This was not one of my favorite Grisham works. The book moves along very slowly and the ending, while some may not see it coming, is rather weak. I might have enjoyed this book better in abridged form as much of the prose seems excessive and wasteful and many of the actions unnecessary in moving the story along in the unabridged version - seemed a bit like treading water at times. On the positive side, Grisham does present and develop some wonderfully interesting characters and includes one of my favorite of his previous characters, Harry Rex, in plentiful doses throughout the book and the premise is intriguing.
This was my first Grisham book and I throughly enjoyed the twists and turns. The reader has an extremely pleasant voice and the characters very very distinct.
This book goes very quickly and I like the narrator a lot. I look for more books read by Michael Beck. The story was good, suspenseful, but not to the point I couldn't drive and listen. LOL!
If you enjoy light reading with some suspense, you'll like this one.
