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.

I am an avid eclectic reader
I enjoyed the first book in this series Theodore Boone: The Kid Lawyer so decided to listen to this one also. Glad I did. Richard Thomas does a good job narrating the story. This story is advertised for children but adults will enjoy it also. It is a short story that leaves one feeling good. It is nice to see a 13 year old with such a focus on what he wants to do with his life. Enjoyed the scenes in animal court in both books. This one particularly was funny. You will enjoy this book for a 4 hour trip with the family.
I just see now that other reviewers have noted this is a kids story. Huh! Maybe that's the reason I didn't care for it -- I don't recall seeing, anywhere on Audible, that this was intended for kids. If I'd known that, I wouldn't have bought it, that's for sure. Anyway, the official blurb calls the book "pause-resistant" which is a major joke. It's a total sleeper -- not a bad little story, I guess. Just that in the scheme of things, it doesn't matter. There's nothing to keep you listening other than inertia -- and the fact that you paid for it. It's not bad. It's just ....... nothing. If there is an upside, it was listening to Richard Thomas read, and reminding myself, over and over, how much I enjoyed the Walton's, back then. Welcome back, John-Boy. That part was fun. (Overall? Save your credit)
Our family enjoys Theodore Boone, boy lawyer. We hope that Mr.Grisham will continue to write more of these stories. We especially enjoy seeing the courtroom from Theo's perspective.
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.
