs if your memories are books you have read or actual events that took place in your life.
    Thank you for a wonderfull 12 hrs.

    As the director of the U.S. Army's Central Identification Lab in Hawaii (CILHI), Robert Dean "Kel" McKelvey has made a career solving some of the country's most complex identification cases. Though fast approaching emotional meltdown, Kel now faces his thorniest case yet: the recovery of Jimmie Carl Trimble, a soldier from Arkansas who died a hero's death in Vietnam 40 years ago.

    Thomas Holland Rocks!!

    This book pulls you in immediately. The people in this book are a pleasure to get to know. I hope Thomas Holland does not take a big vacation now because he should be sent to his room to KEEP ON WRITING!!
    If his sense of humor in life is as cool as his sense of humor in writing - He is the life of the party.
    I listen to MANY audio books and this one I move to the top of the list. Thank you for the mental stimulation & the belly laughs. My husband kept asking me what I was listening to on my ipod because all he could hear was me sometimes gasping & most of the time laughing as I listened to this story as I worked around the house. Can't wait for the next release!!
