Not His Best Work—Very Disappointed.
11 November 2018
I was so disappointed in this book. I’d been looking forward to it for months. I usually love Grisham’s books. This one was very slow moving with lots of time devoted to storylines that didn’t add much value to the story.
It had the potential to be great. The premise was good, the time period interesting and if chapters about Pete’s time in the Phillipines referred back to the primary storyline the book could have been very good.
I was really hoping for a Grisham twist, something to save the day but it was entirely predictable and just fizzled out.
