    In 1970, one of Mississippi's more colorful weekly newspapers, The Ford County Times, went bankrupt. To the surprise and dismay of many, ownership was assumed by a 23 year-old college dropout, named Willie Traynor. The future of the paper looked grim until a young mother was brutally raped and murdered by a member of the notorious Padgitt family. Willie Traynor reported all the gruesome details, and his newspaper began to prosper.

    "A good book, but not Grisham's best..."
    Overall

    I enjoyed the the book but the plot loses steam about half way through the story. The mystery is wrapped up nicely in the final pages of the book, but in a very predictable way. The character development is good but the main character's personality seems to change in the middle of the story along with his wardrobe, neither making much sense. Many of the more notable supporting characters from Grisham's other books appear again in The Last Juror, making for an entertaining supporting cast. Michael Beck does a wonderful job in defining the unique southern characters through his voice. Even with the weak plot, this book is worth a listen if you enjoy John Grisham.
