This was really more of a 2.5 star book. A middling Grisham offering. Not really good, but not really bad either. I won a signed copy of this here on GR. They gave away several back titles just before his newest one came out. I've been reading this off and on for a little over a month now, so you can see it didn't really hold my interest much. If I'd never read it I wouldn't have missed much!
