A retired businessman and widower (it's just me and the cat), I keep active with many diverse projects at which I can almost always be found with my earbuds in, listening to an audio book.
As a rabid Grisham fan I am very sorry to say that this book is not up to Mr Grisham's usual standards. Predictable plot. That the only mistery in the story is left unresolved is the only surprise furnished in this book. I waited the entire book for something exciting or engrossing. This is just a sermon against the death penalty which is always expected from this author. What is not expected is that in this book he gives us very little else. If you have read many of his books you will find the characters, dialog, and plot all very familiar. I suggest you try another title. Almost everything else he has written is excellent. This is the first time I have ever been disappointed by John Grisham.
Not at all.

This book was way too long and really drags on...might be better abriged version as the story was solid but never really developed.
Normally I find Grisham's books to be intelligent, intriguing and great reads but this one drones on with hours of minor details that just are not necessary. Its the first Grisham book I am thinking about returning to Audible. I feel terrible writing a bad review of a Grisham book but I just cant finish this one.
If you are looking for a legal drama or suspense...there is none!
The author builds a crescendo by introducing new characters to foreseen conclusion, but ultimately the story falls flat!
If all the characters were indeed author has done a great job...otherwise it sounds like just copied and pasted from several newspaper articles
Going years back I read many of John Greshams books and really enjoyed them
The last three books I have gotten I have not enjoyed it all they seem very slow and just plod along
It's hard to believe the same person is writing these books
You've heard the saying three strikes and you're out and that's the way I am with John Grisham
Listens to whatever keeps me thrilled, and then surprise the living life out of me :)
I enjoyed it .. but it left a lot to be desired.. not the ending that fits such a book.. the narrator was fantastic though ..
