My first Grisham book and I have to say, it was alright. Nothing spectacular. It was sufficiently interesting to be read at a decent pace.

Surprisingly, at least to me, was the fact that the book followed more than the judges in prison. It offered a nice change of pace. After all, how much can be written about the days of inmates in a boring jail?

The ending was amusing, although I thought for certain that something else was going to happen.

There is enough legal mumbo-jumbo and politics to be classified as a political thriller, but I wouldn't call it a thriller. It's just fiction. Not thrilling in the least.
