Critical Acclaim for the Undisputed Master of the Legal Thriller
With every new book I appreciate John Grisham a little more, for his feisty critiques of the legal system, his compassion for the underdog, and his willingness to strike out in new directions. Entertainment Weekly
John Grisham is exceptionally good at what he does indeed, right now in this country, nobody does it better . . . Grisham s books are also smart, imaginative, and funny, populated by complex interesting people, written by a man who is driven not merely by the desire to entertain but also by genuine (if understated) outrage at human cupidity and venality. Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post
The secrets of Grisham s success are no secret at all. There are two of them: his pacing, which ranges from fast to breakneck, and his theme little guy takes on big conspiracy with the little guy getting the win in the end. Time

A legal literary legend. USA Today"
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.
