At almost 700 pages, this is a heavy paperback. Thank goodness Grisham still knows how to tell a good story. I ripped through this in a few evenings, enjoyed the entire thing. Grisham revisits Jake, the young lawyer from his first novel, "A Time to Kill". Jake gets a civil case this time, protecting the estate of a wealthy local who leaves everything to....well, I won't spoil it. The legal ins and outs are convincing and the twists and turns makes you appreciate how complex our laws have become. A good story and a great escape.
