The premise here was enormously fun: three aging, disgraced judges serving time in a minimum security federal prison concoct a mail scam to extort money from unsuspecting victims. Their little scheme is succeeding quite well, slowly building enough money to give them hope that perhaps there is life after prison. When it turns out that one of the victims of the mail scam is the front-runner in the upcoming presidential election, things get very interesting and suddenly the three inmates realize they have far more power than they thought.

You'll be hooked within the first chapter. Grisham has a great sense of humor and it shows in this book, both in the characters and in the dialog.

Intriguing - true Grisham. 3 judges in a medium-security federal prison call themselves the Brethren. Together they fine-tune a mail scam, but their little scam goes awry. Fast read - holds your interest.

Great Grisham book that gives a story of corruption and fowl play that I think most of us suspect anyway in our justice system. He is still true to form with his great writing! One of his many books that I loved.

I have read everything written by John Grisham but could not finish this book. It did not hold my interest long enough to really get into it for long, and I found myself having to re-read portions to get back into it when I picked it up again. Not much going on there for me.
