Theodore Boone is back in a new adventure, and the stakes are higher than ever....
When his best friend, April, disappears from her bedroom in the middle of the night, no one, not even Theo Boone - who knows April better than anyone - has answers. As fear ripples through his small hometown and the police hit dead ends, it's up to Theo to use his legal knowledge and investigative skills to chase down the truth and save April.
Filled with the kind of pause-resistant suspense that has made John Grisham a number-one international best seller and the undisputed master of the legal thriller, Theodore Boone's trials and triumphs will keep listeners guessing until the very end.
Crack another case with Theodore Boone.

Addicted to books
the Narrator ruined the book for me. I barely got past the first chapter. I couldn't stand his voice and the way he read the book. If you can't listen to the narrator then what ever he saying is not coming across in a way that helps you get into the story! you authors should be concerned about the person reading the book to your fans. Please think again about who you choose!
Did not read the print version.
Just the rest in the series. It was a little corny, but I can understand it.
When Judge got involved.
I like the characters, Ike, especially.
These are great teen and pre-teen books about law and the justice system. They hold the attention of the young people and while a tale is spun, they may actually learn some things about our judicial system. Great to read or listen, clean and appropriate for the young audience.
Old, tired member of the sandwich generation. Waiting to just get to heaven!!
These books are by John Grisham and really not much more needs to be said. I love Theo and his care for others. Uncle Ike is just an all around great fellow. Theo's parents are cool and is Judge. These are a quick listen, involved, books. I truly wish there were more in the series.
This is redundant but my review is the same for all four of the series Theodore Boone books
John Grisham, with his Theo Boone series, has proven again that he's a master of the legal genre, and that he can even make it fun for younger readers.
Richard Thomas does a good job of reading, without trying to fake a bunch of character voices.
Artist & Journeyman Composter
In the first of the series "Kid Lawyer", used to the many twists, turns, false trails of the adult mysteries I so love, the ending was too easy to see. Now I'm more used to Grisham's writing style, am okay with the way he handles the denouement, and trust his clues. It is clear and straightforward plotting; you don't have to worry or get tense. In this, the second of the series, the author picks up with Theo's best friend, whom we metalbeit a bit too briefly, in "Kid Lawyer", April in Paris, as she likes to call herself, an artist in a very dysfunctional family situation. They talk or text nearly everyday. Theo is a good listener, and believes in her, and trusts in the importance of friendship even when he would like to help her, but can't. Suddenly, she turns up missing, and no one, even hersomewhat scatty mother can find where she might be. Watch Theo's black sheep uncle;he has moments of real brilliance, and though he's made mistakes that took him from astellar career into a present come-down job of tax preparation, he is a figure now of practical wisdom, and self- acceptance,who accepts the consequences of his actions and lives pretty comfortably with them. He is also deeply committed to his family, and willing to go far out of his way to help Theo solve the crime. Oh, one feature that is becoming a hallmark, and an hilarious one, is Theo's volunteer lawyerly work in Animal Court. The first one was a nice touch, and colorfully amusing, but this one is hilarious, and I'm looking forward to this appearance in every story! I do recommend starting at the beginning with the series for best familiarity with the characters, plot continuities, andfuller enjoyment. I shall continue myself!
I am not sure who would enjoy this. I was waiting for a twist, a plot, some excitment and it was so dissapointing.
Yes, but I'd have to really read other readers comments. I rely heavily on them
The narration was fine with what he had to work with.
A real dud for a mystery novel.
