Publisher's Summary

In Biloxi, Mississippi, a landmark tobacco trial with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake begins routinely, then swerves mysteriously off course. The jury is behaving strangely, and at least one juror is convinced he's being watched. Soon they have to be sequestered. Then a tip from an anonymous young woman suggests she is able to predict the jurors' increasingly odd behavior. Is the jury somehow being manipulated, or even controlled? If so, by whom? And, more important, why?

    "A very enjoyable & addictive listen"

    This was my first John Grisham novel mostly because I have not been a fan of legal dramas, but this book I thoroughly enjoyed and I have already purchased his latest book. The book starts off a little slow but this does not last long because as I got into the book I found that I hard time leaving it. He developed the characters very well to the point that I felt that I knew these people and that I was alternate juror or sitting with the attorney's as they planned the case as it progressed. The book never gets boring as there is always something going on with either the jury and some of its querky people or one side or the other of the attorney's to keep the action and intrigue going. Frank Muller did a great job of narrating as he had a great voice for this type of book and had a different voice for each character as well.

    "GREAT BOOK"

    I don't know how anyone could call this book boring. If I had not been driving while listening to this book I would have been rolling on the floor with laughter. Great book from begining to end.

    "Very enjoyable and easy to listen to"

    This was a terrific and engrossing story that unfolded nicely. Once I got used to the way Frank Muller ended many of his sentences on a high note, I enjoyed his reading. I couldn?t wait to unravel the story each day. A couple of times I even took a quick listen when I found myself with some short waiting time. It was easy to keep this story line straight and to pick it up for short or long periods. I also had the text, and in this case the audio followed it perfectly. Sometimes I reread a chapter. I found I recalled it all, which surprised me a bit. I had thought that maybe, while driving, I might have lost focus at times and missed some of the story. I waited to finish the book before I saw the movie. I couldn?t avoid the ads, however, and immediately put the actors faces on their characters in my mind?s eye as I listed to the audio book.

    "Fantastic!!"

    Frank Muller at his level best! Download this title. The absolute pinnacle of audiobook performances! Excellent story also. It is centered around tobacco litigation and has nothing to do with guns. Hollywood liberals screwed around with the storyline for the movie version (no surprise).

    If I'm not mistaken, Frank Muller won some kind of award for this narration. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Wonderful book. I grew up during this time."
    What did you love best about The Runaway Jury?

    That I could put myself in the book. I am from Biloxi and the parts describing the area I knew and walked the area myself. There is a part in the book speaks of the Waffle House eatings pancakes.. Waffle House doesn't sell pancakes...guess some readers might not have caught that but again I lived there. William Denton, who John G uses to make sure his legal description are correct, Has, or had, his office close to where I worked as a legal assistant.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Marley. although her voice tried to make it sound like a woman. Also Easter and Finch.
    Pretty savvy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All are favorite. But the part about the pancakes had to be the best.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed at most of the book. Several 'go get um' from my mouth as well. Read the book along time ago and just couldn't put it down, but having someone read it is so much better.


    Any additional comments?

    I just wish they would have made the movie of the book and not have changed it to gun control trial.

    "One of Grisham's Best"

    My favorite Grisham novels seem to be the ones where his dry sarcasm comes through. There is some of that in this book, so I enjoyed it. And even though Frank Muller isn't one of my favorite readers, his style works to bring across the dry wit and sarcasm.

    This book is typical of Grisham's better novels.

    "Great John Grisham Story"

    An fascinating behind the scenes look at those involved in prosecuting and defending an important trial of tobacco producers and cigarette manufacturers, and the of the jurors chosen to hear the case!
    The reader Frank Muller is exceptionally good also. An excellent listen.
