The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small
Once I was a firm believer in capital punishment. Four people I have known were murder victims. An eye for an was my motto. But as I grew older I learned the many prosecutors and police were just as corrupt …

Another winner by Grisham! I don't want to sound like a broken record so I'll just say that this man can truly TELL A STORY!!!

A Time to Kill
Well as usual the book is WAY better than the movie. Looks likes this one is Grisham's first novel and I see why people fell in love with him so fast! I've seen the movie and there are some pretty glaring …

The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small
I don't know Mr. Grisham, so I won't presume to speak as to what his intentions were in writing the story of Ron Williamson. I have read several of his novels, which in no way detracted from the reading …

The Last Juror
The Last Juror by John Grisham is not his typical legal thriller, but is more a coming of age story of a young reporter, Willie Traynor and the southern town he comes to call his home. He comes to Clanton …

The Broker
It used to be that I really looked forward to a new Grisham novel. Action-packed legal thriller, life and death situations, etc. But then after a few books, the writing seemed to get somewhat uneven and …

The Broker
Fast-paced, intriguing thriller that is hard to put down!! At the center of the tale is of course a wayward lawyer; in this case, it's Joel Backman--a Washington lobbyist whose greed for power, money …

The Last Juror
The Last Juror is a very intriguing story and I was pleased to learn more about the southern town of Clanton, Mississippi where Grisham's first novel, A Time to Kill, was also set.  Being a …

The Broker
I've found John Grisham to be uneven. Sometimes he is a fun read; sometimes I just give up and move on.     In "The Broker," Grisham is near the top of his form.     …

The Last Juror
"The Last Juror" is a bit of anomaly. There are many times when I have read non-fiction and found it hard to believe that the story is TRUE. While reading "The Last Juror" I had to keep reminding myself …

The Last Juror
Not exactly what I'm used to from a Grisham novel, but a decent story nonetheless. Tale is set in Clanton, Mississippi, where a young man with his rich aunt as a benefactor is able to purchase the town's …

The Last Juror
Although I'm not to the point with Grisham as I am with Patricia Corwell's Kay Scarpetta series, I'm getting a little burned out on uneven writing. I finished The Last Juror, Grisham's latest novel, and …

Small town Mississippi a few decades back. A secretive gangster family, corrupt politicians and a young widow just trying to get on with her life - until it is rudely terminated in gruesome rape and murder. …

The Runaway Jury
Grisham often has heroes who have so carefully crafted their battles against their enemies that the pleasure comes not from seeing who will win, but in watching the hero's scheme unwind. We marvel at …

This is a well told story with a solid plot and some captivating subplots. The descriptions of the emotions of Carl Halley and the events that surround him are told in a manner as if you were experiencing …
