I've read 1000s of books, and this rates down there with TERRIBLE! This is the first time I've felt cheated when I bought a book. I've read Le Carre before, and this had to be an amateur stand-in writing this book and using his name!!
I couldn't wait to finish this book, not because it was so good but because it was so BAD! The characters are narcissistic and underdeveloped. They don't develop throughout the story...they just drift through the book. I kept waiting for an epiphany, but none came. Save your money.
This is a good book. I couldn't put it down. I found myself listening in very strange places...while making supper, grocery shopping, even in the restroom! Do yourself a favor and read it!
I was hoping Grisham was back to his former glory, but alas...it is not to be. J. Clay Carter is a flat, predictable character. This is the last Grisham book I will invest my money in.
Different kind of story for Patterson...and well worth the wait. Keep up the medieval good work!!
