Product description

Review

...Grisham at his passionate best, conveying every ounce of his anger at the corruption behind the law. It is his finest book for some time. Do not miss it., Daily Mail

A canny and engrossing blend of two types of Grisham novel: enough of the familiar formula of a single lawsuit in a single town, mixed with a more picaresque and multistranded approach that has the significant advantage of taking in a wider swathe of America, The Sunday Times

Simmering with righteous and understandable anger in place about the manifest injustices of the US criminal justice system, Financial Times

The master of the legal thriller turns to one of his real-life passions - freeing those wrongly convicted. Inspired by true stories, the skilful plot follows an "innocence lawyer", who goes up against dangerous foes as he dedicates himself to freeing a man behind bars for the murder of a lawyer., Sunday Mirror

Delivered with all his signature easy, flowing style. A past master at the art of deft characterisation and the skilful delivery of hair-raising crescendos, Grisham makes this a deceptively easy read. But The Guardians is much more than a simple legal divertissement... Grisham aims a spotlight at the all-too-prevalent venality of the American 'win at all costs' prosecutorial attitude... much of his inspiration is based on tragic fact, Irish Independent

This is typical Grisham: speedy, gripping, very good at conveying the complexities of the law in a digestible way, Sunday Express

Speedy and gripping, Daily Mirror

No one with any interest in justice could resist this story, which Grisham has structured with all his familiar skill. The good characters are sympathetic, the wicked are truly revolting and the rage is wholly understandable, Literary Review

A taut, shocking legal thriller, Saga Magazine

a crusading novel, The Sunday Times
