I love my mysteries and like to switch my favorite authors up now and then. Some of my favorites are C.J.Box, William Kent Krueger, Catherine Coulter, and Jonathan Kellerman. Of course John Grisham has always been on the list, but to be honest I hadn't revisited his writing of late, as I have been frequenting some of the others like Krueger whom I have read all of his books, and Box who I can't get enough of. Now that has drastically changed by the reading of "The Whistler" not since the "The Firm" have I been so rivited to one of Grisham's books. This one was very intense and quite frankly I couldn't put it down. The last few days I have been totally immersed in this book. I loved the main character Lacy Stoltz who was brillant, she was an underdog left out to the wolves as an investigator for the Florida Board on Judical Conduct. Grisham unwinds the story as Lacy and others start to investigate a judge who may have taken bribes. Little did she know what she was about to embark on was bigger than anything ever imagined, full of danger. Grisham ratchets the story in a way I can only compare to the thrill ride he gave us in the past with his novel "The Firm", that was the book that got me hooked on his writing years ago. I would say he is back in full force and up to the task when he gave us "The Whistler"!! Kudo's Mr. Grisham and welcome back to the top of your genre, I loved every minute that had me engulfed in this roller coaster ride, as intense as it was and costing me my precious sleep. The funny thing is this was a Christmas gift from my Nephew and his family. One of the best gifts I have had in years and you have the best gift of all to pen something that gives so many of us the gift of reading. I can't wait to see what you have in store for us next!!
