    It's the start of Hollywood on Hudson, and New York City is swept up in the glamour. Every night, the red carpet rolls out for movie stars arriving at premieres in limos; the most exclusive restaurants close for private parties for wealthy producers and preeminent directors; and thousands of fans gather with the paparazzi, hoping to catch a glimpse of the most famous and beautiful faces in the world. With this many celebrities in town, special task force NYPD Red is on high alert - and they can't afford to make a single mistake.

    Ann M. Lambert says: "one of the best, if not the best audio books ever"
    "Incredible. Are you kidding?"

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who can completely suspend their sense of reality, to believe that the NYPD would let 2 individuals handle such an important matter with virtually no support or oversight.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Hard to say.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Pick another book.


    What character would you cut from NYPD Red?

    The two leads.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Charles says: "Eh."
    "John Grisham should be ashamed."

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Uncharacteristic of John Grisham's work, this is at best a potboiler which in my view, was a waste of my time & money.


    What was most disappointing about John Grisham’s story?

    What's the point?


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of J.D. Jackson?

    No recommendations.


    What character would you cut from The Racketeer?

    I would cut the book, not a character.


    Any additional comments?

    Shame on you, John. I expected more from your earlier books.

    By the way, why do you bother to practice law? Obviously you don't think much of lawyers.
