Reviews

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

"The law, by its nature, creates drama, and a new Grisham promises us an inside look at the dirty machineries of process and power, with plenty of an entertainment." - Los Angeles Times

"John Grisham is about as good a storyteller as we've got in the United States these days."--The New York Times Book Review

"Grisham is a marvelous storyteller who works readers the way a good trial lawyer works a jury."--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"John Grisham owns the legal thriller."--The Denver Post

"John Grisham is not just popular, he is one of the most popular novelists of our time. He is a craftsman and he writes good stories, engaging characters, and clever plots."--The Seattle Times

"A mighty narrative talent and an unerring eye for hot-button issues."--Chicago Sun-Times

"A legal literary legend."--USA Today
