Number One bestseller John Grisham returns with his most suspenseful thriller yet.
Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of the USA only four active federal judges have been murdered.
Judge Raymond Fawcett just became number five.
His body was found in the small basement of a lakeside cabin he had built himself and frequently used on weekends. When he did not show up for a trial on Monday morning, his law clerks panicked, called the FBI, and in due course the agents found the crime scene. There was no forced entry, no struggle, just two dead bodies - Judge Fawcett and his young secretary.
I did not know Judge Fawcett, but I know who killed him, and why.
I am a lawyer, and I am in prison.
It's a long story.

A very well written story with all sorts of twists and turns. There were times that I knew what was going to happen next but the move after that was totally unexpected. An excellent read and an excellent narrator. Its a huge pity that the other books read by JD Jackson aren't to my taste - he has such a sexy voice
"Great summer listening"
Long convoluted twisting story that beautifully resolves itself.
The police laughing
Nathan's annoying voice suited the character perfectly.
Not possible to listen to in one sitting.
I don't know how many times i shouted "Why is he doing this?"
I thought this was an excellent story well told. I loved the cat and mouse twists and turns. The narration was excellent as usual. I have yet to be disappointed with a Grisham novel.
I enjoyed this book although wish I had listened to an abridged version, I think it would've been better moving a bit 'faster'. The story line is good with a good twist it just took to long to get there.
YES: it is a brilliant audio book. The narrator is excellent.
His first outing on his own. It made you feel you were there.
Very natural, brilliant narrator.
I don't really understand what is meant by this question. At 69 I am fairly technophobic!
I really enjoyed this audio book and I think it even surpasses The Client.MORE PLEASE
"Good but not great"
It definitely is a good book but sadly not as good as other books by John Grisham. While the story line is clear, easy to understand and well put together, I didn't have that "I can't stop listening to it" feeling. It was too easy to just put it down and concentrate on something else. I had expected more but that is my own fault for having set expectations in the first place.
A good story but a little long winded in places. But an interesting ending which I wasn't expecting!
This is the John Grisham story teller I grew to love in the old days, until he lost his way with recent books. although not court room based the story line was brill and well read.
I think the story line is very good, I am listening to more John Grisham now!
"Racketeer - John Grisham"
Extremely clever - good twist at the end - if you liked the Shawshank Redemption you will love this
