    It was a "million-dollar bullet," a sniper shot delivered from over a mile away. Its victim was a United States citizen, targeted by the United States government, and assassinated in the Bahamas. The nation's most renowned investigator and forensics expert, Lincoln Rhyme, is drafted to investigate. As details of the case start to emerge, the he discovers that not all is what it seems. When a deadly, knife-wielding assassin begins systematically eliminating the witnesses, Lincoln's investigation turns into a chilling battle of wits against a cold-blooded killer.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Deaver should be a bit more diligent in picking the reader for his audio books. The latest "talent" left too much to be desired. His past readers/performers did a great job instilling the characters in my mind. This new genre of 3 readers is a joke. It makes it hard to listen to and hard to visualize. Rymes sounds like a grade school teacher and Sachs is a joke. Go back to one reader, preferably one you used in the past and dump the triplets. They are horrible.

    John Grisham returns to Ford County, Mississippi, the setting of his immensely popular first novel, A Time to Kill. This wholly surprising collection of stories reminds us once again why Grisham is America's favorite storyteller.

    "Great Stories, Questionable Performance"
    Overall

    I love John Grisham. I have listened to every one of his books. The stories were typical JG and I found them very entertaining. The reader, (JG) was NOT what I have come to expect. Stephen King once said that books are best expressed when read by the author. JG should ignore this, stick to writing, and allow the professionals to read. His efforts detracted from and otherwise good book.
