Product description

Review

"The Confession is the kind of grab-a-reader-by-the-shoulders suspense story that demands to be inhaled as quickly as possible. But it's also a superb work of social criticism in the literary troublemaker tradition of Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle....Brilliant"--Washington Post

"Grisham is the master of the legal thriller."--USA Today


NO ONE KEEPS YOU IN SUSPENSE LIKE AMERICA'S FAVORITE STORYTELLER

"The secrets of Grisham's success are no secret at all. There are two of them: his pacing, which ranges from fast to breakneck, and his Theme--little guy takes on big conspiracy with the little guy getting the win in the end." --Time magazine

"The law, by its nature, creates drama, and a new Grisham promises us an inside look at the dirty machineries of process and power, with plenty of entertainment" --Los Angeles Times

"With every new book I appreciate John Grisham a little more, for his feisty critiques of the legal system, his compassion for the underdog, and his willingness to strike out in new directions." --Entertainment Weekly

"John Grisham is about as good a storyteller as we've got in the United States these days." --The New York Times Book Review

"Grisham is a marvelous storyteller who works readers the way a good trial lawyer works a jury." --Philadelphia Inquirer

"A mighty narrative talent and an unerring eye for hot-button issues." --Chicago Sun-Times

"A legal literary legend." --USA Today
