    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.

    Overall

    I was very excited to buy the new John Grisham novel. I loved his earlier legal thrillers and coming back to this familiar reader/narrator is like visiting an old friend.

    I still enjoyed the flow of Grisham's writing in spite of what seemed to be a liberal bias and some of the characters coming off more as caricatures than real people.

    What really threw me, though, was the way this book ended...well, sort of ended. I found myself shouting aloud, "No! This can't possibly be the end of the book! Are you kidding me?" It was so depressing and lacked real closure.

    I am so disappointed. Mr. Grisham, perhaps in later copies you can add an epilogue that contains a REAL ending.

    John Hart creates a literary thriller that is as suspenseful as it is poignant, a riveting murder mystery layered beneath the southern drawl of a humble North Carolina lawyer. When Work Pickens finds his father murdered, the investigation pushes a repressed family history to the surface and he sees his own carefully constructed facade begin to crack.

    Overall

    I absolutely loved this book. It was so well written and suspenseful. The end was a complete surprise and the epilogue pulled together everything I wanted to know about the characters.

    I hope this author writes another book soon. I'll be first in line to purchase it!

    Oh, and the reader was excellent, too.
