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?

    "Good story"

    Good story. Some of the twists in the movie were better, but good overall.

    "Sometimes You Have to Go Backwards to Find the Real John Grisham"

    Recently I 'read' Mr. Grisham's latest book, The Whistleblower, and was so disappointed that my review asked "who wrote this?"

    I wanted so badly to have a Grisham tale that was well written - tightly woven together, a storyline that was believable, rich characters and a genius plot. I knew most of his earlier books had that, so I listened to Runaway Jury again. I have both read and listened to this book many times since it was first published, and find it incredibly nuanced each time.

    And then there is the greatest narrator of all time; the late Frank Mueller. RIP, Frank.

    THIS Grisham story will not disappoint you. It is one of the reasons Mr. Grisham became a household name.

    Story
    "A fairly good book"
    Would you listen to The Runaway Jury again? Why?

    Yes, maybe later down the road, if there's nothing else in my library. I must admit, I didn't listen as close as I could have, so I would need to place more concentration on the book. It didn't really hold my attention.


    If you’ve listened to books by John Grisham before, how does this one compare?

    I had just finished another narrated by Frank Muller, and it was SOOO GOOD! So I turned right around and downloaded this one, but, sorry to say, was not nearly as good.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When, Frank said " we hope you've enjoyed this production"


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Skip this book and try another.

    "Frank Miller is simply great"

    This book was brought to life by the great performance of Frank... It goes without saying that John Grisham never dissappoints, though I have to say it's not his best but I can't all be gold, right?

    Story
    "Not as exciting as most Grisham."

    While The Runaway Jury is a very good book, it just didn't have the exciting plot lines that most Grisham books have for me. The story was quite predictable, and, well, a little dry. Frank Muller did his best to infuse life and energy into the book, and I could listen to him read anything, but this one just wasn't up to the usual standards that I am accustomed to from Grisham.

    "Got a little tedious"

    The story went on a bit too long. I have spent a lot of time in Biloxi and have never heard it pronounced the way the narrator pronounced it. That was rather distracting for me. Glad it's over and took the twist I thought it would. Have read enough of Grisham books to know there is always a twist at the end.

    "One of Grisham's best"

    Grisham gives us a look into the way trials with big money involved could take place. I know the book is fiction but it makes one wonder if jury tampering is common. Frank Muller did an amazing job with the narration. Would highly recommend the book to my friends.

    "Very engaging audio book"
    What made the experience of listening to The Runaway Jury the most enjoyable?

    i liked the narrator's voice and I thought he did a great job with the various character voices.


    What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brought an energy to the reading that i may have not felt on my own


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no, but that does not mean it was not engaging. there is a lot to digest in this book and a lot of characters. i liked taking the time to think about what I had heard before moving on to the next section.
