This is not a quick easy read. Grisham addresses some serious issues in this book. To understand the motivation of the characters, and to appreciate the plot line, one needs to read this book with attention.
This book has received a fair number of negative reviews. But I disagree with the naysayers. I personally enjoy Grisham’s attention to court room proceedings as well as to the behind the scenes maneuvering by the principals. His research is impeccable.
